Quilt With Us

I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's work & sharing my own! We are snowed in & I plan on working on a pile of UFOs while I'm stuck in the house! We have so much snow the cattle guards are full of snow & the calves are walking right over them & escaping into the hay yard! This is my first completed UFO as of Christmas.

Greetings from a fellow Montana native, I grew up in Southeast Montana in the Miles City area. My grandparents had a ranch in the Glendive area. I remember times when they were snowed in and worried about the cattle. Hope spring is coming your way and you are able to get to more quilting in the sunshine. Would love to come by your cafe this summer when I am in the states. Marianne

What a beautiful child she is! Thank you for your comment on my blog. In ways I am thankful when the weather gets real bad, because then I have a very legitimate excuse to sew. I guess that stems back to the childhood days of not being able to go to school because of the snow or some other reason and it was like a holiday. How do you get around in the snow? Do you have a tractor and do you have to have chains on? That;s how a lot of the ranchers here are handling the weather. Our friend used his front end loader to haul the 1000 lb bails out to his cattle, and to dig a path to the hay stack.
Good luck on your being snowed in, hope you can get a handle on the calves helping themselves to the hay, and best of luck on opening your own resturante this spring. You will have to keep us informed of how things are going.

Thank you all for sharing! It's warmed up quite a bit here. All the way up to 30 degrees (F).
I made a jeans quilt years ago & they sure are heavy! Flannel is quite heavy also. The main reason I made such big squares is because I was running out of time & it being 25 below outside hubby was in the house to much. I used smaller rectangles around the center panel & planned to ge larger & larger in more rows. Didn't quite work out that way. Oh well. It came out fine & everyone was happy. Emma had to pose with her gift to Poppa. She's the light of our life!

Gorgeous little girl, I have a 4 year old granddaughter, the light of our lives. I too made a rag quilt this Christmas, a denim one for my new Step-grandson (10) boy was it heavy. I think I will stick to flannel or homespuns.

I love the large square rag quilt. I have never made one but hope to someday. What a cutie pie with her bear! Hugs, Ruth

This little gal is so beautiful! We are raising our two grandsons. The were 2 and 5 when their Mother died in a drowning. Now they are 13 and 16. It is so rewarding. Isn't being snowed in wonderful, in some ways? I mean, I live in IN and it doesn't happen as often as in your state, but as long as everyone is safe, I love having everyone home and knowng we get to spend time together. I feel for the animals, though. We have friends that we were in the service with there. Gail and Larry Lattin. I love the quilt in the picture. I just made my first rag quilt. I love how your squares are big. Carol
