Farmer's wife ... The Quilt

I started this project January,2011.

I used the scraps from my Pumkins and Spice by Red Rooster quilt.

I have had it ready for my longarmer for some time


 there was a hold up.

This little selvage edge.

I LOVE selvage...

to me, it is the 'history' part of fabric.

So in all my quilts, I leave a piece of history.

So it was suggested to remove it.

I really contemplating it but I put it in because it is 'ME'.


after I made my decision...it's staying in....

I finally quilted it this week.


DO NOT mistaken ANY of this poorly stitched quilt as Terry Whitman's handy work.



she had no involvement...


 will probably scold me for not letting her 

put her AMAZING talent on it.

But I felt I only learn by doing......

 So I did on my sewing machine!!

And someone else got alot more enjoyment from binding this one than I did!

Namely.... Duracell!!

Tried and tested by Inspector Duracell again.

On the corral front,

there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

This thing is going to hold elephants!!
