Farmgirl Quilt


Is this not the cutest Farmgirl quilt?!? I wish I could say I made it but...NOT! LOL!!

I met Marie at the Tucson Quilters Guild annual quilt show yesterday afternoon. Marie is a member of the guild and a very good quilter. It was fun to see all the beautiful quilts and have some insight from a real quilter on design and fabric selelction. I have pieced quilt tops before but have never done any actual 'quilting'. It is something I would like to try now that I'm 'retired'. It was also fun to visit all the vendors! I bought some pink socks to make the granddaughter a pink Sock Monkey, a pattern for quilted, stuffed bears and a pattern for a wool applique wall hanging.


I really liked the 3-D details of the clothes on the line. :)

P.S. Marie was kind enough to take these pictures for me since I neglected to bring my camera. Thanks Marie!

It's always fun to go to a quilt show. I really like that quilt, too. Can't wait to see what you make with your new patterns.

Great post! So glad you enjoyed the day. Just wish we could have had more time. I was so glad you joined me! (And thanks for the compliment! :-) )

As the daughter and granddaughter of quilters, I so appreciate these fabulous works of art. My grandmother did a lot of applique and of course, hand-quilted her work! My mother started as an adult and hand-quilted until about 6 years ago, when she began having them machine-quilted. This is a wonderful quilt!

Love it! That clothesline was a really creative idea!!

I LOVE this quilt Candy. Michelle and I were just talking about doing a B.O.M. Farmgirl quilt and I have been designing one, NOTHING this sophisticated mind you, but I've been craving getting creative again in my sewing room. This one reminds me of the one Michelle made for her guild's Christmas Quilt exchange. Her 3D effect was a string of mini Christmas lights on a fence. This is too cute. Thanks for sharing it.

That is a super cute quilt find! Quilts are an art form all their own.

I am so glad that you and Marie had fun at the quilt show. You should take up quilting. It's so creative and relaxing. I think you'd love it.

WOW! This is beautiful. Imagine personalizing it? Your house, your horse, etc. I agree that the 3D adds so much.

Ida said...

Oh this is a wonderful and darling quilt. Love the details.

Little Homestead In Boise said...

I want one! What a great design!!!

That is adorable. I think I've put hand-sewing a quilt on my bucket list. I think it's going to have to wait a while though.
