My souvenir from the trip is this barn quilt my sister painted for me. She took the pattern from the quilt, "Monkey See, Monkey Do" in my book Quilts from Skunks Hollow. Mark hung it at Studio 3 right away. That means he likes it. She made another we will keep at the house. I never heard if it was her intention to make one for each place. How could she possibly have known two of my favorite blocks. The other is the Weathervane, also in the book. I love them all, the quilts, the blocks and the barn quilts. I wonder if there is another name for those painted wood blocks. I'm seeing them all around.
I thought I would especially enjoy quilting now my leaf quilt from a few years ago. I want to really work at developing that lost habit I had of sewing daily. I started this one last night. It is a small one so I must get going on prepping the quilting on the next one. I'm not sure if I have the back for it though.
Hooking up with a linky party. Design Wall Mondays is now hosted at
Small quilts and Doll quilts blog.
Oh Scrap is a linky party hosted by quiltingismorefunthanhousework blog. I think I'll link with both of them. I see many of us llink with more than one. I wish I had the time to browse the other quilty linky parties on other days.
