Country Road

Slowly I am making my way through my sewing "to do" list.  Up next is the quilt "Country Road" found in the book, "Weekend" by Blackbird Designs.  This quilt is for my Sis in Love, Ellen.  It's because I love her so much that I'm willing to cut out 500 3 1/2" squares and 400 3 7/8" squares.  Yes, you read that right.  This fabric, also by Blackbird Designs, is just dreamy.  That's a good thing since I'll be cutting a lot of it!

We have an important wedding reception at the farm this weekend.  A dear friend's son is getting married.  I get to be a guest and an employee.  I can hardly wait.  It will be the last reception at the farm before shutting down the wedding business.  I made this banner yesterday for the bridal table. Have a good day, friends!



  1. Your quilt will be so pretty! I love your bunting!!

  2. I so love that book and the quilt pattern. This will make such a lovely quilt. Isn't that fabric just wonderful too!

    Have fun at the wedding. I think it's sad that this will be the last one :( I sure wish I could have seen the lovely place for the weddings.

  3. That is such a cute banner!! :o)
    Have a wonderful time.
    I can't wait to see your dear friend's quilt. Such a labor of love.

  4. Oh, I'm in love! What's the name of the fabric pattern that you are using?
    Your Sis-in-love is one very special person. I'm sure she will treasure the quilt and appreciate all the hard work that you are doing.
    Cutting out the fabric is the worst part of making a quilt I think. :/ Yuk!

  5. Lovely quilt pattern but that's a lot of pieces to cut and sew!

    Cute wedding banner.
