(April showers bring) Mae Flowers!

This is my next baby quilt pattern. I hope to get it hand quilted in the next 2 weeks. I'm just lovin it! I'm planning on calling it (April showers bring) Mae Flowers. My dear mother-in-law's name was Glenna Mae and I also have some other dear friends with that middle name too, so that's the reason for the different spelling. All the flower petals are vintage fabrics, hopefully you can see that in this closer picture.

Clarinda Trunk Show

I had my 1st trunk show of the New Year at the Clarinda quilt guild and here are a few pictures.This is my Farmer's Daughter quilt that I made after choosing the name of my business. Mostly vintage with 7 feed sacks on the back and lots of polka dots! Hand-quilted by me! This is me showing a glass that I use at retreats that has polka dots on it. Just showing it in case anyone has a few more they could part with. I'll have to get a better picture of it sometime. Another picture of part of the goodies I showed the ladies. Thanks to the Clarinda ladies for having me speak!
