My Quilt is in the Quilters Festival ~ Take a Look!

Many of you have seen this quilt before on my blog, but I have entered it into the Quilt Festival on Amy's Creative Side blog, so I'm showing it again. I love vintage fabric and antique quilts, so this quilt is designed to look old, (as most of my quilts are). I have quite a stash of vintage fabrics and would love to have some of them reproduced someday (that's another one of my dreams). I do sell patterns and vintage kits, if anyone is interested, email me at farmersdotter@frontiernet.net.

I designed this quilt after an antique one that I had seen, only smaller. I think it is my favorite one yet. I named it after my dear Mother-in-law who had the middle name, Mae, and a few other dear friends with that middle name.

Iris Farm Open House

I thought I'd change my title picture for iris season. I have several varieties of iris here around my house, but I just want to let you know about the Rainbow Iris Farm that we have here in our community. It's a great place to visit right now and til about the end of May. If you are in the area, give me a call and maybe you can stop in and see my flowers and retreat center too!
