I am a quilter - a recently-retired woman living with my husband in the Nebraska Panhandle. We are surrounded by beautiful semi-arid ranch country, and treeless hills and fields under incredibly wide blue skies. We are located far from the upheaval found often in large towns or cities. I am blessed to have delicious time to quilt and to appreciate my peaceful moments in an unpeaceful world.
Hmmm - when a person cleans out unused bedside cabinets, she ought to be prepared to find things like this! Are they not ridiculously fun? The Rooster is 16 inches and the chickens are 12 inch blocks. The combs and waddles are all 3-dimensional, and so are the tiny beaks on the chicks. Why didn't I finish these? Perhaps I didn't know what to do in the sashing. I think I'll make sashing out of squares of ... something. The pattern was wrapped up in the bunch of blocks and is from Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, July/August 2000. It DOES need to be finished!
Oh yes, there's more in that cabinet. I'll save that for another day!
