Janet's most recent post is chock FULL of delightful projects and beautiful quilts, and always, the photo header on her blog is STUNNING !!! I always see God in her sunset or sunrise photos.
I am a quilter - a retired widow living in the Nebraska Panhandle. I am surrounded by beautiful semi-arid ranch country, and treeless hills and fields under incredibly wide blue skies, 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.

A surprise win!

Sometimes, a simple border is best. Thank you to several blogging friends for the excellent suggestion.

A 30 gallon bag of scraps
I mentioned my gifted bag of scraps in a previous post. At first glance, that bag didn't look very appealing but the simple job of sorting them into lights and darks encouraged possibilities. Here is the pretty surprise. Only a small amount of "lights" was needed from my existing stash. It still needs some kind of creative border.
It's hot in western Nebraska, upper 90s.

Finished, but no name ???
I made the WELCOME banner long before I finished the quilt. The banner was made from the quilty crumbs. There are 20 blocks in all.
Perhaps I should just name the quilt "WELCOME" ??

Guild Raffle Quilt for summer 2023
Friend Carol gave me a huge bag of scraps that she inherited from ???, most very small, and some too ugly to use (IMHO). I sorted them and discovered there was a healthy supply of lights, darks and red/orange/yellow combinations. After sorting, they are now all pressed and ready for ??? who knows what???. They really are perfect for yet another Pineapple or Log Cabin, or String or .....something.
