Heading Home and Quilts

It’s been a sad, quiet day for me—Mom and Chuck headed down the driveway early this morning on their way home to Arkansas.  It’s been ages since I spent that much time with my Mother and although it wasn’t in the best of circumstances, I will take that time!! 


After lunch the cowboy and I went to Big Timber to run some errands, one of which was to deliver this beautiful quilt to my quilting buddy Donna.  Donna’s great-grandmother made the Dresden plate blocks—isn’t that amazing—Donna then chose the old fashioned green solid for the border and sashing, tying the blocks together.  The border will be scalloped when Donna is finished with the quilt.


On another quilting front, it is fair time in Sweet Grass County and one of my quilt retreat friends, Mary P. won Best of Show with her stack and whack quilt—congratulations Mary!!!!!  I quilted the quilt for Mary while we were down in Texas last year.


Back home we went our separate ways—the cowboy is installing camper tie downs in the back of the truck, I’m cleaning house and doing laundry—not very exciting but necessary. 


  1. Somedays - necessary trumps everything else. Congrats to your friend. That is a beautiful quilt.

  2. Stunning quilts and quilting!! Team work at it's finest!

  3. Sad that you Mom went home but very happy she was well enough to travel Janna. Those quilts were stunning as usual.

  4. Sorry that your mother's accident gave you this time but glad you two had lots of time together:) Gorgeous quilts!

  5. The gift of time is more precious every day.....

    It is delightful that your hobby connects you to so many creative people with wonderful stories. I still think about the delicate piece made from the grandmother's nightgowns.....quilts are such a wonderful way to connect the past with the future.

  6. Well soon you will be in Alaska.........with Larry and Geri....... :-)

  7. sad day? IDK... it's the contrasts that help a person see clearly... I was just going to ask and then saw Mike's comment... I knew you were supposed to leave for Alaska in July... and July is purt near gone :)
