A Gift of Barn Quilts

My hubby and I celebrated our anniversary yesterday and what better gift for a quilter than a barn quilt?  Thanks Honey!

We have two outside buildings, a small one and a large one. This one will go on the smaller building, which is a light beige color.  I looked up this pattern and as best I can tell its a "Union Square" variation.

This one will go on the larger building, which is barn red.   The lady who sells them called it a "Stacked Star", but I didn't see it in my Quilt Block Book.

I will post pictures as soon as they are installed on the barns.

Miniature Hearts - Finish it up Friday

Here's a small finish of this Miniature Hearts quilt.

This pattern is from a Debbie Mumm book, but the hearts are made from three flying geese blocks.  Two smaller ones on top and a larger one on bottom.

I used scraps, but had just enough of everything.

This is the picture of the original quilt from Debbie Mumm.  Love the purples!  I have lots of ideas for using this pattern.

On My Sewing Table This Morning.....

A genius at work? I think NOT!

This is what my sewing table looked like this morning.  I'm making a miniature heart quilt.  I still have to add some borders, but isn't it cute so far?

These are scraps left from making three baby quilts back in the Summer.  Those three were:  ELI'S COMING, RILEY BLAKE SAW TOOTH STARS and PINWHEELS AND PRAIRIE POINTS.  (click to see them)

These scraps just keep going and going.  I'm sure I could make a couple more baby size quilts from them.
