Quilted Farm Friends
It's Farm Friend Friday
This gives me the perfect
opportunity to dig back
in my collection of photos
and share some more of
Mrs. Z's beautiful quilts....
It was hard to pick a favorite
but, this Farm Quilt
is definitely in the running!
to see more of her fun quilts and where
I could've sat and stared at
this gorgeous piece of farm art
for hours and not seen
all of the many intricate details!
Every imaginable farm animal,
all captured in cloth and quilted thread!
Isn't it fun to look at?
A real farm crowd pleaser!!!!
Twila (Mrs. Z) thought she spent about
4 months of evenings and weekends
piecing and stitching it all together!
Then she sent it out to have it quilted by machine.
Another 22 hours on the machine and it was complete!
The photos are just some of the
All together they measure
a 62"x72" quilt.
I think it's just the cat's meow,
and would love one laying
on the bed!
But, that would mean
no more cats on the bed!
Oh ohhh well, good thing
I don't have one I guess.
From the squigly little tails on the pigs
to the weather vane on the barn...
I just can't imagine
cutting and then stitching
around everything on this quilt!
Kudos to you, Mrs. Z, on your fine work!
It's PURPLE ribbon material in my eyes
definitely something to crow about!!
Thanks for stopping by, farm friends!
