Last Day to Play!

Reminder--the drawing for the free copy of the Kansas City Star Quilts book, From the Bedroom to the Barnyard will take place Thursday. Anyone who orders a calendar between now and then will be entered!

It is a great book for any quilter--especially one who appreciates barn quilts--with a lot of barn quilt info and patterns to make a barn quilt sampler. The book is pictured in the column on the right side of this page; you can click on the image to learn more.

Good luck!

It's another drizzly gloomy day; I'm just glad that I got home before things got too crazy out there.

I decided to go with a cheerful photo this time--a really lovely scene from Racine, Wisconsin. Jean Jacobson's gardens are just spectacular, and the one that graces the area in front of the barn is just a sample.

Of course, the barn quilt was painted by her garden club. I think it really completes the scene!


  1. Any chance of going into the draw a I have already purchased two calendars. I live in hope.

  2. The colors on that barn quilt against the color of the actual barn is so stunning! Love it!!!

  3. I just ordered my calendar, please enter me in the drawing! I realize more and more with every one of your posts how mesmerized I am with the barn quilts. Thanks for all your hard work!

  4. Sue-sent you a message.

    Sandi, Thanks so much for ordering. I am glad you are enjoying the quilts! Good luck in the drawing.

    Ladies, if you don't win this one, I will have one more at the beginning of December, and all who have previously ordered will be eligible.

    It was very nice of the Kansas City Star folks not only to write about me and Donna Sue but also to send me a batch of these books!
