Do you Still Quilt?

I often hear that question. I still do quilt. Not as much as I once did before I opened a retail store, but I try to squeeze in a stitch or two here and there.

I am putting binding on this quilt. Don't you love the Clover Wonder Clips?


It is a design from Lori Holt, of Bee in My Bonnet. I used a lot of her lovely fabrics. She has the cutest patterns that are just fun and her directions and illustrations are fantastic. 





This is another Lori Holt design from her book Farm Girl Vintage. The blocks are so much fun! I am working on a collection of quilts to give to my granddaughters when they are young adults. This is one of them.





Still working on Sue Spargo's quilt, Crimson Tweed. Love combining wool and cotton.



Back to wool for now.

Horse and Buggy Country Trunk Show at Woolkeeper®


It is my pleasure to share with you photos of a trunk show currently at Woolkeeper. Karen Hahn, of Horse and Buggy Country, graciously allowed Woolkeeper to feature a display of her most lovely work. I love her designs! I think you will, too. Everyone who has visited the shop has falling in love with them and wanted to make them all. I have heard nothing but compliments and admiration for Karen’s pieces.


Here are a few photos of this delightful collection.
 



I have made kits available at Woolkeeper for 2 of Karen’s gorgeous patterns.

Purple on the Prairie



And Chicory in the Pumpkin Patch  

In addition to those kits, Woolkeeper has almost all of Karen’s pattern available for purchase at the shop. I will be kitting more of the patterns each week. Also Woolkeeper's online shop has Karen's patterns available for purchase.  Karen Hahn also has a shop on Etsy where she sells patterns for her designs and some finished pieces.

How fortunate I am to have met Karen and to be able to share her art with all of you.
Keep Stitching!
