Design Wall Monday

……or design bed as the case is today.  This is a framed nine patch from Jan’s tutorial here made with a bundle of fat quarters.  This is a scrap club project that I think I’ll want to make a little bigger with borders of some kind.  We’ll see.

We took a drive through some rural farming country this weekend and were looking at the animals on the farms.  DH and I both did a double take at this one:

Take a closer look:

What the heck????  Where do you get a zebra in southern Illinois?

I did a favor for a friend and she gave me a gift certificate to Hancock’s of Paducah……which explains why this was on my doorstep when I got home tonight.  Beefing up my neutrals and a beautiful purple piece 🙂  Gotta love the Hancock’s yellow/green florescent shipping bags 😉  Thanks, Margaret!!

Linking up with Judy’s DWM post.


For the Record III

A few more 2016 things I want to capture for my reference.  Hanging out with quilting friends last year I acquired some 6 yard cuts of one of my favorite fabric designers…..Jo Morton.  They were a fantastic deal, really great, but I always allow myself to buy Jo Morton because they don’t sell them in my LQS’s.    

Jo Morton did this patriotic print…..isn’t it fabulous? 

And some shirt additions…..the dark purple stripe on top has already been used in my RSC17 blocks 🙂 

And I think that wraps up what I missed blogging about in 2016 🙂
