A Look Back on September 2021

Made some Ash bags for my sister- a friend of hers died from cancer and  7 friends were taking her ashes to spread on some trail rides they all enjoyed together


Our son Kevan and his partner Meghan came for a visit over Labor day weekend and helped out at the farm we volunteer at.


Another 3" Mini Quilt


UFO finished and sent to a friend- small angel pillow


My piece for the SAQA Trunk Show 2021- it started out as a feather but turned into a Pod.


Had a great visit with 2 friends at the Milwaukee Art Museum to see the Quilts of Pauline Parker exhibit


Finished my sister's 60th Birthday quilt- she turned 60 in January of 202 but we all know how that went! Will take it to her in October when we go for a visit. She saw the cover of the Quiltfolk magazine and asked if I could make her one like it. It's made from all scraps.


My little Fall decor
