    How have I missed all these pretty stack and whacks! The blue butterflies is stupendous, Carrie. As is the brown quilt.
    QNS what a bright cheery one, too.
    We all sigh at Mirabelle's quilts, don't we?
    Our quilt guild had a SNW workshop--I choose not to participate, mostly because I really don't need to buy anymore fabric and I prewash my fabric so couldn't grab from my stash. I did get some scrap border print from a friend and may be able to get 9 4P repeats so just may give it a try with finished 5 inch blocks. Would work for a fundraiser quilt, wouldn't it?

    And yes so good to have the glue back!!
    Spent the day ripping up old denim for mud room rugs. Have one finished, one almost, and a third close to being done. Afraid now that weather's turning colder and the snow starts to fly these will be in need. They work great to absorb moisture from mud/snow covered boots. Then just throw them in the washer with DH's dirty farm jeans. Here's what a dirty one looks like.

    OKSGlad ... How appropriate, denim rugs for the farmhouse mud room!!!
    Do you layer the denim? Or just the single layer and then the raggy seams?
    FYI Just cause you have washed your fabric, does not mean you cannot do a SAW/OBW/4PP.
    My Shabby Chic OBW fabric was prewashed. I was told by the LQS where I took the course to just press and starch it well. I had no problems lining up the layers and cutting the stacks. I discovered then how the starch prevents fraying too!

    For some reason, I can see you doing a mini-OBW!

    This particular one is made like the rag quilts; a layer of filler between 2 layers of denim. See the X through the squares? I use filler (can be old t shirt squares, towels, flannel) cut smaller than the denim squares--less bulk in the seams, so that's why the X is sewn to hold the filler in place.

    Maybe time to a piece of fabric starched well

    Thanks OKSGlad ... I didn't see the X's before, but once you mentioned it I enlarged it and yup, there they are!

    A great way to recycle old denims and other oldies for a useful and practical result.

    Now, OksewGlad, if that one is a dirty one, you must change rugs every time one set of shoes steps on it. My Dh tracks in more than that...into the garage, then into the house. A mat outside the kitchen door helped, but it mysteriously disappeared somewhere?? Dh loves to 'play' with dirt; garden dirt, compost dirt, and cleans out the chicken house!! Everything on the place has to be 'bull' strong, or it breaks and is thrown away, including all the house ware, furniture, etc.

    Caught the pullet yesterday that was pecking on and eating the eggs in the hen house, so she will get dressed out today and put in the pot on the weekend dd and family is coming in then. They are goin' learn how to dress out their turkeys!! Themselves!! DD has declined, but volunteered her Dh.

    QNS, city girl here. When you say "dress out" their turkeys does that mean taking the feathers off?
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    QNSue ... She's not her Mother's Daughter .... not wanting to get in there and do the "business"! Great plan on her part though .. volunteer her DH! Wonder? what does her DH have to say about that plan?


    JanRN ... what? do you not think that QNSue is going to put dresses on her chickens? She's been busy sewing them all summer, knowing they need them for the cccccold winter ahead, and being that they are girls, dresses are in order!!!

    Sorry, JanRN, when we butcher the fowl on the farm, we call it "dressing" out the birds...wringing the neck or chopping of the head, sometimes shooting it with a 22 rifle...scalding the feathers, so we can take the feathers off, then bring it inside and de-gut it and cut it up to fry or roast. My foster grandparents ran a poultry house in late '30s and could dress out a chicken in record time, and passed the knowledge on to us. So, who do we pass it on it now?? Guess it will a last art.

    Machines do it in picking factories where the super market chickens come from.
