    Kansas Winter

    I was searching for additional fabric and auntpiggylpn of the Board helped me to find a source at The Hometown Quilter in Davison, MI. I really appreciated the help. I have just finished pieceing the top and thought you might like to see it. Another big thanks to Auntpiggy and to The Hometown Quilter for there exceptional customer service.

    Oh, it is pretty and so homespun-looking, what soft colors.

    Davison also has "Linda's Country Quilt Shop" on M-15 just north of Potter Road. Very nice shop with a good supply of Civil War Fabric along with everything else.

    I really love your quilt, it's beautiful! I especially like the second border, the one that looks like bricks, but I'm wondering what the black is around that border. I can't tell in the picture on my computer but I like how it looks. It also looks like you surrounded the complete center with black. Is it just my computer?

    A lovely quilt! It looks quite big. Was it hard to arrange the blocks when it's that size?

    I put a flange of black around all three of those areas. I cut the strip 1 inch wide, folded it in half and sewed it in along with the border so that only a 1/4 inch is still showing. I really think it makes each area stand out. I plan to back the quilt with the same material and use it for the binding as well. How sharp eyed you are to notice it.

    This is a queen sized quilt. I don't think it is any harder to arrange than a table runner or lap quilt. I seem to naturally go toward the larger quilts for some reason. It is harder to quilt on a domestic machine than a smaller item, but I am not very good at FMQ and usually wind up sending mine out to a longarmer unless it is very basic stitch-in-the-ditch or linear designs.

    Wow I didn't know Davison had another quilt store other than Lindas. Your quilt is beautiful. Is the store in someone's house?
