Thursday Girls tour in Minnesota!

It was an exciting September day for the Thursday Girls when we traveled to Shakopee, MN for a tour of the Hunt farm home & woodworking shop.   This outing was Eagle Creek Quilt Shop's annual quilted house tour.  The shop is an experience in itself of fabric & history as it is sheltered in the old railroad depot of the town.  Don't you just love old depots!! 

So thanks to Lori & Becky, owners of the shop, 11 of us enjoyed their shop first, then toured the beautiful home in the country.

We were first greeted with quilts hanging on the fences & on an old crib on the farm.
And here is the house from the front --
And from the side entry!

Inside the front door hangs one of the quilts from Country Threads new book "The Blue & The Gray." 
Isn't it sweet - album blocks with pinwheels - Remember Me!
In fact, the whole trunk show was featured in the house -
what a treat!

 The dining room leads into . . .
 Of course, the kitchen.  Old - but modernized!
How do they say that?
The old is new again!

And at the back door - the perfect boot & shoe collector - an old feed bunk!

And this beautiful quilt graced
the sunroom;
wouldn't it be the
perfect reading spot!

 Another beautiful quilt in the sunroom; that must be my favorite room in the house! 
The high ceilings make it perfect for the large pieces of furniture.
And this is the old barn converted into the woodworker's shop!  Many woodworkers would love this much room to work in, I am sure! 
A beautiful use of an old building! 
The Hunt's have done a superb
 job with this homestead from the early 1900's.
Hope you enjoyed this quick little tour.  Have a great weekend!

Jo Morton's Savannah (& others) make an awesome new quilt!

Don't you just love the mornings when you can clean the cutting table off & begin an entirely new project!  That's what I was doing the last time we visited!  
I was cutting some of Jo Morton's fabrics into a new design that is destined for Quilt Market in Houston the end of October!

Well, here are the steps that followed that first cutting! 


And voila - stars!

Stars for a new quilt for the Civil War Generals Series!  I am loving it & it's coming together fabulously!  An awesome sashing - but I can't tell it all just yet!

I'll have it to you before market !  Be sure you are receiving our newsletter by signing up on the website
