Pictures are worth 1000 words

This quilt is my January quilt , I made it with sparkly firework fabric. Thje fabric below was to be for the backing but its too red so I dyed some more that is going to be ready tomorrow.

While I am waiting for the fabric to get washed ( 4 times to get the excess dye out) I am working on this ( no longer ) mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter. 11 down and 9 to go then on to the star blocks.


I am laughing this morning at Judy's blog title " Yikes ". Judy stepped into a mess by posting about cutting up an old quilt. Judy, I guess you didn't know that the only other thing you can get that many responses from would be a discussion about copyright law on the back of your favorite pattern. Just to get it started my particular favorite is when a pattern states that not only may I not make copies and pass them out to my friends I also may not sell anything made from said pattern. Oh , don't get me started. But cutting up an old quilt can rile the lurkers for sure. Even if it has burn holes and chunks missing. Have fun with it !

As to me I am going to post my pictures on day 2 of Jan 31st as I have none to share. I am dyeing baking for a new quilt and am sewing blocks for my Bonnie Hunter no longer a mystery quilt. ( the issue with the reveal came out already. So once I get down to my room I will post pictures.
Its raining again and so the horses will not get new shoes. We have ridden twice this week but yesterday was cold and overcast. It's amazing what a difference there is between 45 with and without sun.
I am off to feed horses and maybe take a picture or 3 in my room.
