Another Barns Quilt, Project Linus Quilt and More

I did the Here Chick, Chick from an old magazine that was on the trade and swap table at our Christmas party for Sit and Sew. Log cabin chickens and little beady eyes---I have always thought chickens had little beady eyes---didn't take them long to look at you before they pecked you---hard!!!

The second quilt was an free BOM. The little blocks were hard to do and in some instances I just did a similar one that I thought was easier to do! The barn that is hard to see was a barn done at night. As a little girl, I always thought the barn was scary at night, but once I got inside, I was fine. The sleeping cattle always made me feel safe, for some reason. But this was 55 years ago, so who know what I was thinking!!! LOL!!

The afghan again was done with varigated yarn. These are so fun to do as I watch TV in the evening or want to pick up some quiet work in the afternoon. Still cool enough to hold them in your lap!

The last one is a Project Linus Yellow Brick Road I named May Flowers. It is somewhat brighter than it shows in the picture. Just can't get enough of that Yellow Brick Road!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
