NEW QUILT AND SNOW........


I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT DOING A NEW 
QUILT DESIGN WITH EAGLES FOR THE PAST 
FEW WEEKS AND FINALLY GOT GOING ON IT
THE OTHER DAY.  MY DEAR FRIEND JUDY
GAVE ME A TON OF GREAT QUILT FABRICS
(THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, JUDY!)
AND I'VE BEEN INSPIRED BY THEM TO DO 
SOMETHING AMERICANA BUT IN A MUTED
MORE PRIMITIVE WAY. THERE WILL BE 
NO WHITE IN THIS QUILT BUT LOTS
OF TANS AND BROWNS ALONG WITH REDS AND 
BLUES.  I FOUND AN ANTIQUE
QUILT ON PINTEREST THAT HAD A SIMPLE
EAGLE APPLIQUE DESIGN AND WAS INSPIRED
TO COME UP WITH WHAT I HAVE HERE.
IT WILL BE VERY SCRAPPY WITH THE SASHING
AND BORDERS AND I SURE HOPE IT COMES
OUT LIKE I ENVISION IT!  I'M STILL WORKING ON
THE LOWER RIGHT HAND BLOCK AND
PLAN TO ADD SOME FOLKY APPLIQUED STARS
TO EACH BLOCK EITHER SIDE OF THE
EAGLES HEADS.  STAY TUNED
FOR MORE TO COME ON THIS PROJECT.
IF I LIKE HOW IT COMES OUT I'LL DO 
AN E-PATTERN OF IT.


FIRST WE GOT RAIN A WEEK AGO THAT FROZE
ON EVERYTHING AS TEMPERATURES 
DROPPED. NOW WE HAVE BEEN GETTING
SNOW ON TOP OF THAT AND I'M RUNNING
OUT OF ROOM TO PUT IT WHEN I SHOVEL!
HERE IS OUR LITTLE SHED HOLDING ON
IN THE GENTLE FOLDS OF SNOW
AND PATIENTLY WAITING FOR SPRING.
THANKFULLY WE HAVEN'T LOST POWER
BUT I NOTICED WE HAVE SOME POPLARS BENT
OVER SOME POWER LINES LIKE YOU SEE
BEHIND THE SHED SO WE CALLED THE
POWER COMPANY TO COME TAKE A LOOK.
THEY HAVEN'T AS YET BUT I'M SURE WE 
ARE NOT A HIGH PRIORITY.  WE DO HAVE 
A GENERATOR SO AM THANKFUL FOR THAT!

WISHING ALL A BLESSED WINTERS DAY.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

I'm loving the quilt and am looking to do one similar so I hope you do a pattern. I know it's not done but everything you make is always right up my ally. We are getting pounded by snow over here in northern MN too. We have not had this much snow in many years. Stay safe and warm.

Wonderful primitive eagles and colors. Lucky you to have a generator just in case.

Krissy B,
Thank you! If all goes well with the rest I probably will but quilt patterns are more work to put together. For me anyway! We haven’t had this much snow in several years either. At least not all in a row! Have a great day. Lori

Saundra, thank you! I’m really enjoying working on the quilt. I would like to make a larger Americana rug too but haven’t decided just what yet. I love the flag one Kelley Belfast made inspired by an antique rug so maybe something along those lines. I have to pull the generator outside to hook it up but am so thankful we have that option.

How I am lovin' that eagle quilt. I love all things patriotic.
I hope for your sake you get an early spring. We have had very little snow and that is ok by me.
Stay warm and safe!

What a fun, fun, quilt! I love the colors and the patriotic theme.... Yes, strange and brutal winter.... We had over 16” of snow last Tuesday and Thursday, -30 windchills again (better than the -60 we had the week before I guess), another 7” or so yesterday and tomorrow ice, then 13” of snow...and winds again. HELP!!! Hope the burdened trees don’t cause problems for you.... We lost power for 3 days after an ice storm a few years ago....in bone-chilling winter temps....and shortly thereafter invested in a generator....and thankfully, it kicks in automatically. We just have to hope we don’t run out of LP LOL.... Stay safe and warm.... Looking forward to your eagle quilt project updates... Have a great week! Robin

Wonderful blocks and I do love the antique eagle quilts.
We are getting a little snow tomorrow, but then more rain.

Hope all goes well with your power. Ice storm and snow on tap in the morning. So ready for Spring! Your eagle quilt will be very patriotic! Janice

Thank you friends! I am really enjoying working on the quilt. I am however, a bit weary of shoveling and blowing snow! Hopefully we will have a break in weather soon. Lori
