Okay! It's fixed!

Howdy friends! I got help from Leah, Gretchen and Kristen at the PQP office! Seems I saved the image wrong! I told you I was not tech savvy right? It is there now! Have fun making the first section, and look forward to the next! Is it okay if I do them more often than once a week? I get impatient and excited ya know! Just go to the previous post, and you will find it!

This is Chester, he got tired waiting for me to get help with the pattern!

Feel free to email me with photo's of your blocks!

Ready for A Primitive Sew Along Quilt??? I am!


I've been thinking about this for a while, but wasn't sure what I wanted to do until a couple of nights ago. Then I had to clean off my table! Haha! Today, I hauled it all back out, and asked my husband to PLEASE not plan a big cook out for dinner, so I could just leave it out the rest of the weekend! I have a sewing room, but it is being a guest room for now, so I just run up and get fabric and things as I need them. I have a room on the first floor that I have brought my big machine and most frequently used items to, and it is also the laundry room! So...... The quilt....I am planning it as I go, which is how I have done most all of my Block of the Month quilts or hooked rugs, for the past 14 years! It's just the way I roll! So you will be trusting me, I know, with a lot! I believe I have half of it ready on paper, and right now, it is about 36" x 32" and growing! I haven't added borders yet, but there will be appliquéd borders. In the quilt you will find some fun pieced blocks, and many appliqué blocks with cotton, wool and some hand dyed velvet! Of course, you can use your fabrics of choice! I'm pulling everything from my large stash of treasured fabrics! Yay! The smallest blocks are 4" finished and the largest are 6"x12" or so. It's a mish mash of folk art fun! Oh, and there will be a tiny bit of simple embroidery also! I will list the sizes of fabrics to be cut for each block as we go, and will provide a downloadable template page for all appliqué pieces! This is free!! Once we are done, I will sell the complete pattern on my website.....down the road! I haven't divided it up yet, so I'll give you two or three things per week, and we should have it done in about 2 or 3 months possibly! Are you up for it?!!!! I am!! Come along!!! I'll post the first blocks in a few days, when I get some instructions on how to provide that template! You might see a few things there at the near end of my table!

Have a great evening, and get ready!!!

Fall 2014

This issue contains the perfect balance of large, medium and small projects. Like I said in my last post, the projects were photographed at the Henderson Hall Plantation, a 19th-century pre-Civil War mansion in our hometown, Williamstown, WV. I took some photos of my own during the photo shoot to share with you:

This is the back of the mansion. The front of it faces the Ohio river.

This is inside the school house. It's believed to be the oldest in WV.

Everything inside is original to the Henderson family. You will find interesting captions throughout the magazine that accompany several of the project photos. We can't wait for you to see it!
