Buggy Barn Quilts......

Have you ever seen this quilt made up?  Its adorable.  I have a great old pine four poster bed with pineapples at the top of each post.  My husband sanded the whole thing down for me and then I put a light whitewash and wax on it.  Saw this quilt made up on my trip to Utah a few months ago and came home and brought the book! I think it will be perfect for that bed.                                                                            Last night at Diva night at my quilt shop, I started sewing the first block.  Its taken me awhile to get all the fabrics chosen for each block.  Got some really cute ones last night for the milk can, watering can and flower containers.  Once you get the pieces cut out the handwork goes pretty quick.  Pieces are so large, they are easy to applique down.  Wish I could show you the cross-stitch piece I am working on for Christmas but I have been invited to be in an exchange and so it has to be a surprise.
Got our Christmas tree this week too!  Haven't had a big tree for a few years so I am really excited.  All those new ornaments are going to look great on it!
You all have a great weekend!!  Remember only 12 days until Turkey Day and 13 days until the new tree goes up..........

Your quilt will be beautiful! I'd be too stressed trying to find fabrics for something like this. Choosing fabric is the hardest part of quilting for me! Can't wait to see it all finished and on your beautiful bed.
