Here is your sneak peek at the second Prairie Women's Sewing Circle club project called Prairie Huswyfe. This quilt combines two of my favorite elements: basket blocks and red fabric. I'm a total sucker for them both. Is this the entire quilt or just a portion? Hmmmmm. Stay tuned!
We are making progress on the kitchen re-do and other home improvements still going on here. Granite countertops were installed last week. We hired a professional faux painter to assist with some special wall treatments. The first room, the main floor powder room, was just finished yesterday. I chose a faux sponge-y effect in shades of sage green and navy blue. I'm madly in love with the way it turned out! I promise more photos in the days to come. Right now, there's just a bare bulb hanging from a wire illuminating the pretty walls. Lovely as you can imagine! Give me a few days to clean up, install the new light fixture, faucet, etc, and I promise to show you how it's coming along.
Hope you're having a good week. If you're like me, we're all preparing for Thanksgiving Day, and beginning to think about decorating and shopping. Never a dull moment, huh!
Oh Pam, I can't wait to see it and better yet make it!!!! Karen SchultzReplyDelete
That is beautiful!! I am a big fan of red and basket blocks too! Just finished a top for my mother for Christmas with basket blocks.ReplyDelete
I am going to say that that is part of a bigger quilt! I'll stayed tuned to see if I'm right :)
I really like the different way each basket was made; looking forward to January!ReplyDelete
I recognize that French General fabric! Very nice. I like how the center of every basket is different. Very clever. Appeals to someone with quilters ADD.ReplyDelete
What a darling sneak peak! I also really like the difference in the baskets, and am guessing this is probably just a part of this project. Great fabs, too!
Gosh, you could've hired out my neighbor to sponge paint your rooms; you should see hers!! Can't wait to see your remodel progress.
