Busy Hands & Needles

I'm actually sick of hearing myself say that I'm still working on all my goodies for quilt market, but when it's the truth, what else can you say?  Every day we are making good progress, but when it comes to having something new to show you, I feel like I haven't done much because we're still in the middle of things.  I sure hope you won't give up on me because there is so much I want to tell you about, but I just can't yet!!!  AAAHHH!!!!

So, how about we take a look at what the Prairie Women have been doing out there with their busy hands and needles humming.  Time for Show-N-Tell.

This quilt from Journey Three is called The Contrary Wife, and was made by the Bittersweet Quilt Shop in Pinconning, MI. 

These ladies are standing inside of Bittersweets Quilt shop, and each one of those quilts are versions of The Contrary Wife as well.  The pattern comes with 4 different options for this particular quilt.  I love them all....great job Prairie Women!!  Don't you think the shop looks wonderful??  I wanna go there!!

The Prairie Women at The Back Door Quilt Shop in Greenwood, IN, have busy hands and needles as well, working on their versions of The Contrary Wife.  Visiting this quilt shop has been on my to-do list for too long.  I have to get there this summer!

Yet another quilt from a Prairie Woman at The Back Door is from Journey One, called Seneca Falls.  Love the fabric choices!!

Well....Blogger is running so incredibly slow, that I must get to work, so how about more Show-N-Tell in my next post.  I'm just bursting at the seams to have my own Show-N-Tell about all that is new from Heartspun Quilts.  Soon....very soon.


And....we'll soon be starting our Journey together in blog-land called

Pocket Patchwork
