We're always looking for wagons for people to use when they go to our pumpkin patch - feel free to drop off your old or un-used wagons at the orchard!

We're also happy to take any picnic tables you're getting rid of - even if it's just the 'bones' of the table.

Quilt of the Week

Since Diane has yet to send me the stories of her quilts...hint, hint...(Oh, and I haven't uploaded the pictures we took of them on Tuesday yet either) I will just have to post another one of mine. (It's one of my favorites!)

Disappearing Dog Star Quilt

My mother-in-law and aunt-in-law host and teach a quilting retreat every fall in Wisconsin Dells, WI. At the 2007 retreat I accomplished a lot. It was my first weekend away from home since my daughter had been born the previous year so I knew it was my chance to get some things done. The project at the retreat was to pick a quilt from the “Square in a Square” book by Jodi Barrows. I picked five…I completed three. I did sleep some, so I have to admit that I cut two of the patterns down to baby size quilts making my goals a bit more attainable.

The Disappearing Dog Star Quilt was the second quilt that I completed at the retreat. My inspiration for this quilt came when I was ‘shopping’ for fabric in my ‘mother-in-laws’ stash and I found this adorable commercial dog print fabric. It was just too cute to pass up and I wanted to use bigger pieces of it so one could really see just how adorable it was. The Disappearing Star pattern was perfect for this. The quilt is made with a combination of commercial prints and hand-dyes. I put a piece of yellow flannel on the back to create a coziness I love and I’m sure a child will also love. This quilt would be perfect for either a child or a lap quilt. My aunt-in-law, Barb Raisbeck, did the machine quilting of a doggy pattern with her long-arm machine. Size: 71.5” x 53”
