Along with all the new Christmas samples we've been making, we've been doing some Fall and halloween, too. This one is called Jolly Jack.

Tonight I sat on the porch and finished the binding on my latest applique project. I used a pattern that was meant for wool but did it in traditional needle turn. What a beautiful day and evening!

Pumpkin Gathering Retreat is just around the corner (Friday evening Sept. 9 and all day Saturday Sept. 10). If you'd like to see the quilt we'll be doing, get more details and find a printable registration form, visit the Events Page of our website

Sorry, I haven't done much with the blog lately. I've been making a big decision. It's time for me to retire. I'd like to devote more time to Charlie and the farm and also my quilting.

So, as of this past week Prairie Star Quilts is for sale. If you or someone you know has ever wanted to own a quilt shop, here is your chance to own a well established award winning shop. I would be happy to discuss it with anyone who is seriously interested. I want the shop to go on - afterall, I need a place to buy fabric, too.

In the meantime we are going ahead and planning our Fall events. In the next few days I'll be showing you a photo of our Pumpkin Gathering quilt for 2011 (Sept. 9 & 10).
