It's Quiet!!!!

I can't believe  how quiet it is around my welcoming barks when I got up this morning.  I feel a bit lonely.  I imagine I'll soon recover...:-) The 2 kitties are still curled up sleeping down the basement, but they are quiet and every once in a while are playful.  They are absolutely no bother except for the hair they shed....:-(
Barbara is an artist with doubt about it.  Hand quilting just always makes quilts extra special.

This is a unique design which I have never seen before and looks like a challenge.

Love these traditional designs.  They are the ones that really speak to me, however I have an appreciations for a great variety of styles.


This is a little autograph quilt.  It holds the signatures of those who all worked at Gentler Times Quilt shop together.

Isn't this a unique and beautiful piece of art?  Barbara has made her home warm and extraordinary.....and it was a delight to enjoy a quilty evening there.
Speaking of being artistic, I'll sign off with this quote and hope you all have a splendid week end.
"I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people".
Vincent Van Gogh.


  1. Barbara's quilts are so beautiful and what a wonderful variety of quilts. Thank you for sharing them with us. Hand quilting is the best, I must take the time and do more of it.
    I'm working on Home is Best so it would be a great one to hand quilt as it's not too big.

  2. Barbara certainly has made some beautiful quilts--very inspirational!

  3. I love the quilt in the second photo. Do you know the name of the pattern or block?
