Earth laughs in flowers.....

.....that was Ralph Emerson's thoughts.  By this time every winter, because of our impatience, we say, "Bring on the laughter!"

I have a table runner for you to begin working on in preparations for Spring.  It will work well into summer as well.  This pattern can be found in the Quilt Mania book, "My Quilting Legacy."  If you do not have the book, the pattern will go to the 10th person who emails me.  norma@timelesstraditionsquilts.com    It is a good idea to include your mailing address.

When arriving at my brother's house, I was reminded of the quilt which I had made some time ago to celebrate his marriage to his wife Laura.  It was a happy event that definitely needed to be celebrated!

I was happy to recall the memories of this time.  I do not remember who did the machine quilting, but the quilting is spectacular.

I believe it was a pattern from an old Blackbird book.

The quilt was one of the first things I noticed when walking into their home.

  2. Beautiful quilt!! The pattern is by Barbara Brackman. It was a BOM from the Kansas City Star which was later published in book form. Karen N.
