As you know, Quilt Sue and I struck up a barter…she would machine quilt my Sticks and Stones Quilt and I would make her a wool penny rug. Things like this happen all the time in Blogland!! Got to love it!!
When I asked Quilt Sue (Quilt Times) what she wanted on her mat, she said that she loved hens and roosters… well Quilt Sue received her penny rug yesterday so it’s time for the big reveal!
Sue wanted hens…well hens is what Sue got…complete with eggs!
When we went to China Beach on the West Coast of the Island I found these little speckled egg shaped rocks down on the beach…so of course I brought some home…
I think they look so sweet sitting amongst the hens…
Nothing like a little hen party…and what a nice thought to know that this little hen party is now over in England at Quilt Sue’s house…Enjoy, Quilt Sue!! Can’t wait to see the quilting on my Sticks and Stones!! Now hurry over to Sue’s for her reveal~BUT before you do that there is more fowl news…..
~ Yup the Flying Geese!!
And this ruler by Quilt in A Day~ LOVE it!! Well I received a comment from Carin and she said this ruler comes in 4 sizes to make a total of 8 different size Flying Geese!! Yahooo!!
I was going to give you this lovely little demo but I can’t even put the ruler right side up…but you get the idea!! Lay it on top and line it up to the geese and trim!!
Connecting Threads has a video to help you see how to use it…why re-invent the wheel specially when the tire is on backwards! :o)…so enjoy!!
Carin also informed me that you can order all these rulers..and more..from Eleanor Burn’s online shop, Quilt in A Day!! Check it out!!
Now you can go visit Quilt Sue!!
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting and say HI to Quilt Sue for me!!~P
PS~ Did you notice that I NOW know how to change the colour of the letters? I am sew high tech…;o)
