I have loved the Buggy Barn patterns over the years but recently the company (and quilt store) closed its' doors. The web site is even gone which is good - drives me crazy to find an abandoned web site.
Anyway - TWO of the quilts we worked on at The Hobby Horse were from Buggy Barn. I have to say that I have attempted to get one of them done - hmmm - about three times now. Still not done! But I will get it done ................ someday!
|Farm Fresh by Buggy Barn|
This is the one that I have attempted on three separate occasions. Well - I have made good progress, but still a long way to go. There were a couple of people who worked on this quilt. Only one person was at show n tell.
|Lynn did a fabulous job on her quilt. Note she changed the US flags for Canadian flags. Still a bit of work to finish up the applique on the borders but I know she will have it done soon!!!!|
|The second quilt we worked on (also by Buggy Barn) is called Garden Party|
This one is a bit more complicated - there were LOTS and LOTS of pieces. They were HUGE pieces and much overlapping into adjoining blocks. Yes - I started the project, but no time to finish it!! But have a look at what the class did with theirs - they are awesome.
|Maureen - she took the big flag out and put in some flower pots. She also used a lot of wool for some of the smaller pieces. Still a bit more work to do but looking awesome!!! Nice to see the BRIGHT version.|
|Maureen's owl tucked up in the tree. This was an embroidery applique|
|Linda - still hard at work on her version. Like I said - there is a LOT of work on this quilt. But it is looking AWESOME!!!! There are a few "design" elements on this one and you can't even tell where they are!!!!|
|This is Mary who made a LOT of changes - I will show you a bit more in a minute.|
|Sacha - she has made some great progress, but she still has a lot of applique to go. This one is going to be bright!!!! I love it!|
|OK - here is a better picture of Mary`s|
Mary was very AMBITIOUS and her quilt top was not only done, but it was quilted as well!!!!!!
|She switched out the flag for a bee hive with bees|
|Her bucket of berries|
|First cat was switched out for a bunny|
|Cat number two - gone. A family of owls moved in|
|And she added a squirrel where the owl was.|
|Her church bird house!|
That show n tell was awesome. BOTH of those quilts were a HUGE amount of work and everyone is to be congratulated that they got so much done. I have hopes that I will get mine done. I am thinking - desert island with nothing else to do. Then it will get done!!!!! I don`t need that desperate of measures (I hope).
On that note - I have other stuff to blog, but I also have a date with the long arm. One of these days - it would be so nice to get up and have NOTHING due that day!!!! Maybe in a week that will happen!!!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!
