Day 94 - of 100 Days of Quilts
Country Thyme - from "Down In The Valley"

It feels like we are coming full circle! I found this picture of a table runner from our first book, and it made me smile, because lately Cori and I have been designing a lot of new table runners.

This project was from the first chapter of the book, which was called 'Prairieland'. This chapter was near and dear to us, because it represented where we live. I know that many, MANY people travel as fast as they can through the prairies - on their way to some other place, but when you live here, you can start to see the beauty of wide open spaces.

The buildings in this chapter also reflect our simple prairie dwellings. The old houses and barns have simple lines, and the church is small but quaint. What do the buildings in your area look like? In your next project, why not bring pieces of your town into your home.

See you soon.

Good idea! I will have to think about that. Our community is rather diverse, some rural, some farm lands, and a lot of subdivisions! It sure would be nice if it stayed farm land. But as they say that's progress! (sometimes progress ain't so grand!)
Keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to Aug. 1st.
