Story

I found this cute panel at the Cambridge Len's Mill Store (new location) and thought it would be fun to make up for the Sale. Chip & Joanna Gaines of "Fixer Upper" fame have modernized the farmhouse look and made it very popular again. So, I bought it, sewed on a couple of borders & used black and white flannel buffalo plaid for the back. My 86 years young mom quilted it by hand and, although she wasn't too thrilled about quilting the dark border because dark fabrics are so hard to see on while quilting, she thoroughly enjoyed quilting around the farm pics and words. This quilt is perfect to warm your toes on the couch, warm your lap while sitting in your favourite chair, to use as a crib quilt or even to hang on the wall. I really love how it turned out.
