No cute tag :-(
LOL
Plan C with American Primer

I showed this one in early July so it's 'old news'. :-) I purchased a fat quarter bundle of American Primer by Moda a couple of years ago and cut my own Honey Bun (1 1/2" strips) to make a quilt called Dutch Treat. Obviously I had lots leftover - enough to cut my own Layer Cakes to make this quilt. :-) I remember snickering while making this one because it was my first experience with the huge flying geese units (they are BIG when you use 10" squares) so I started referring to them as "man eating flying geese" - LOL

My grandsons, Seth & Eli go back to school today - sigh! Seth is growing up so fast - 8th grade! And, Eli is headed to 1st grade - bigger sigh!
*
I do appreciate your visit - the parade continues tomorrow - see you then.

In Friendship!

Is this one of your favorites? I remember you saying you loved these colors.
You've done wonderfully in getting every single quilt in the book done! I'm not so sure I've ever known anybody to do that! APPLAUSE and a BOW DOWN to you!!

I haven't been around much lately with the remodeling so I haven't been able to comment every day. With that said, I was trying to decide between this month's choices. And I think you have convinced me that Plan C is the way to go. I won the big drawing last month and picked the Looking Back by Moda for my charm packs that you showed a few days ago. So.....while the floor is drying, it's off to the sewing room for a few days.

They are all wonderful quilts. I never done man eating flying geese, that's funny.
Do the kids all go back to school this early? The kids here don't go back until the day after labour day.

I love the colors in American Primer. Your quilt looks great! Our kids start back to school August 23. Emily starts junior high and Brian starts high school this year. Where did my babies go? LOL

Kaaren said...

There is nothing like a quilt with a red, white and blue theme and this one fits right in, Darlene.

I am blown away with what you've accomplished this week. I think Mr. Daze is going to have to take you on a vacation to recuperate...far away from any quilt shops...just in case you get any ideas. *wink*

Yvette said...

Hmmmmm, no tag. That's just wrong. LOL!!

I'm so impressed with your enthusiasm to keep going on the Schnibbles. One after the other, we're seeing such a parade of lovelies. There's something for everyone to enjoy.

My copy of the book is sitting on a shelf, unused so far. I think I need to pick a pattern and get started, following your lead.

I'm so glad this isn't a quilt show where I have to choose my favourite - I couldn't do it.
