Idaho Story Quilts-This is what you will be looking at size wise for your quilts for your workshop
When we visited my Aunts house in the country we always had chicken and pork and beef and eggs and bacon and cream and lots of fresh vegetables. It wasn't until I got older that I realized all of the fun animals on the farm were also on the dinner table.
We always had fresh flowers on the table and we walked up and down the hill when we went to visit the swimming pool in the little town-swimming was my most favorite thing to do then.
The quilt up above is of my daughter and her girlfriend Genera when they sold lemonade....I am sure some of you have seen these before but I wanted to show people who are taking the story quilt classes what they can do if they don't want to do a huge quilt.
Below is the house as my little girl mind remembers it along with the bird in the tree,,,it was a really fun place to go and see...and now I am the only one here who remembers
This is a good reason why YOU should do a story quilt-what do you remember?
