PRAIRIE WOMEN

     I WENT TO MY CIVIL WAR CLUB MEETING AT COLORZ  FOR QUILTS  ;THEY CALL IT  PRAIRIE WOMEN  AND IS WRITTEN BY PAM BUDA.   SHE ALSO WRITES A BLOG CALLED HEARTSPUN QUILTS ,WHICH I ALSO ENJOY IMMENSELY.

    THERE WERE  MANY LOVELY AND GRACIOUS LADIES THERE WHO BROUGHT MANY QUILTS TO SHARE. MANY OF THE QUILTS WERE FROM PATTERNS FROM THE PROGRAM BY PAM BUDA AND SOME WERE QUILTS OF THEIR OWN DESIGN.


THIS IS MY TOP ,  FROM ONE OF THE PROGRAM PATTERNS. I MADE IT MY OWN BY CHANGING COLOR PLACEMENT AND TURNING ONE OF THE PIECES A DIFFERENT WAY .  BUT STILL CUTE IN ITS OWN WAY.  I HAVE NOT QUILTED IT YET BUT HOPE TO HAND QUILT IT ; AND AS I AM JUST STARTING HAND QUILTING , I LIKE TO PICK SMALL THINGS.  IT IS APPROXIMATELY 25"  X  31".                                                           

I ENJOY GETTING TOGETHER WITH OTHER QUILTER'S  , TO NOT ONLY SHARE BUT ALSO TO INSPIRE OTHERS AND YOURSELF!  IT DOES NOT TAKE MUCH SOMETIMES TO LIFT ANOTHER UP.  MY SPIRIT LIFTS UP A FEW FEET AFTER ONE OF THESE SESSIONS AND I ALWAYS TAKE SOME THING BACK HOME WITH ME .  SOMETIMES IT IS  NEW  KNOWLEDGE AND SOMETIMES JUST A WONDERFULLY  HAPPY UPLIFTED FEELING! 

SO LADIES DO NOT NEGLECT  A GATHERING OR TWO THIS COMING MONTH WITH OTHERS WHOM YOU SHARE  A LOVE OF.  IT WILL SPUR YOU ON AND LIFT YOUR SPIRIT!
