Flat Creek Wool and Pottery, and I have been emailing back and forth for a few months now and above is the result of our collaboration. I love it ! I especially love how Tonya patterned the geese patches to resemble real fabric. Tonya is so talented and is quite possibly the nicest person you would ever want to meet, plus she displayed an abundance of patience with me during the whole process. She deserves a medal for trying so hard to please me. The finished barn quilt was just another perfect touch to a memorable weekend.
To make it even more special, Crimson and Taylor decided to gift it to us as a thank you for hosting their wedding. The only negative aspect of the whole project was watching Mike install the quilt on the barn on the day before the wedding. I told him I thought it would be a real downer if he was in a coma and a body cast during the wedding celebration ! Mike is nothing, if not thorough, and he had put a lot of thought into the mechanics of the installation. So, with the help of the groom, the best man and a few stray painters ( who were still here a full week after their promised finish date - but, I digress ) they managed to get it mounted on the barn. In fact, it is so securely mounted that the barn could probably fall down around it and it would remain !
We're having one of those lovely, slow, drizzly rain days and I'm going to use it as an excuse to sit on the couch and knit. The knitting has been much neglected around here lately and I need to start catching up.
