Primitive 2008

Moving some quilts around, from the upstairs, to the downstairs, to the ceiling.  So while it's available for a pic, thought I would show it to you.  May have shown it in previous posts, but it's from 2008.  I actually machine appliqued and machine quilted it.  Think it must have been a test, must not have liked the technique since I've never machine appliqued another quilt.

The red purse will probably go without straps for now, tend to carry my backpack with my life in it and can put the little purse in it when I go out and just want to carry my wallet instead of a ten pound backpack.

Still having lots of bear encounters in and around the park and here, hunting season so it tends to happen.  The one funny thing is that there is a bear coming to where we all have to take our trash down to the highway for pickup.  They call them the green boxes, but I call them dumpsters, enclosed by a big fence.  The officials have put up signs, saying bear, beware, make noise.  And close the gate when you leave, like the bear would use the gate instead of climbing over the fence.


  1. Hi Nancy,
    I really like the colours and the design on this quilt. Like you I'm not a fan of machine applique. I use a little but prefer to needle turn.
    Watch out for those bears!!
    Hugs, Angela.

  5. Your life in Montana is incredible for a french 'girl like me !! I sure I would love to live in this nature .

  6. Love that flower print - I used it in the red colorway.
    I like the way the stripe turns within the circle.
    Nice quilt!
