Farm Girl Vintage


My handsome husband showing off my quilt.
The Sashing is finished.

And I'm sure you want to know how I feel about that!

No one says it better than....





~~~~~~~~~~

And not to leave Mick's talents out.

His garden is growing.


One tomato


Two tomatoes


And more.

Another storm blew through last night, so Big Mick is out picking up the tree mess.  Good exercise.  I volunteered to help....so happy he said no....:)

Happy Day to everyone!

So, you're a little excited, then? LOL Your husband is a handsome fella. And nice, too, if he didn't expect you to come help clean up the mess! Isn't it great to live in Texas, where the end of April means the beginning of harvesting? Those look so yummy, and that's a beautiful display dish, too.

Fabulous quilt! Hubby did a great job of holding it!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

That looks awesome! We don't even have flowers (or leaves on the trees) yet and you are picking tomatoes.

Love the quilt top, Billie - so fresh and colorful. Congrats to Mick for his crop. We're nowhere near a harvest here.

I LOVE your quilt top. I bought the book a few months and have started making the blocks. Hope mine turns out as pretty as yours.
Cute video clip. Few actors can do good comedy. Alfonso Ribeiro is a natural.

the quilt looks beautiful do have the book and will certainly have started it before the end of the year I hope. Good to see the garden produce is growing though I think these are from a greenhouse? here it is still very cold, snow hail rain and very little sun!

Lucy said...

Your quilt is beautiful such bright colors. I put it on my desk top I love it.

Aunt 'Reen said...

Congratulations on a fabulous finish!
Your quilt looks beautiful.
Love the little dance of joy video, such a fun way to celebrate!

Your quilt is adorable! We can't plant in N. Minnesota until the end of May, so seeing your veggies gives me hope that warm weather will be here soon!

Carol S. said...

Your quilt turned out so beautiful and amazing...great job on it! Love the fresh tomatoes, too!

Kat Scribner said...

No kidding. Great progress, Billie!! It's looking great. I find applying sashing a drudgery too. All it needs is a lovely border and ready for quilting. How cool is that?!

Jeanne said...

I love your Farm Girl Vintage!!! It's such a fun quilt to make. Hubby's produce looks very good, too.

Great quilt. I'm a misplaced Texan (born in East Texas, raised mainly in central and West Texas).

Janine @ Rainbow Hare said...

Your quilt looks wonderful and your husband looks very cheerful helping you display it. I can't believe you have tomatoes already. They look delicious :)
