Calico Barn- fall '08

I have been forgetting to take pictures this season! Here a couple though.  This is one of the table runners I turned in recently.  

This pile of scraps , believe it or not, is garland that I sell.  For some reason this garland sells well at the CB.  Here in Minnesota most everyone you meet will tell you that they "have a cabin up north".  I'm not sure exactly what this "up north" means, but everyone here goes there for some rest and relaxation every chance they get.  This raggy stuff is perfect for the Northwoods lover!  It's not my style, but I've definitely found what sells here!  These are all of my leftover scraps from quilts.  I sew them in whatever order or fashion I grab them with a zig-zag  stitch onto a long piece of jute.  it's takes about 20 minutes to do and is free to make and sells for $12!  The first time I made this I was almost embarrassed to turn it in and the owner bought it before putting it out on the floor and she asked me to make more.  yeah!
