Free Motion Loops & Harvest
Here is my progress on the Free Motion Quilt Along:
The top is my front of the quilt and below is the back.
Some of the loops I found were pretty easy, but some I found very challenging trying to keep them even. Overall loops are pretty fun to do. It's never too late to get started on the quilt along. Check out Christina's blog at http://afewscraps.blogspot.com/
Since I had some open space, I decided to fill it in with other quilting. I glad I've had a little free time to quilt with all the farming going on. Our beans are harvested and the winter wheat is sowed.
We are now combining corn. Every year is a little different on the farm. So far I haven't been asked to help fix the combine, although I did spend a lot of hours helping Dean last year.
I've always wondered how many pounds of dirt go through my washing machine and down our shower drain during harvest. I'm just glad that we have a mud room right where Dean dumps his dirty clothes so dirt is not tracked throughout the house.
I didn't even ask Dean how he got his arms so dirty. Sometimes a farm wife just doesn't even want to know.
Dean is checking the moisture content of the corn--it tested out at 17% which is really good.
We're having a safe harvest so far. Thanks for stopping by to see what we're up to.
Happy Harvest and Happy Quilting!
