The slap of the screendoor...

This is an idea I'm working on for a farm-related quilt block swap-I'm
calling it..." screen door"- it's a pieced screen door, laid over a printed fabric farm scene. The screen door actually has a tear in it-it's made of Italian Organdy-
I had the idea very late at night!!!!!
Obviously it led to the "OPEN WINDOW" block!!! I'm probably having way too much fun with this- somebody STOP me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it. I can hear the door slapping now. It even looks like my screen door....hole and all.

Autumn, these blocks are nothing short of fabulous..and young lady (yes, I said YOUNG!!) seeing how we are only 6 months apart in age..heheheh, YOU ARE an Artist...I know it's hard for us to compliment ourselves but I've learned that it's OK to do that!..LOL And Lord knows I'm my worst critic! I'm artistic and always have been and so are you....so guess what? That makes us an Artist in our own right, in our own hearts.

I'm always fascinated by your ideas. :0)

Great blocks, Autumn, the only thing cuter at first glance is the photos of your granddaughter and her pal, that one of them investigating outdoors is just so sweet.

I guess I'm going to have to rent some grandchildren.

Just woke up from a power nap and now I'm inspired to start my farm themed quilt blocks....


Autumn said...

Thanks girls!
Karin -I agree- those two Farmgilrs are the cutest!!!! I wish you could all have been here LISTENING to them! It was hilarious!!!!!
Abby was "so knowledgeable about chickens" in her big old 2 year old life!!!!
Great fun indeed!!!!
