Life in the Midwest, my gift to my husband for our 25th Anniversary.
He was the country boy who won my heart...I was the city gal. Over the years we've moved to several locations and I have learned to love the things that come with country living. The barn quilts, silos with tile that looks like a quilt, the country churches you see on a drive through the country here in Iowa. The quilt shop that was once a hundred year old home, the windmills scattered through the fields in Ohio. The sunflower and wheat fields from South Dakota, the corn and bean fields from Ohio and Iowa. The pineapple, eagle, star, birds and heart all represent familiar things in quilting and country life. Even though we are back in the city at this point in our life's, the country life has been good to me, mostly because it's been such a great journey with my sweet hubby...
This quilt is in this years AQS Engagement Calendar. This week it is the featured quilt. It all started with the hexies...I love those hexies! It grew to be a bit of a story quilt and will be one of our favorite forever more!
