(and red all over)
Welcome to the Black and White Blog Hop!
Our hostess, Carla of Creatin’ in the Sticks, has quite a line up of participating blogs this week. You’ll find the list below as I know you’ll want to check them all out. Thanks, Carla, for putting this together.
Howdy, pardner! Thank you for stopping by and visiting. I appreciate new followers (check out my sidebar to follow by email, Bloglovin, or WordPress).
I spend the winters in sunny Arizona. My quilting group here is very active. However, I made it even more active this winter when I opened my mouth and out came the words, “Who would like to help me make some boots?”
The quilting group in my village has proposed building a Fiber Arts Center and is now in the fundraising stage. Our first fundraiser is coming up next week, An Old Fashioned Country Hoedown, complete with country music, line dancing, and a real auctioneer who will be auctioning pies and quilts.
Little did I know that request would find me covered in boot blocks. I secured some much needed help for this project. We received enough boots for two quilts, a table runner, and 12 placemats. The quilt tops are finished and awaiting quilting on our longarm this week.
I’d show you pictures of them all, but that would be too much color for this black and white day so they’ll have to wait for another time.
Kick up your heels and shimmy on over to these participating bloggers this week

What I Learned Today:
- Sewing is hard work. It consumed most of my time during the past two weeks.
- I couldn’t have done this project without the help of many friends from my quilting group.
- I am not done yet. I still have another quilt, a brick quilt that I also requested help with, lying on my living room floor that needs to be finished by Tuesday so it can be quilted and the binding sewn on before the Hoedown begins.
- Lenore is a very good seamstress. Thanks for participating in the boot challenge and making this beautiful block.
Question: Do you wear boots? I’ve never owned a pair of cowboy/cowgirl boots but I have ridden horses, probably wearing flip flops because that’s what teenagers and young adults did back then.
Thanks for stopping by and do come again.
