Cheri Friendship Group Quilt Swap

Cheri Payne's love of quilts, prim and friendships,  lives on in her friendship group! 
I recently took part in a quilt swap. Robin Bean was my partner and has done several Humble Quilt swaps too. We like so many of the same things. 

Here is the Uncle Sam quilt she made me. We waited for each other's quilts to arrive so we could open them on the same day. She ended up calling me on messenger! That was fun! Thanks again, Robin.

So stinkin' cute!

It is hard to see the backing but I love it too! Click to make it larger. 

Here is the quilt I sent her. 

There is a little wool applique on cotton, 

I saw so many fancy labels on quilts people were swapping. I apologized for my "plain jane" label!

We made a trip over the mountain this week and the moss was incredible!

I'm not sure what the story is behind this. There is a carving that says Community Kitchen 1936 CCC
It is so cool!

The neighbor dog loves to play with Elsa. He is part Pyrenees and he is huge at 10 months old! 

I have been a bit under the weather- I'm hoping be completely well soon! Ugh!

Have a great weekend!



  1. Lori ¡¡Felicidades!! preciosos edredones, un intercambio maravilloso. Cuidate

  2. Darling quilts, magical woods.

    The muysterious fireplace: looks like WPA sponsored a group called ''something community conservation'' project, that brought young men, unemployed by Depression, from cities to work on the national parks/ in forestry. These groups were provided w sheltered outdoor kitchens, presumeably to perpare food, tho I see no other info on how these people were housed. Since I am not sure where your remnant is located, that was as far as I got w research....

    1. Thank you, Yes, I understand that, but why the "stone oven " in the middle of the forest.

  4. CCC is Civilian Conservation Corps started by Roosevelt in the 1930s.

    1. Right, but I wish I knew the story behind the stone oven.

  5. Both quilts are amazing. I love them both! Hope you beat the bug soon!

    this looks like the same sort of chimney you found.

  7. Hope you get to feeling good. Very cute little quilts. Elsa looks like she is having a great time. Wow that moss is very interesting.
