Traveling through Winterset—

Nena Reisner and her husband were traveling through and detoured a bit to Winterset on their way from Utah to northern Iowa for a family reunion.  She just had to pack a few of her quilts to show us.

The quilt with airplanes is paper pieced and for her pilot husband.

Thanks for sharing Nena!

Happy quilting,

Diane T, Assistant Editor

    After 60 years of life I just started wearing flip flops and I LOVE them. So I really love love love the flip flop quilt. Where have these little diddies been all my life??

      Sharon, that is so funny. I’m nearly fifty and have enjoyed flip-flops all my life. You must not be from the South, where they are seen year-round… even in freezing temps. (smiles and wriggles toes in flip-flops) I like the quilt, too; it is cheery and fun.

    not sure where she got her plane pattern, but http://www.thimble-art.com has a paper-pieced 3-dimensional plane pattern.

    My grand daughter made the flip flop one on a pillow case for the county 4-H fair and got grandchampion on it and she is only 11, they said that it was a neat ideal and she used some cow print that had red, black and white, so that is what we used for the accent part of the pillow case, I had made a shorts on that is like the flip flop and it was real cute also.
    There was a bikine one also but wasn’t able to get it.

    I love, love, love the flower quilt! Could anyone tell me where I could find a pattern or maybe just a pattern of a block that I could use?
