Phebe, y'all!

Last weekend, my husband and I took a trip to the Ozarks and, of course, I took Phebe along intending to work on her in the evenings. Ha. I just could not bring myself to do it because I didn't like the dark brown centers of the blue flowers in the picture. The brown fabric wanted all the attention so Monday morning, off those petals came. I actually liked the blue/brown contrast but fabrics must play nice with each other! I'll show you what replaced it later this week in my next post.

During our trip, I visited three quilt shops and one wool shop. IF you are ever in the Rogers, Arkansas area, I highly recommend stopping by The Rabbits Lair in their historic downtown district! Their website:  This is my kind of shop - reproductions/Jo Morton on one side of the store and Moderns/Kaffe Fassett on the other. Loved the antique furnishings, cabinets, staircase in the store too. I'm sorry I wasn't able to get pictures for you to see but check out their store in the latest Quilt Sampler Magazine!

I'm sure my flat Kansas accent must have made me stick out a mile as being a tourist. Its easy for me to pick up local accents and I caught myself saying "Y'all" at least once!

Till next time, Mayleen


  1. Ooh, it is looking wonderful. I look forward to seeing your new centers.

  2. The applique is looking just wonderful, I love looking at it, so pretty!!!
    If you think your accent stuck out a mile, can you imagine what mine would do LOL!!! They wouldn't understand me at all.......
