News From the Studio (and Ranch), Episode 1599

It’s business as usual around here — never a dull moment! Last night, it stormed all night long with horrible lightning and loud thunder. I didn’t get much sleep — I’m a storm chicken! It’s been storming off and on for the last few weeks. When it’s not storming, we have sweltering temps in the […]

Update on the Twins

Posted on April 12, 2017 by prairiemoonquilts in Animals, Prairie Moon Ranch

Some would say, “It’s just a goat!” But My Cowboy and I both firmly believe that if you own livestock, or animals of any kind, then you have an important responsibility to take care of them the best that you can, no matter what — no matter the weather, no matter the problem, no matter […]

Pepper

Two years ago, on April 11, 2015, I went to a goat sale to buy a friend for my goat, Jasper, because, as it is said: “An only goat is a lonely goat”, and I didn’t want Jasper to be lonely. Would you want to disappoint this sweet face? I came home with two friends […]

Quilts, Goats, and Other Stuff

I’ve been chipping away at lots of projects, and a few of them finally got to the completed stage this week. I feel like I’ve been sewing in slow motion, so to have a few things done and off my plate feels pretty good! I finished this flower pillow that I started a couple years […]

News From the Ranch, Episode 1454

It’s Spring! It arrived early this year. I hope this doesn’t mean a sweltering hot summer, because I want to be able to get outside! It’s getting to be riding weather, so My Cowboy made me saddle up a few days ago. I haven’t been wanting to ride as much because I don’t want to […]

Blossom and Pepper

When spring finally rolled around, and My Cowboy and I got Jasper’s new digs all fixed up, we finally had everything ready so that we could get Jasper a girlfriend. I could tell he was lonely, and he was getting a bit belligerent at times. He can be quite lethal with those horns! I thought […]

Coon Hunter Quilt

Coon Hunter Quilt

A couple weeks ago, I finished a custom Coon Hunter wall quilt for Heather. Coon hounds are Heather’s favorite dog. “But,” she says, “ours don’t hunt — they’re just spoiled couch potatoes!” She was afraid to have a quilt made for the bed, because she says the dogs like to “fluff” the covers when nesting, […]

Date Night With My Cowboy

Date Night With My Cowboy

A few weeks ago, before I went to Quilt Market, when I’d been sewing non-stop with very few breaks, My Cowboy decided that I needed a break, and that I should go check the momma cows with him one evening. It was kinda cool out, so I bundled up and went along. It’s calving season, […]

Rocket and Dodger

My Cowboy and I babysat this past weekend. The kind of babysitting that involved mixing up bottles. Big bottles. For big babies. My sister and her husband had to go out of town for the weekend, so we babysat my sister’s two bottle calves, Rocket and Dodger. They rode up to our farm with her […]

What The Hex?

Posted on June 24, 2013 by prairiemoonquilts in 2012 Finished Projects, Animals, Give-Aways, New Patterns
What The Hex?

My next new pattern . . . What The Hex? This pattern was designed to use the new Moda pre-cut hexagons called Honeycombs. But never fear, if you don’t want to use a Honeycomb, the instructions include how to make it without that, just in case you were wanting to maybe possibly use up some […]
