News From Joy and Randy

October 21, 2022

Well, another year and another birthday.  So, thankful to still be having birthdays!

I have enjoyed making the Barn Quilts.  I have about 25 in work to take to the quilt shows next February.  I just keep seeing patterns I want to try but I have got to limit the sizes that I think we can haul.  Plus, customers can haul in their vehicles.  I will not have any 3X3 or 4X4 for the shows.  I have 12X18 with a design and then a Welcome on the bottom.  The rest will be 2X2 designs.  I will have some pictures in the next couple of weeks I can post.

I started this fabric business in September 1992 and my first quilt show was Dallas in 1993.  I am thinking I need to do the Dallas show again in March 2023.  It would be our final quilt show.  I may do some craft shows and farmers markets to sell barn quilts.

Well, we have not had and amount of rain to measure but it did cool off a little this week.  I am starting a new line of quilting Barn Quilts.  I have MDO boards on order and picked up several paint yesterday.  I will be painting mainly 2 X 2 boards for the beginning.  I may do several 4 X 4 later in the year.  I will be getting some painted to be able to bring to the quilt shows in February 2023, I hope.  Also, doing some acrylic pours on glass and canvas.  I have got to work on these before they will be ready to sell.

I have painted several test pieces on scrap wood.  The first two are 2X2 and the two small birds are 12X12.  The Crown of Thorns and Red, White and Blue are about 18X18.

We have cancelled the Wichita KS Show.  I have lots of hand dyed scraps that I was saving for myself but have decided to sell. 

These scraps are cut into approximately 1.5 inches and are 6 or 8 step gradations.  A gallon zip lock bag as full as I can stuff is $20.00.
