"I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota but my blog is badlandsquilts because I grew up on a farm in southwestern North Dakota near the Badlands. I'm attaching two photos that were taken this year over the 4th of July weekend... the first shows my parents farm from quite a distance away and the second photo was taken in one of fields with wildflower in the foreground and the Rainy Buttes (Second highest buttes in ND) in the background. Both pictures I think are very accurate in capturing the peaceful beauty of this very rural area."
Karen's first selvage creation was a big label for this quilt (above). She added selvages to some leftover blocks, writing her name and the date along the bottom. Clever.
The beautiful landscapes above are near the Badlands. To see the appropriately named Badlands, visit Karen's blog at: http://www.badlandsquilts.blogspot.com/ It's scenic, but really bad if you're traveling cross-country on foot!
