In touch with my redneck roots...

Howdy!  Let's face it...we can't outrun our roots, our up-bringing, our heritage.  It's a part of us no matter how far away from home we roam.  Check out my redneck clothesline.
Some has been stitched, some is waiting to be stitched.  It's going to be in the front yard of my hick house, which I have added to "All Around the Town," a vintage BOM by Sue Garmon.  I've adapted one of the last blocks to reflect my Alabama roots, complete with some scrabbly pine trees.  I'm sure Sue is much too fine a person to stoop to such depths of design, so I just had to! 

Many people have asked about this pattern (without my perverse changes and additions, of course).  It was a BOM offered by Quakertown Quilts in Houston, TX a few years ago.  It is still commercially available from their site here in a set for $60.00.  Due to the interest, I've decided to do a give-away of the pattern when I finish with it in February (thanks for the idea, Meredith!).  So stay tuned!

There is still more work to do on this block (like embroider that poor chicken some legs), but I just had to share the progress.  Now, certainly I did not grow up with my undies flappin' and dryin' in the breeze in the front yard of our house and we had indoor plumbing (and no old, broken-down pickup truck on blocks in the front yard), but I have to admit that you do see this from time to time when driving through the lovely state of Alabama.  To be fair, I've seen this sort of thing in every state I've driven through in this country, including Michigan, where I reside now.  Redneck is not just a southern affliction.

I looked up redneck in the dictionary.  Most definitions use words like narrow, reactionary, rural, bigoted, working class, conservative, unsophisticated, prejudiced, white, uneducated and farm laborer.  Jeff Foxworthy certainly elevated (?) rednecks with his "You know you're a redneck if..." jokes (...if you go to a family reunion looking for a date...).  Redneck, more literally, refers to someone repeatedly laboring in the hot sun without proper sunscreen and/or neck coverage.

I've always associated rednecks with a certain swagger, a good-ole-boy (or girl!) with a beer in one hand, chewing on a toothpick, and a Marlboro hanging from the bottom lip.  They are usually good-natured and would give you the undershirt off their back if you needed it.  It is in that spirit that I decided a redneck house needed to be settled right next to one of the other blocks I'm working on...this nice, neat, pious little church.  Ooooo...I bet the tongues will be wagging after Sunday services ("just look at the state of that house" and "well, I never..."), all in good fun with a sense of community and brotherly love, of course.  Just like I heard once, "if you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me..."

This block still needs a few things and definitely some sheep in the neighboring pastures (and a cross on the steeple!).  Maybe the church needs one of those church signs with a clever saying or name of the upcoming sermon on it (any ideas??).

I am guest posting again on Stash Manicure today, Saturday, January 22.  Check it out!  I did a purge of some of my quilting pattern files and came up with the following five unused patterns.  I'm also including a short stack of new Halverson light chocolate fat quarters, a bottle of Roxanne's Glue Baste (which is what I use instead of pins in my applique...dot-dot-not-a-lot!), and a tube of my favorite Jeanna Kimball straw needles (thanks for turning me on to these, MaryLiz!). 






Leave a comment here at Fabric Therapy or on my Saturday post at Stash Management before 9:00 AM, Monday, January 24 to be entered in the drawing.  These patterns are lovely and you may find them to be just what you needed.  

In stitches,
Teresa   :o)

  1. Love the redneck house. I'm 60, and I'm one of a very few folks I know that actually had an outhouse when I was little. I remember when they built our inside bathroom. And I was born on the kitchen table at our house.

  2. I just love these 'people' patterns, how lovely they would be to add to my collection. A collection that I use! I just find them all part of heritage primative art and just love them to death. Who ever wins these wins a true treasure. WIlma - I remember the old outhouse and was born in my greatgrandie's house - she was a mid-wife.

  3. Hi Therese!
    I come from Samm's blog to know your blog.
    Wonderful work for the block 9 and its senior excelent fabric ....
    And, as it is garbage for a quilter, a jewel for another ...
    I've just one year with this wonderful technique that has caught me.
    Greetings from Tandil, Argentina.

    Hola Teresa!!!!
    Vengo desde el blog de Samm a conocer su blog.
    Maravilloso trabajo para el bloque 9 y excelente su depósto de tela....
    Y como dice lo que es basura para un quilter, joya para otro...
    Llevo apenas un año con esta maravillosa técnica que me ha atrapado.
    Un saludo desde Tandil, Argentina.

  14. You did a great job on this block.. So creative! You really nailed the rural area that has always been home to me, including the out house. My Grandfather never had running water in his house. Of course there was an outhouse, but he didn't even have the moon on the door..just the plain stripped down version. Today I start saving my quilting allowance for "All Around The Town"! Gotta have this one.

  15. I love the fabrics and patterns you have purged, my goodness you have a well organized amount of "stuff"
    The Redneck quilt is wonderful. I enjoyed your posting on SM and now I am going to sign up for your blog.

  17. would love to be a part of this give away. Here in Arkansas we see clothes out on the line to dry too - one place has a row of jeans and overalls every week - don't see the underwear maybe it is hidden on the other side of the jeans :)
    Do you needle turn all of your applique like I do or is some of the small bits fused?

  21. Jumping on over from Stash Manicure. :o) These patterns are neat! I, of course, would love the fabric as well... a girl can never have too much! Earth tones are great and I would love to add this to my color pallet. Thanks for the chance!

  22. Just coming over from Stash Manicure, how did I not find your blog sooner. A question for you if I may, I noticed on your post from Stash that there is a scarecrow pattern in your stash, can you tell me where that is from? what book or company? My sister and I have been looking for that pattern for a while now.
    Thanks and love the picture of your cat in the hoop.

  23. Love the personal touches you've added to your town! Maybe the church sign should say "Judge not that ye be not judged" as a reminder to the churchgoers not to judge the rednecks! :0)

  24. Love the redneck house! How cute!! I have already left a comment at Madame Samm's - light chocolate fat quarters...yummy!!

  34. The touches you've been adding really make the quilt, I think you should use one of those church bloopers sentences for your sign if you add one. I just can't think of any specifics right now. Sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow, your applique is amazing. I'm currently struggling with a piece I designed myself, but seeing yours has inspired me to get back to it.

  43. I love your quilting style, so fun and orginal.
    I also liked your storage ideas, I have the same shelves and that is what I need to do. I don't have as much fabric, but I do have a bit of wool and my daughter might move back, so I need to clean out the spare room again.

  58. I love that church you're working on... you have way more patience than I do creating things such as that.

    I like the idea of a cross on the steeple. Bell in the steeple? Wreath on the door?

  59. I hope to be an organized as you some day! I love the light chocolate fabrics especially, and hope you draw my name. I've just purged some old patterns to my little guild to sell in the boutique.

  89. We had an outhouse not that long ago, I put in a stained glass window, a garden one could contemplate on surrounded by a fence, and it also had a pipe vent system so there were no smells.

  96. Oh how I can relate to the purging. I've been trying to do some of that myself. The things we keep!! I have enough recipes to cook for the next 300 years, and yet I make the same things over and over or go online when I need something new. Thanks for showing me I'm not alone.

  98. I recently moved and also had to go through my patterns, magazines and stuff. It was scary, I've been collecting since the 70's. But it was great to pass stuff on to others and reacquaint myself with my own stash. Sometimes it felt like Christmas. Thanks for sharing your story.

  100. I read your contribution on Stash Management. I think you and I must be related by the organizing gene! I've not quilted as long as you, and when I started eight years ago, the computer was available. I store all sorts of pictures of quilts, patterns, quilts without patterns, tips, gifts, etc. on my computer.

    I still have huge binders of tear-outs from magazines. My dream would be to scan them all and be done with paper, but the amount of time that takes is daunting. And I'd rather quilt than scan!

    Thanks for offering some really cute patterns. It would be fun to have them.

  101. Winning something from you would be a treat!
    I like your ideas for glue dotting the applique.

  102. That was a great post on Stash Manicure. Loved the idea that looking through old patterns etc is like shopping without spending a cent!I would need to live to be 200 years old at least to make all those ideas I have in my folders. Thanks for offering that giveaway.
