If I Had a Hammer...
We have King Edward the First to thank for the hammer throw being an Olympic event. Back in the 1200’s, the king of England decreed that Scotsman couldn’t own weapons, so they began training to fight with ordinary objects. Now athletes throw the 16-pound weight just for fun. Speaking of fun (which I hear even King Edward would have approved) don’t forget to get in on this year’s Golden Star Games! Just spend $25 before tax and shipping and we’ll send you a Golden Star scratch card* guaranteed to win one of thousands of amazing prizes!
Scottish farmer and all-around super-strong guy Tom Nicolson was a nearly unbeatable hammer thrower. He won the Scottish title for nineteen years in a row, beginning when he was twenty-three. Tom made it to the Olympics in 1908 where he placed fourth, but when he qualified for the Olympics again in 1920 at age forty-one, something came up. The ewes on his farm were having their lambs, and he just couldn’t leave them, even for the Olympics! He was able to get away in time for the finals, which normally a tardy athlete wouldn’t be allowed to participate in. But owing to his reputation and many years of champion hammer-throwing, they let him compete. Tom placed sixth, but to the family (and sheep) he looked after, I imagine Tom was number one.
Like Tom, today’s deal is a humble stunner, straight from the barn. This line is so gorgeous, it’s basically hollering at me: “I’m the line for you!” I’m just nuts for the colors and the mix of florals and geometric prints. What should I use it for? A Fourpatch Lattice Quilt? Or a Fourpatch Stars Quilt? Decisions, decisions!
This Blue Barn Prints Layer Cake contains 42 10" squares of fabric. Each print is duplicated.
