Jo's Country Junction

Jo Kramer and oldest daughter, Kelli Kramer, spend many weekends together while the men in their lives are busy farming. During these weekend hang out sessions, they are busy creating quilts, cooking, visiting quilt shops, canning, crafting, gardening and laughing at the antics of their beagle dogs, Ruby and Puppycat.

During one of their weekend play dates, the two started creating quilts together, with Jo doing much of the design work and Kelli writing patterns. 

We are avid bloggers who add regular new blog posts daily-and even twice a day.  We often features quilting projects,  tutorials, book reviews, house remodeling and recipes.  You can read about the adventures of Jo, her hubby Roger and all five of kids on Jo's blog,
