Panel Challenge

Here's the start of my smaller Geo Washington panel. 

I started with this idea, which I like but I should ahve done my math first!

I have to unpick and make some adjustments! It will be worth it.

I wanted to share a few final photos of our trip to Wyoming.
We went to a lovely state park near our property for the last few days. 





The Popo Agie River. It was rushing pretty good and lulled us to sleep at night.
Elsa liked the green shade better than the open desert. 

Welcome July!

Have a wonderful weekend!

VA Quilt Museum and A Garden of Hope Exhibit


The Virginia Quilt Museum will have a special exhibit of Buhl Bushong quilts  from September 21-December 23. It is called 
"A Garden of Hope"
I found out this week my quilt was accepted to be included! 

I'd love to be able to attend the reception but I have a prior commitment. Hopefully I'll be able to go at some point while the quilts are hanging. 

My quilt is entirely machine appliqued. 

Sharon Tucker did an amazing job on the quilting!



 I have to get busy and add a hanging sleeve!

I hope you are having a great week!

Quilts and Crafts for Gifts

I'm sure I've shown you some of these before but I'm going to show them again. We stopped at my sisters in Idaho on our way home and I just love seeing some of the things I've made and gifted her with. The lighting was not good when I took these photos as the sun was going down.






I gave this to her last month for her birthday.

I must have given her this when blue and mauve were popular colors! LOL

I've gifted quite a few penny rugs.









I have a pillow just like this at my house!


I don't recall where I got this quilt. I'm assuming it is from the 60's or 70's. The fabric is all cotton and very thin batting.




Thanks for coming along with me this week during my travels! We should be home late today!

Wild Country USA!


We have been in Wyoming staying on our property, trying to figure out a game plan for moving forward to build here.
I got the binding complete on the little flag quilt.
I thought I'd take the opportunity to have a little photo op before we leave!


For the desert at 6000' elevation we have a array of wildflowers. 
And prickly pear cactus.



Most nights we have had amazing sunsets.




We went hiking on a day the weather was not going to be too hot.




Thanks for traveling along with me! Have a wonderful weekend!
