Friendship Quilts & Labels

My dear friend Julie sent me this little quilt. I don't think she even had a reason! It is so precious. 
I really do feel blessed to have such a great group of online quilt friends! 
And I've even had the bonus to chat with her on the phone. She is as sweet as ever!!



Labels, labels, labels....
I attached the little label that was sent back with my International Quilt Fest quilts. And then I remembered I had an Oregon documentation quilt label that I had never sewn on! Only waited 10 years to do it!!  That is the one on the left with the eagle label. You can see the front HERE



 Last Sunday hubby and I went for a drive to this lovely place! It is called John Day Painted Hills. 
The temperature was perfect. I forgot how stunning this place is!






Thank you all so much for your kind words about my quilt in the magazine!! If you make the quilt, please be sure to show it to me.


Have a lovely weekend.

  1. What a sweet little quilt! Getting a surprise like that in the mail has to make your day! I will have to do a search to see where those painted hills are located. The colors are inspirational!

  2. It's so sweet and the little lines of dark hand quilting make it even more special. That is beautiful, rugged Western nature - love it - it's just otherworldly.

  5. Your labels are like stamps on a passport, a record of their quilty journey. I love that photo! We loved exploring around John Day and the painted hills when we last were in Oregon. Enjoy the bright blue skies and beautiful colors.

  13. Lori,I followed the link back to your older post. Did you and Barb ever make your eagle samplers? I would be all in for that. I'll have to nudge Barb about that idea too.

  15. O, I remember those painted hills. My husband and I drove there many year's ago in our rental RV. We really needed some gas but driving west without a gas station in sight. With the orange light burning we tried to save as much gas as we could and i think we reached the gas station on our last drops.......
    sweet memories, especially now that traveling is not possible.
    The little quilt you received is darling, great gift!

  16. What scenery - great rock formations.
    I will take this as a reminder to add some labels to a lot of my quilts.
