Close-up Photos

Here are a couple of close-up photos of Wayne's travel quilt. The first one is pretty self-explanatory - we are on the summit of Pike's Peak in Colorado, over 14,000' high. Quite the experience.

This next picture is at Arches National Park in Moab, Utah. It is north and south windows. You have to be standing just in the right place to get both of those enormous arches in the same picture. They are huge - you can climb up into them and be totally dwarfed by their size. A great place to visit and hike.

This is a quilt I just made a couple of weeks ago. It is a charity quilt using a bag of scraps I received from our guild which had been donated by many people. We sorted hundreds of strips and scraps into several stacks and since I've been doing a lot of pink quilts lately, I chose the pink one. I love a challenge and this was fun, just sewing pieces together trying to use all the fabrics. I had a few coping strips but ended up with a quilt about 55" x 55" when completed. I only added one little piece to the backing from my stash and had some leftover binding to use also.
