Instead of Quilting

I've been doing a lot of this!!  But up here, you make hay while the sun shines...and has it ever been shining!!

View from the turn out at the top of Homer hill.  This was last week.
We started toward Seward today, but could really smell rain at Sunrise, so turned back into the sunshine.  (We are fair weather bikers!!)

12th Finish

for this year.  But I must confess, they have not all been quilts.  There have been placemat sets with napkins (I counted the whole set as one, not eight!!!) and tote bags included in the count, but, hey!, they ARE a finish. (And quilted--the placemats were customed, too!)

This wallhanging is the pattern "Oh Henry" and used a panel--very easy. I quilted it with Parrot Highlights thread from Superior in the top and a purple bottomline in the bobbin.  The binding was done in the car to and from Anchorage--in between photos and admiring the scenery!

Road trip

Made a quick trip to Anchorage to pick up a scroll saw DH scored on Craig's list--and had lunch with the DIL.  The weather was great til we hit town--sorry the pics are thru the car window while moving, but you get the idea!!

Quilt for Uncle Wayne

is done--just needs to be put in the washer.

Whenever I gave  a quilt to a new baby at church he'd ask where his was, so here it is!!  I decided to quilt it using Omni thread by Superior and the panto " Chantilly Lace"
