In the evenings I've been hand quilting my groovy grape quilt with bright yellow perle cotton thread and it's been so relaxing to be stitching once again. This will be hanging in my studio above my small looms:
I wanted to make my son, Seb, a new quilt for his bathroom and he had requested one in Boise State colors. I decided to go with a modern Dresden plate quilt which would give me a chance to play with improv piecing once again. I machine quilted this in a spiral pattern.
The other weekend my family and I headed to the mountains to have a picnic lunch and to do some motorcycle riding on the back roads. We decided to retrace the route up to the Thorn Creek Butte fire lookout, which was a blast on our dual sport motorcycles. The views were fantastic and it was just a perfect afternoon to be in the mountains having fun.
Enjoy your day,
