|I'm in love with the way Colorado Springs nestles against the mountains |
with Pike's Peak in the background. That snowcap is gone right now,
having been first muddied and then melted during the nasty fires.
Last Friday I finished my Glacier Star quilt top, but couldn't post for TGIFF because we didn't get photos until Saturday. What a fantastic shot we got, though! Garden of the Gods is a spectacular place to go, and was a very popular place to shoot a quilt. (I wrote about that two posts ago.) This is a Judy Niemeyer pattern, and I used a fabric kit from Quilting by the Bay in Panama City, FL.
If that isn't fun enough, this morning I got the corners mitered and put in the last stitch on my Coral Encounter. I'm in love. :)

That's a square quilt - wind just wouldn't cooperate!
This quilt is made with the Judy Niemeyer Drunkard's Path paper piecing pattern, but I put the colors together myself to reflect the impression it gave me of a patch of brain coral underwater. It turned out gorgeous, and I plan to have a lot of fun with the quilting once we're into a house and I have real sewing space again. (not to mention my batting, which is all in a box deeeeeep inside storage)
