I haven’t been reading as much, not crazy about my currents reads, but I’ve started a new quilt. If you’ve seen some of my other projects, you might be wondering what all the quilts are for. Some (the Christmas ones) were presents. But the denim quilts are for a charity project. I’m hoping to donate them to a homeless shelter. So far I only have one finished quilt and 5 lap sized quilts. I really like this one. So far it’s turning out pretty nice.
This one is for my son and daughter in law. Tiny cardinals on the back.
My husband and I went out on Saturday. First we had lunch at a Dominican restaurant we hadn’t tried before, and then we went to the Springville Art Museum. Even better, they were having their annual Quilt Show!
Check out all the individual feathers on this owl! It reminded me of Hedwig, of course. Just amazing detail.
Being a Utahn, I loved this quilt of the canyon. The texture is incredible, and the quilter made her own pattern.
This quilt had all these little medallions on it, each one different, and each only about 4″ across. The quilt said every piece was individually cut.
Of course, we saw some art too.
I love the bright colors and the happy feeling of this painting.

Here’s the other thing I’ve been working on besides reading – sewing! I’m still working on quilts for the shelter, but I’ve also been working on soft toys. This picture is of my sewing machine table when my machine was in the shop. I took up crochet instead. As you can tell, I should have stuck to sewing! I like the birds though. The fish is a different story.
