Back from vacation and a quilt sneak peek

We are back from our hunting vacation - we didn't get any deer, but we had quite an adventure.  That's what matters, right? Right?!  ::sigh::  We do have blacktail season still open in our area, but I have little faith of the archery hunting around here.  Oh well.  Here are a few pics from our trip.

 Setting up the tent:

We ended up getting snow:

A LOT of snow:

Too much snow in fact, and we pulled out early because the road was slick even with 4 tire chains and in 4-low.  There are some scary spots on the mountain when conditions are like this.  One couple wound up sliding off the road the day before we left and it was a STEEP incline, probably at least a 45 degree incline.  Luckily another hunter had a big pickup with a big winch and he was able to pull them out.  They were SO lucky!

So, onto quilty news.......

I have a project I just finished up for Moda Bake Shop which should be posted anytime now.  Here is a sneak peek!  I stepped out of my comfort zone with the quilting (and binding) on this one and did a sort-of ''orange peel'' type quilting and a wider-than-normal binding with a faux piping/flange.  I'll show you more after the project is posted on MBS :)



  1. I like the orange peel binding! First time I have seen something like that! I missed it on Moda Bake Shop. Congratulations!! By the way on being featured on Moda Bake Shop! That's awesome! Now I want to find these hats you mentioned! Best, Gayle in Bothell, WA

  2. Bopped over here from the Moda blog-now following your adventures! Can't wait to see how you did the binding and browse some more of your projects tonight when I get home from work.
