On every Tuesday, except the first of each month when I have my Quilty Hug Sew In, I help my friend out by taking her special needs daughter to her job and pick her up. While she is at work I baste quilts or visit my grandma. Depends on whether I have tops that need basting or not.
As I mentioned on Monday I’m working my way through a giant pile of basted quilts. So even if I had a top to baste, I’m running short on pins. So Tuesday was a visit grandma day. On my way I stop to pick her up a chocolate mousse from Kneaders. Grandma is a big chocolate fan. I used to take her out but she has gotten less steady on her feet and I worry about a fall. I now bring treats to her.
I also needed to drop off some patterns to a couple of area quilt shops. Since grandma likes to sleep in and the quilt shops didn’t open until 10 I took a little field trip with my recently quilted maverick star, baby quilt. At the mouth of Ogden Canyon is the Timbermine Restaurant. It’s right across from My Heritage Fabrics, where I needed to drop off patterns. They have some pretty cool, old farm equipment. So I stopped and had a little photo shoot. Being at the mouth of the canyon it was pretty windy but I managed a few shots.
Just down the road is the George S Eccles Dinosaur park. I used to bring my boys here when they were little. They loved it.
The kind receptionist let me in for free so I could take pictures with the dinosaurs. It brought back happy memories. I don’t know how great the pictures turned out.
But I think the dinosaurs enjoyed the quilt. These cold blooded creatures seldom get to enjoy something soft and cuddly.
I had a nice visit with Grandma. She loved her chocolate mousse.
The stars just pop from that grey and the Baptist fan pattern – what a great fit! Wonderful.
Lovely "traveling" quilt–that mousse sounds yummy hugs, Julierose
Great photo shoot. The baptist fan is a perfect quilt pattern for the stars.
I love the quilt!
It sounds like you are using your time wisely. Love seeing the dinos and quilts.
I just can't tell you how much I love that quilt. Your photo shoot is great.
You know how to please. . . those chocolate mousse cakes are wonderful!
I really like your Maverick Star quilt and the first photo shows the quilting very well. Is this one hand quilted?
