Southern Utah Photo Shoot

I spent some time last week visiting my parents.  While I was there I took some time to have a photo shoot with this quilt I made for my mom.She had a bunch of Blue Bird flour sacks from the mission she served among the Navajo Indians.  She gave them to me to use.  I regifted them to her as this quilt.

    It was fun to take the quilt on a sight seeing tour of beautiful Southern Utah.  The desert can be so beautiful.  Making lovely backdrops for my mom’s quilt.

At the end of the month I will no longer be hosting Moving it Forward.  It seems to have dwindle in interest. Instead I have something new. 

I love scrap quilts.  That’s no secret.  I gain so much inspiration from other’s scrap quilts.  So I thought it would be fun to create a Facebook group to share scrap quilts.  If you also love scrap quilts.  You just might because your here.  If you gain inspiration from seeing others scrap quilts.  If you have scrap quilts you would like to share.  I’d love it if you joined us.  Click the link and request to join.  The more the merrier!

For now.  Link up and show us what your working on.  I’d love to be inspired by your newest project.

    that quilt looks a lot like the type of design I am working on too with Dresden Plates – it got put aside for a little bit but I am back to work on it. I took it to the southwest but every time I tried to take some photos it would be blowing too much

    I'd love to see your quilt. Dresdens are so fun! I have battled wind many times at photo shoots. It's my least favorite weather condition.

    Nothing like taking a quilt out for a fabulous photo shoot. I bet your mom loves this quilt with so many memories included. Sorry to hear you are ending Moving It Forward but I've noticed blogging seems to be lagging … including me — once a week is all I seem to get to. Hope your Facebook adventure is successful.
