Road Trip!


Me, my honey and my sparkly peach shirt took a road trip this week. We had a fabulous time!

First stop, Panguitch - a small Utah town about two hours northeast of here. I love that there is quilting inspiration everywhere I go.

This is a monument to the Pioneer Men who used their quilts to travel across snow to get food from a neighboring town.  It is a touching story and it always makes me cry to think about it.
Read all about it :-)

Close up of the detail of the quilt. I think sculpting a quilt would be way more difficult than piecing one!  :-)

And the infamous Butch Cassidy has made his appearance here too.

After a walk around the cute old town and a fantastic dinner, Clint and I drove to Bryce Canyon.  We have both lived in Utah our whole lives, but have never been to Bryce Canyon National Park.  It was so beautiful - and we didn't get the chance to see the whole thing. These shots were taken as we were driving and I wish we would have had time to stop.  It seriously was so beautiful.
So, naturally next year we plan on taking the kids to see this. We can not wait. Isn't the earth so beautiful? The diversity and scenery everywhere we go is just so amazing.

We arrived at the hotel for a quilt quild trunk show and my cute honey was so helpful bringing in all my quilts. It was kind of funny because the place was packed and we were walking in with a bunch of quilts and I don't know if Clint would admit it, but I think maybe that was a little embarrassing for him. He's a good sport.

Me and my sparkly shirt with my quilts. I can not believe I made all these and I don't even have half of the quilts I have made in this group. I wish I would have kept a list of all the quilts I have made.

And me talking about how I got started quilting..It was a great group of ladies, they treated me so well!
Talking about one of my first quilts, Checkered Flowers - still one of my favorites!

Flight of a Fairy
Me trying to figure out my quilting path, it's been a long time since I quilted this quilt, so it was a challenge remembering what I had done.

Garden Party 
I think the best part of what I do is being able to share it with quilters who appreciate the time and effort that quilts take.  I always get nervous to do presentations, but it is so much fun and the nerves usually leave when I get to meet other quilters.  I really had a fabulous time!  Thanks for letting me share.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
