Back to Quilting

Although it has been a cold and snowy day, I felt the need to attend Trail Ridge Quilters this afternoon. I miss these friends and I haven't attended for several weeks - I've been busy with Mom. My Explorer was up to the challenge of plowing through the snowy driveway to the road which, thankfully, had been plowed. It was slow going but I made it with no problems.

We had a good turnout for such a wintry day. One of our tasks was to decide how to proceed with a lovely, large quilt top which had been donated to us several months ago. It depicts a Rocky Mountain scene with mountains, pines, aspens, elk and a river. We'll be sewing sky fabric at the top and adding a couple of borders. We'll have it machine quilted by a local quilter on her long-arm machine. We are working with the medical center foundation board on the best way to make money on this quilt once it's finished ... perhaps a raffle.
