Hubby & I went for a drive to Hatch in southern Utah. A small town on old Highway 89. The weather was cloudy but it was a very nice day. We did hit some rain here & there but not too much. Just south of Thompsonville I had to pull over to take a couple of photos. The clouds were hanging on the mountains. So beautiful. Hope everyone is having a great day too.

After pondering about the next 4 quilts on the list I finally decided to begin with an order for a little boy's bed quilt. It will be a simple design as the printed wildlife blocks need to stand out. I am using my 1946 Singer class 66 machine. She sews like a dream. Have to get one of the vintage machines up and running every once in a while.
Love this little 1946 beauty!
Sneak peak at some of the fabric for the next quilt.
Amazing how much I can fit into my small sewing room.
PICTURES OF THE EASTER EGGS THAT THE GRANDKIDS COLORED - HAD TO TAKE PHOTOS BEFORE THEY GOT TOSSED A WEEK AFTER EASTER.
One of my daughters in law found an idea on Pintrest. You add about 1/2 tsp to the coloring & dip the eggs. We found that if you dip the eggs in just plain dye & then into dye with the oil you got amazing results.
I have talented artists for grandkiddos!

Worked all last evening & tonight to finished this quilt. I really like the way it came together. The patter is from the March/April 2015 Fons & Porters Love of Quilting. The quilt was designed by Linda Pumphrey. I did make one change by doubling the size of the outer borders. The quilt is a special order for a young woman's graduation. Hope she likes it. The weather was pretty grey this evening so I had to take the photos in the house. Lighting was not so good. The colors ares actually brighter than they appear.
Size turned out to be 77" x 91"
Love the way the blocks created the pattern.
The name came to me last night. I had something else in mind, but Harmony is what this quilt is.
