It's been way to long since I've posted but there are a couple reasons. The first, I had to finish a project that I won't be able to share until September and next it just seemed to take forever to finish my Mt Baker quilt. It's 50" x 60".

I'd been noticing a trend in graphic art which combined geometric shapes and photography. I thought that this could be done in a quilt and found a picture I took of Mt Baker. I had the picture printed at Spoonflower and used fabric from my stash for the rest of the quilt even the backing!

Again, I used my walking foot to quilt this project with 50 weight thread. I'm hoping to branch out with some free motion quilting but after I decided to practice every Monday I broke my darning foot, of course. I now have a replacement and no excuse not to practice.
I also have to share a picture of my daughter, CoraJoan, "helping." She runs around taking pictures with an old camera, mostly pointed the wrong way but she very happy to "help."

Finally, I continue to work on the double wedding ring quilt but I have to do some layout work to finish piecing.
