That is a beautiful photo. Could you make it a larger image with more bits and bytes?

That is snow in the high country. The mountains got a bit of snow last week but it melting.  Pretty soon it will all be white though

I can take a close up of the quilting tomorrow.

quilting on Texas Flag quilt is done - not completely happy with it but I'm trying to limit the time spent on it.  The people I'm making it for are not quilt savvy, the husband just really wants one of my quilts.  And since he's paying me for my time I don't want to get too wound up trying to be perfect.  I tried a new quilting pattern on the red & white part that is supposed to be waves, but for some reason they ended up looking more like a woven pattern.  Oh well.

Oddly enough the seam on the backing ended up almost exactly on the center of the star - I couldn't have gotten that close had I planned it.

I think it looks great. It is always good to try new things.

I like the horizontal wavy lines on the stripes sections, but when I first suggested that, I was thinking of maybe spacing them just a bit farther apart - where they are not really touching, or close to touching.  But .... cool quilt!

Well, the unthinkable has occurred.   The vine applique that I brought on our road trip has now been finished.  Aaarrgghh.

I'm glad that this portion of the project is done, so I can continue with the next section (flowers & leaves).  Unfortunately,  I can't do that portion because I don't have the fabric to work with.  (I have LOTS at home).

Fortunately,  I also brought my hexies to work on.  I hope they last the rest of the trip!!

No pictures now because it's impossible to get one.... maybe at the lunch tomorrow with some of the Phoenix ladies.

perhaps some of the Phoenix ladies could bring you some scraps to use for the flowers and leaves??
