Weekend is Over

My weekend began by finishing up a wedding quilt for my friends Stephanie and Brandt. Then we spent a good deal of Saturday at their wedding reception. The quilt is throw sized, all cotton, sort of free-formed. The color palette for the quilt was inspired by Stephanie’s lovely jewelry.

Then Sunday Dan and I went with a couple of our friends on a hike, to a lake, up in the Cascades. It was about an hour drive from Seattle and a 2.5 hour hike total. We saw a lot of nurse trees and some snow pack. It was kind of funny to think that it’s August, 80 degrees out, and we’re walking around on snow.

In this last image there is a young tree growing off of the upper nodule on the old tree. Also the young tree is possibly a different type of tree than the older one.

    Thanks Tanya! The bedspread, under the quilt, that you see in that first picture was a pattern from “The Modern Quilt Workshop”. Although now I mostly just make up my own patterns – mostly inspired by the Gee’s Bend quilters.
