Our first Quilting experience

Ruthanne, Grandma Victoria and I went to Marg McCuloch's house to learn how to use "Lenny" her long arm quilting machine. She walked us through it and let myself and Victoria quilt one quilt each. I started with the little baby quilt for Jameson. Then it was Victoria's turn.
She is concentrating really hard. It's scary at first.
She is continuing the pattern . . .
Here is the pattern.
Removing the quilt.
Tada! It is all quilted.

This is the baby quilt all quilted. Now for the binding . . .

Photography Challenge #45 - Leaf

I love the quote that Kristi chose for this challenge an autumn leaves. I believe that we can always find beauty in the things around us . . . maybe even garbage, that may be a stretch. Kristi and Melissa have done a fantastic job of their leaf pictures.
We don't have many beautiful leaves now There have been heavy winds and they tend to strip the trees of their leaves. This is what I was able to find at our Park by the Old Man River today. We rarely see reds since we are in the west where few true maple trees can grow. This was my favorite find.
This is the river. I love the reflected color in the river. Too bad the winds took a lot of it away.

Photographic Challenge #44 - Feet

This fun challenge by Kristi and Melissa was about feet. Here is my view of feet of my grand daughter on a trampoline! I had to go to sports mode to catch these little feet in action. They are dirty with summer barefoot wandering! So fun! You should have seen the face . . . priceless.

Baby Quilt for Jameson

We made another baby quilt top today. It will be for Jameson because it is much more of a boy's quilt than the first one. What do you think?
