Quilts For The Summer (Glenrock, WY)

We had a small group of American Goldfinches stop by yesterday.  I will be able to do a little bird watching here.  I watched two Red-tailed hawks chase off a Bald Eagle down by the river.  It was one of those moments when I wish I had my camera.  Then again, it happened so fast, I'm not sure I would have been able to get a good shot of the fight.
On a different day, there were three Bald Eagles doing large slow circles over the campground, up the river, and over the town.  They did this several times while I was outside with the cats.  You can bet I kept my eye on them when they were over the campground.

Doesn't this dried out Yucca pod have some interesting texture?  I was tempted to pick a few, but what would I do with them?  I decided a photo was a better idea.  Best to leave them alone and let Mother Nature do her thing.  Besides, the cats would have chewed them to pieces.
On The Cutting Board
I took a break from making Happy Campers since the interest in them has slowed down.  Time to get these quilts in my shop.
Scrappy Sunbonnet Babies
This time, I decided to pre-wash all my finished lap quilts.  All the photos are after being washed.
Jungle Stars
I thought washing all the quilts might help anyone who is worrying about how well my quilts will hold up to washing.  Colors did not run.  My applique's and sewing did not fall apart.  My quilts are made to be used.
 Now that the weather is starting to get sunny with less wind, I got some good photos of all of them.
Summer Siesta
 I changed the names on some of the quilts with the hope that it will attract more views in Etsy.
Spring Fantasy
So, I have six quilts listed my Etsy shop.
The Penguin's Snowball Dance
Oh!...I almost forgot....and one new wall hanging...
Bad Kitty's Welcome
Dan is working some long hours helping out the owner meet his deadline.  They are trying to get four full hook-up sites in by mid-June.  In the meantime, I am off until Friday...soooooo, I think I'll get out my scrap bags and get a little sewing done.
Happy Quilting!


  1. Welcome to Wyoming! I hope you enjoy your summer. I live in Cody, which is north of you, towards Yellowstone. I love reading your blog, especially when I see familiar places!

    1. Thank you Sophie! We are enjoying our stay so far. We have been in your area. We love visiting Yellowstone. Gorgeous country!

  2. Such beautiful nature where you live, Sandy! Your quilts are gorgeous, as always :)

    1. Thanks Melissa! This area has been a lot of fun to explore.

  3. Great place to display your quilts. I think washing is a great test for baby quilts because they do get washed a lot.

  4. I love the quilts you made, Sandy! And your bird photos are gorgeous! Hope you got to do some more sewing on your day(s) off.

  5. Gorgeous!! Between planting the garden, homeschooling, and college, I haven't had time to do any quilting!! I do have some projects pulled out for me to work on this summer. I hope to start them up next week after I get through this hump in this class. I have a paper due this weekend I haven't started writing yet. I just cannot stand reading this guy. I'll be glad when its over! hehe Enjoy!


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
