Great News!

I have been honored as the Grand Prize Winner with my "Estuary-Oregon Coast" quilt I designed for the Fairfield Processing American Spirit Calendar Contest.  I am very excited about this as I will get a 3 day trip to Houston Quilt Festival this November, as well as batting, calendars and mugs.  Here are some photos of my quilt and it will be exciting to see the finished product.  For all 12 of the winning quilts go to the following link:

While making this quilt I was very impressed with the American Spirit Batting and you should give it a try. Makes the quilt easy to stitch and is lightweight for hanging.

Hi from Oregon

Newport in the fog. Famous Bridge is a dramatic photo
Beautiful reflections on a calm canoe trip at Bear Creek

Went to a Farmeer's Market and a great Mountain Band was playing - I think  this might be my next quilt!

Oregon Rain Chains - unique item I saw that hang on your gutters to give sound to the rain coming off the roof.

Sunset last night in Salem - rain is coming.
After a rain, beautiful clouds.
