Long Promised Quilts

I have been long in posting these finished quilts, but I was waiting for a good day to take the pics.

About 3 weeks ago we went for a hike outside of Gatlinburg on what is known as the Settler's Trail.  Right before we left it came to me that somewhere in the woods might be the perfect place to take some pictures of my newly finished quilts.  And was I ever right.

This is my Going Wonky Quilt.  I made several wonky log cabin blocks and pieced them together with a few frog panels that I found at my LQS.  I then quilted it by simply stitching in the ditch.  It gives it a lovely pattern on the back.

The pictures of the quilts were taken at the Tyson McCarter barn on the trail.   Beautiful setting isn't it?

This is my version of Whoos Woods found in the October 2010 issue of this magazine.

Of course once I got the pics taken of my quilts, we rolled them up, put them in my backpack, and continued on our hike.

But then my thirteen year old managed to get hold of the camera.

But the rest of us were enjoying the beautiful spring day until someone (not me) fell in the creek as we were crossing. 

 I guess mountain springs in late February are somewhat chilly.  So our outing ended.
