Put a quilt on it…

September 29th, 2011

When the Portland Modern Quilt Guild held our meeting slash picnic in Laurelhurst Park (that’s us, in the grove - behind the hula-hoopers), my friend Elizabeth asked me if I’d like to come along while she took photos of her quilt in the park.  Heck, yes!

Fun watching Elizabeth try to keep the falling pine needles off her quilt. Trees vs Elizabeth - final score: 154 to 3.

The fruits of Elizabeth labors can be found here.  And what Elizabeth indulged me in during her shoot and the rest of this story - can be found on my guest post on WhipUp.net today!

    I had to read your post on Whipup, which of course led me to your Pinterest boards. As usual, the eye candy was delicious. And I got a good chuckle out of the score between Elizabeth and the pine needles. E’s quilt is yummy, too. Thanks for the lovely tour.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
