Quilt Show and The Awful Four Letter Word

Riverton, Utah        High 70 Low 46

Today was a lot more pleasant with a high of only 70. This afternoon it got windy and cool. Last night we had some rain and we can see snow on the tops of the mountains by us. I was ready for some cooler days, but I’m not ready for the awful four letter word. Why aren’t we in Yuma? Because it’s still way too hot there. I looked and the prediction is still for 106 degrees.

Cindy got some pictures of me installing a faucet on our secondary water system so she wouldn’t have to use culinary water for the yard. We’ve been in our home for 15 years and why install the faucet now, you might ask. It was because the city turned off the secondary water for 2 weeks and things got mighty dry. I haven’t seen the water bill yet, but using culinary water instead of secondary will probably be kind of high.

Cindy also took some pictures of two of the quilts we finished. The first is called Oh My Gosh and the blocks start out as one inch strips, and then are made into 2 inch squares, some with 9 patches. The picture with the quarter isn’t very clear, but you can get the idea of how small the pieces are.

This is a king size quilt in Christmas colors.
The second quilt was a kit we picked up in Alaska and has what looks like a scene from Alaska. I used a lot of different colors quilting it with different patterns for each section.

I played with the log cabins, even quilting a door knob on it.
Today we drove to the Springville Art Museum to see a quilt show they had there. There were a lot of nice quilts and Cindy took lots of pictures. I put some of the ones I liked best on this post.

This quilt was made in memory of a little girl that died using her clothes for the blocks.

I think this was best in show.

This next quilt is for all RVers.
This movable water feature is in the lobby of the Art Museum.

Thanks for visiting.
