Smoke and More Quilts

 Riverton, Utah         High 91 Low 63

Last week we had lots of rain and then it cooled off a little and the wind came in from the west again and we are getting a lot of smoke from California fires. The first picture is looking east toward the Wasatch Mountains. From the picture, if I didn't know there were 11,000 foot mountains there, I wouldn't know it.

The mountains to the east are about 10 miles from us.

The next picture is looking west and these mountains are not as high but are only about 5 miles from us,

What Mountains?

We were out yard selling on Friday and we could actually see the smoke coming into the trees about one block away and it smells like smoke every time we open the door or go outside. This is supposed to last until about next Thursday.

Side note: We found about 34 Yards of good quilting material in 3 bolts for $45.00 at one yard sale. We couldn't pass that up.

Meanwhile we have both been busy quilting, Cindy making them and I have been busy quilting. 

The first one is fairly small (for Cindy) and she told me to do an overall pattern, except for the border.

The next one measured 110 inches square. Again she told me to do an overall pattern except the borders. It still took quite a while to quilt because of the size and the borders took some time.

It goes without saying that Cindy really likes pieced Quilts. 

Next I stole this picture from a blog. It is one answer to a Covid Passport.

I hope you are having a great day.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. You sure produce some beautiful quilts. Your stitching is closer together than the lady does for me. Do you sell all of these? You must or your beds would be very thick with quilts. Very nice!

  2. Oh what I would give to be able to make either of those gorgeous quilts. I just don't think I have the patience. HOWEVER ... might you have the pattern for the first one? And of course your quilting is fabulous. I never thought to have them do something different on the border. Just WOW!!
