A Good Start



Above are the first 2 Dutch Treat blocks I've completed for June.

DAY TWO of my Colorado trip:
I traveled to CO from VA with a group of very special friends.
We had such a GREAT time together! Day 2 was all about site seeing.
(the girls are forming the letter M as seen on the mountain top behind them)

We took a trip to Garden of the Gods state park.

And we stopped at a quilt shop called the Golden Quilt Company.
I purchased a few half yards of shot cotton fabrics to make a Fall quilt.

So what do a bunch of creative quilting friends do after a long day of activities?
We kick off our shoes, gather together and stitch for the evening.

Such a happy way to end a good day!

every quilt tells a story....


  1. We have swans in our neighborhoods. They don't visit the lake behind our house often but we do see them as we go in and out of our development and the surrounding ones. Your block reminds me of them.

  2. Beautiful country, and oh my! that swan looks like a challenge!!

  3. Those blocks are fabulous, the swan is my favorite though both look very very difficult to make.
    Great you have fun days with you friends.

  4. Looks like you had a great time. I need to sew faster to keep up with you on the Dutch Treat.
