Back From Vacay, Plus Some UFOs

We are just back from a super fun road trip across the USA. I managed to collect 7 Row By Row Experience patterns, and will be putting them together into a wallhanging. Here's the row from The Quilt Shop, in Chamberlain, SD, where my DH's grandfather homesteaded around 1900:

One of my favorite places to visit is Yellowstone National Park. My grandparents visited there when I was young and showed me a photo of the Morning Glory Pool. This was my third time to see it. It is no longer blue, as people have thrown things into it and that has plugged it up, therefore the colors have changed. But I still love the colors:

We drove through Yosemite again, as DH's hometown is about an hour away. Here's the Half Dome:

This was our first time to stop at Scott's Bluff National Monument, in western Nebraska, along the Oregon Trail. Super interesting history, hiking trails and rock formations:

I'm in an online UFO group--we post our UFOs every quarter and motivate each other to finish them up. Last quarter I finished 4 of the 6  UFOs I listed. I have 9 this time around.

The first is my Flirty quilt--it needs to be quilted, labeled and bound:

Second is a baby quilt I am making from the leftovers of the previous quilt. I'm making the background white in this one:

Third is the friendship blocks I received from the quilters in my small group. My month was May, and I asked for this plus block pattern:

Fourth is a patriot quilt, using these strips we swapped at our guild:

Fifth is a Patience block quilt made from Japanese taupe fabrics. The backing will be a taupe Minkee:

Sixth is this quilt top that needs the applique vine and leaf border:

Seventh is a quilt that I took in a class with Sioux Falls Quilter's Guild three years ago. I intend on changing the darker charm squares to brighter charms:

Number eight is my Lego quilt blocks--I'd like to make at least 6 more blocks this quarter:

And number nine is a Judy Neimeyer Prismatic Star quilt I started in a class last November:

Here we go!

Grace and peace.


  1. I have a picture of half dome from about that viewpoint. Good memories! Can't wait to see your progress on all your other projects.

    1. Don't you love driving through Yosemite?! So much to see.

      I'm starting my 2016 Row By Row now, so the UFOs will have to wait--too much fun!

      Thanks, Kathy!
