It’s only been about 3 weeks since I last posted but it feels like 3 months! I’ve been so busy w/work since I returned from vacation I’ve had very little time to quilt and even less time to blog and oh how I’ve missed it! The Colorado trip was fantastic! It was my first real vacation in a long while. I spent the majority of the time sewing and made a lot of progress.
- Finished appliqueing the wall hanging
- Finished sewing the 1BW together and added a borders (pics w/borders coming soon)
- Made 2 Origami bags (forgot to take a pic of the other)
- Turned the Hopi Sun Quilt w/o Borders quilt into a tree skirt
- Finished my 1st commissioned quilt
There were 3 of us on this trip and we transported all of this stuff AND brought it ALL up to our room in one trip…w/o the luggage cart! We definitely used the cart when we were leaving though!
We three quilters sat around this small round table and sewed. Since the 1BW is so big, eventually I had to move to the cutting table.
During the Colorado trip we visited w/M’s Aunt in Parshall, CO, which is only about 16 miles from Granby. She owns this charming mountain retreat, Parshall Place, which is just perfect for a weekend getaway or extended stay. This comfy 3 bedroom home is open year round and has a great nightly rate w/no minimum stay required. It wasn’t until after we left I realized I hadn’t taken any pics of the inside =( The next time I travel to the mountains of Colorado it will be to stay at Parshall Place!

On the way back to AZ we spent the night in Moab,Utah where we got dumped on overnight!
Oh! I almost forgot. It was in Moab, UT that I learned what Intarsia is. This little beauty was crafted by M’s father-in-law. It’s so cute!
