Owl panto

Pat finally caught up making all the baby quilts she owed, and I got them all quilted.  I used an owl panto from Judy Lyon on two of her quilts.  Judy has many complex pantos--the owl panto is medium as far as complexity.

Here is a closeup of the cute owls.

  We took off for a long weekend in Colorado.  Dale, Justin, and the grandboys went to a Sky Sox game.
We also rode the train through the Royal Gorge.  It was quite the scenic trip with an open air car.
The boys are growing up so quickly!

Back to quiltin'...

 The moonrise was beautiful Monday night.  I knew I wouldn't be able to photograph the lunar eclipse, but at least I captured the moon rising.

I got started on my pile-o-tops I was given to quilt.  Judy A. gave me this jelly roll race along with the backing.  

Tove gave me this big top.  She pieced the backing and had binding cut for it as well.

I only had to do my favorite parts:  quilt and bind!  Thanks friends!
