I never tire of beautiful sunrises here.  I have so many pictures that I usually just forgo bundling up to step outside and take another picture, and instead just watch the unfolding color displays.

I continue to quilt, and besides these two I finished for Pat, I have gotten a few done for Dr. Kaufman.  

Some time ago, I made a barn quilt at the request of a blogger friend for her book, Build a Barn.  The barn, my attempt at translating the Round Barn at Ojo Caliente into fabric finally came back to me, so much better after being quilted by Chris Ballard.  I have finally hung it in my home. 

I used a panel for the backing on this quilt, and quilted it with a truck panto from Dave Hudson.  Pat put together the top from swapped blocks.  It's nice to have one that works for boys.

She also put this more feminine top from swapped blocks.  

Another clouds and sky picture.  Today I can't see the mountains for all the dirt blowing around.

Your sunrise pictures are beautiful. Photos never quite capture the beauty though, do they? I like your header photo, it's hauntingly beautiful.

Oh, Hilda -- how wonderful your barn looks hanging there! Happy to find you blogging, quilting, gathering, and sharing your gorgeous sky photos again. Many hugs to you.
