Took a picture near my neighborhood this fall of one of the many hot air balloons that grace the skies in our valley on a regular basis. I have GOT to make a quilt like this!! Mt. Timpanogos in the background, sunflowers in the foreground... and a beautiful quilt in the sky.

I think about, dream about, write about, design, piece, quilt, help my girls quilt, can't wait to get up in the morning to quilt, and pretty much live quilting every day. Life is a patchwork anyway, right??! I've even dreamed about making a dessert with half of it topped with pecans, and half topped with cashews, cut into squares, then triangles, then laid out like my Carpenter's Star quilt to serve... Maybe I'll try that for my next guild party! I love it when two of my passions collide!

Where do you see quilts??

I see them just about everywhere. I have pictures of tile floors and bathroom walls that I find interesting.

That would make a beautiful quilt-I hope you make one and show us pics.

I was watching the news the other night and the newscaster had on a purple tie--all I could think was "I need that exact color to finish my wallhanging".

Perfect for a quilt! The balloon shows how the pieces should be.
