Camera not working

I have been on vacation the last couple of weeks.  My husband and I took an impromptu trip to the Canadian Rockies earlier this month.  Which means that not a lot has been done in regard to Iowa Comfort the past two weeks.

To add insult to injury my camera has decided to be difficult this afternoon.

I have two finished quilts, but the camera won't let me get upload them for some reason.

This coming week is going to be a busy one for me.  I will be working on customer quilts. So not a lot of time for Iowa Comfort quilts.  I am going to try to take inventory on how many quilt tops I have that need to be quilted.

I know this post has been short and sweet.  I will leave you with a totally no quilty picture of me standing on a glacier.

The silly girl from Iowa believed the weather man and did not pack our winter coats for our trip.  It was 25 degrees on that glacier and that sweatshirt was no where close to warm enough!

Have a great week!

Diane's donation

Diane L. has a magic closet that holds all kinds of quilty treasures in it.

Diane is also in the process of moving from a house that she has lived in for MANY years, to a new house.  Gives me chills just to think about having to move.  I have lived in this house for over 30 years.

So as she was sorting through her quilt tops, she ran across one that wasn't going to make the move to the new house with her.  Instead she decided to donate it to us, and allow it to bring cheer to someone who was having a rough go of it.

I really like this quilt top!  It is always amazing to me what I see in a picture versus looking directly at the top.  Here in this picture I see the same block in three different color ways. Two with dark green pedals, three with white and green floral pedals and four with light green pedals.  I find that extremely interesting and fascinating.  I would of never thought about doing something like that and yet I love it.  And yes I know that there are subtle differences in each of the blocks, so no two are identical.

This top reads very feminine to me and is going to be a great donation quilt for the center after I get it quilted.  I think I will spend just a little more time with this one, and maybe quilt feathers on it to make it a little more special than what I normally do with these donations.

Thank you Diane for sharing once again!  That magic closet of yours must go all the way to China.

Have a good week everyone.
