Next Up

Now that my son's Super Star quilt top is finished, it's time to move on to the Shoo Fly blocks.

Before I left home, I used my AccuQuilt Go to cut more triangles in solids and prints.....can you imagine me trying to put the Go in my suitcase?

Do you see the flowers in my husband's hat?  Handy place to put flowers given by daughter.
We went on a serious hike yesterday, so I thought I was free to relax and sew today.....I was wrong.  Since my husband can only stay in Montana a little while, he takes his playtime seriously ;-)  So, we did an easy, fun hike to popular Ousel Falls.

I did manage to squeeze in some sewing time and chain pieced the pairs of triangles to make the HSTs for the shoo fly blocks.  I didn't bother counting them, but the chain was pretty long!

It doesn't appear that I'll have a huge block of time to finish this quilt top all in one sitting, but I'm satisfied with breaking down the tasks and accomplishing each step at a between hiking and bear sightings;-)

Another day, another bear

Have an amazing day!!!


  1. I hope you were using your zoom on that bear! Yikes!

  2. It sounds like you are having an awesome time on your trip. It's always great to be organized. It helps things go much smoother.

  3. oh wow - you have been so productive! all I have been doing on vaca is reading and sleeping and eating, and then more of the same! glad you are having a good time!

  4. I can't wait to hear more about Montana. And "wow" on that bear sighting. We have only heard the bears at our rental cabins in the High Sierras.
