I have been busy quilting my E Pluribus Unum wall hanging. I'll try to get it bound soon.
Close up of the quilting - Cross hatching inside the panel and feathers all over the bow tie blocks.
I also finished a top that I started 2 years ago when Barrister's Block had a Quilt-A-Long. I made 43 blocks then, but didn't finish it. Now, she is having another Bullseye Quilt-A-Long and I got my top done.
There's a "Snowflakes and Stitches Shop Hop" going on although I haven't seen any snowflakes lately. A friend and I went to one shop yesterday - The Quilted Hill in Yamhill, OR. This shop had gone out of business a few years ago, but recently has reopened and it is out in the beautiful countryside of Western Oregon - picture of countryside below is taken looking at the view from the front of the shop, which is on a farm. The picture is taken with my cell phone, so it doesn't do the view justice.
After shopping at The Quilted Hill, we went to the Yamhill County Historical Society to help celebrate Oregon's 157th birthday. Here are a few pictures taken in the museum.
