Yvonne's Photo Quilt

 I just got this quilt done for Yvonne. She is rushing off to a 60th Wedding Anniversary later this month and had me quilt this for her. I thought this was a great photo quilt so I asked to show it off.

 The blocks are 16 inches and makes a good sized quilt.  She had the photo transfer done at a printing shop. The photos are then soft and can be quilted though. I quilted it with hearts and loops. She wanted me to do some quilting onto the photos but we stayed off the faces.

She has used the left over fabric to build her backing. It turned out great. I am sure the family will love your work Yvonne.

Blackfoot Trail Riding

Honey checking out Adam putting his lunch away.

 This past week the family and our horses got to go for a day long trail ride. We loaded the horses and drove to the Blackfoot Grazing reserve. We try to make it out there at least once a year.

 My horse Jester is wanting his share of the root beer. He has to check it all out.

 Wyatt was riding Scotty this trip and Scotty thought he would like more than grass for lunch, but it is gone. Scotty likes to steal the apples, bag and all.

 Faces looking out. Jester, Socks, Scotty and Honey at the end.

Here is Brad and his horse Socks. We got him last fall and he is working out great.

No photos of me yet. I have to get Brad's camera and down load the photos. Also take note all our photos were not when we were riding. I just find there is to much riding to have my camera out.
