Sketch Book.....on the ROAD

I took 3 Sketch Books along on our trip...

and I filled 2 of them up

I try to give myself a diagram as to how I should approach the  designs when I am stitching them out 
onto a quilt surface.

You think you will remember, but sometimes I don't.

It is much quicker to look at my diagram and then I am 
off and running with the free motion quilting.

Yellowstone Bison

I drew this pebble design a few months ago.
In the one above I echo quilted around the words twice.
I didn't echo around the numbers.
When I stitch this out, I will echo around the numbers.

 Irrigation Wheel Lines Design:

Here it is October and many farmers are still irrigating their fields.

Irrigation Wheel Line

This was a FUN design to draw out.
It should flow beautifully when I stitch it into a quilt.

 We heard from Heath last night in Yellowstone.
Autumn is brief there.
The park is preparing for a long, snowy winter.

Heath climbed the mountain in the center of the photo in August.
