On the Road…

Traveling……Quilter Style

I have my Quilt Wrangler with me…

We are traveling through the Pacific Northwest

Apple Core Quilt

We followed onion trucks down the road...

We stopped for the onions along the road side 

that fell off the trucks.

Windmill Farm along the Columbia Gorge

Paul Harvey Quilt at the Windy Flats

Paul Harvey is my personal lap quilt. It keeps me warm when I am on the couch at home, and it also travels with me everywhere I go. I sleep with this quilt when we are in motel rooms while traveling from state to state. It just makes an overnight stay a bit more like home, and I sleep better cuddling up with it.

Yes, I named my quilt "Paul Harvey" after the radio announcer 
that tells us "The Rest of the Story."
This quilt started out as a class kit in Idaho. When I returned home to Oregon I realized all of the fabrics were not in the kit. I waited months for the quilt shop to send the missing fabrics......but it never happened.
I eventually found fabrics on my own and incorporated them into the quilt top.
 The border fabric came from Canada.
This quilt took so much longer to complete than I had anticipated. After awhile I began to feel like it would never be done........when would I see....."The Rest of the Story."
I eventually began to refer to this quilt in progress as my Paul Harvey quilt.
