Here we are, the dog days of summer. I was away for a few days, I took a drive to The Dalles, OR. It's just east of Hood River, the wind surfing capital of the world, right in the heart of the Columbia Gorge. What an amazing place. I forgot how beautiful it is and I realized how much I missed the rapid moving river, the green trees, brown hills and blue skies. I also miss my friends there. The time spent together is never long enough.
The Columbia River Gorge Quilt Guild held their annual show in Hood River this year. It was a Viewer Judged show and here are some of the photos. Click on them to "up size" them for more detail
First place applique. This was also hand quilted and the quilter used fabric and quilting designs very well in this piece.
First in Miniature
Loved the colors in this one, piecing was fabulous.
I hope everyone is enjoying the last days of August. I'm picking fresh beans, my gladiolas are blooming as are my dahlias. Others have faded away for another year.
