This is Sheri's Lug Nuts quilt that she was working on at our Swan River Retreat. You can find this pattern in our Highway 10 Designs Etsy shop here. I love the soft corals, beige and browns she used, very pretty.
Its hard to see the quilting design in these pictures as the sun has not been out for the last few days but I used the panto Allium. Quilters Dream Blend batting and a coral So Fine thread on top and a beige Bottom Line on the back. I had a Stonehenge backing that match her quilt top perfectly!
I had a fun encounter this morning with a very friendly fox. I was sitting at my kitchen table when it walked by on our deck so I grabbed my camera and even had time to add the zoom lens and went outside to get a few pictures. It was startled at my presents at first as it was just resting under our bird feeder but just ran around the house and came back. Then it started chasing squirrels in our yard and I cheered it on! He walked right up to me, within 2 metres, which was too close for me so I stepped back a few steps to keep a comfortable distance.
He is a very healthy looking fox with a fluffly red coat.
This last picture is my favorite.
My client Sheri who made this Lug Nuts quilt will probably get a kick out of these fox pictures as her maiden name is Fox! How appropriate to get great pictures of this creature on the day I was posting her quilt pictures.
