Park and Share…

For every Quilt shop (or two or three) there is a Park to visit…(a girls got to do what a girls got to do….)This park was a pleasure!!  Spectacular!! It’s called Arches National Park (in Utah) and talk about arches!!   I put this park right up there with Sedona- just loved it…So quickly look at the slide show and then…

FEAST your eyes on what my friend Claire has been up to…

Isn’t it cute?  Just love it…

I am sure that it is a Primitive Gatherings pattern…image

I always enjoy looking at Claire’s work as her stitches are always so small and precise…beautiful work…go ahead click on the pictures and have a GOOD look….


So cute…and now Claire has it all ready to go for Christmas…nothing like being early!


Now Claire fingers are all nimble and flexed ready to start stitching her Wool Crazy Quilt.  She has got all her little patches sewn together ready for the fun part~ the appliqué!  I’ll keep you posted!

We are in Salt Lake City for two days…enjoying the sights…this place should be called Quilter’s Paradise!  There is practically a QS on every corner.  My husband thinks it should be called A Husband’s Hell…I guess that’s why they say opposites attract!  Taa Tah for now!! ;o)

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting! 


  1. That is a beautiful park. Look forward to seeing what shops you hit in Salt Lake.


  2. Paulette, I am so loving coming on your holiday with you. I fell like I am experiencing the quilt shops and all with you which is wonderful because so they are so few and far between here in NZ.
    The scenery is amazing, oh I am so enoying my virtual holiday, thanks heaps.
    hugs Deb

  3. Incredible slide show, thank you for sharing that!!!

  4. Those park images are spectacular - thank you for showing them, Claire's work is lovely indeed but I cannot compute Christmas yet!

  5. Hi Paulette, I love all of your pictures. If you get to Springfield, there's a good shop called Cornwagon quilts, I think. It's probably the opposite direction from where you are heading... I haven't come close to checking out all of the fun stores are SLC. Have fun!

  6. There's some really amazing rocks there - some of them look so precarious balanced too.

    As for your friend's mat, I love it.

  7. Beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing. I didn't know Salt Lake City had a lot of quilt shops. I knew I wanted to go for the genealogy, but now it is moved up the list quite drastically.
