Urban Hiking

Here are two quilts in the Urban setting pattern that are going to market. Even today I am amazed at what the same quilt pattern looks like in different colors. These quilts were designed so that you can make the quilt with twelve 12" finished pieced blocks - from a block of the month or twelve orphan blocks - or just twelve 12" finished feature fabric blocks as shown in the center squares .


This summer I joined a hiking group that goes out once a week rain or shine, snow or sleet. The first few times the hikes were not bad. They usually go to the trails in the foothills or mountains but because of the flooding in May/June many bridges were washed out. That is until last week.

I key rumba! Nine of us hiked, more like step climbed, up 1060 ft. vertical to Powderface. It was worth every step, every huffing and puffing breath, every resting stop, every sip of water, to see the 360 degree panorama view of the foothills at the top. Elevation about 5000 ft.

Almost to the top. 2nd last stop. We are on the west side.




Lunch on the west side
