We had to leave home so I could get a quilt finished! Well, the past three weeks were not that bad, but almost. Anyway, we are in Canmore in the Canadian Rockies, near Banff. This is the entrance to the main floor condo where we are staying, courtesy of the owner who is a friend. Nice treat for us. It was 23 C. here on Thursday and snowed today. This is odd, even for Alberta.
We drove to Lake Louise yesterday and took lots of pictures. Here is one that I took on my little digital. It was late in the day, and into the sun, so turned out fairly well.
And here is the quilt that now has binding and label. I'm so glad that it is finished! It is about 12" x 48" and has lots of quilting and thread play.
It was inspired by a tiny clipping from who knows where, plus the colors and shapes in the Rockies. The photo was a bit blurry so I took another one, but my camera doesn't seem to like taking close-ups of "wide" subjects, so it is still blurry, but if you double-click on it, it is clear. Go figure.
This quilt is the first of many landscape ideas that are piling up in my mind, particularly after this weekend!
