My Mountain and giant amaryllis

This is the quilt that is keeping me from starting my next project. It is about 37" wide and 44" high. I'm using my DM and putting lots of quilting on it which my body can only take for short spurts. Progress is slow. Also, my camera is still doing the blurry on some settings, so this picture is sharp, but the color is pretty good. Can you see the basting pins? 

This close-up shows a bit of detail in one part that is finished.

The last picture is one flower my late-blooming amaryllis. Wanda's post reminded me to take a picture. There are two stalks, and the second one has yet to come fully into bloom, but this one has four massive flowers, each more than 7" across. It is totally amazing, considering I did everything wrong caring for it so it would even grow. 

Back to the sewing machine... well, I have to buy groceries first. Life getting in the way of quilting - again!

Taht looks like a quilting job that you won't want to rush. It is a beautiful scene.

You just reminded me to get a picture of the 2 blooms fully opened!
