Biking, Dinosaurs & a Quilt
June 11, 2009 § 21 Comments
I really enjoy riding my bicycle. Early morning really is the best time for us to go riding along the Sammamish River Trail. Even though I feel big and slow and sluggish on my mountain bike as the hard core bike commuters whiz by on their slim titanium road bikes, I still like to ride.
But, I really need to start taking the camera with me and show you some of the sights along the way! Today we saw a gaggle of Canadian geese with two sets of goslings. One set was young enough that they were still a soft yellow color. Oh so cute! But the most amusing sight was a plastic dinosaur strategically placed on one side of the trail. It wasn’t there when we passed by the first time. But on the return trip it was staring us down, daring us to continue. Both Gary and I started laughing and imagining what the story behind the dinosaur might be. Attacked by the dreaded Tyrannosaurus Rex of the Sammamish River Trail!
I finally stitched together the blocks for the Old Red Barn Quilt-Along. All these fabrics together just make me smile. It’s not too late to jump in and join if you’ve been pondering it. Now I just need to decide if I want to quilt this at home or send it out.
~ 15 half-yard cuts of fabrics – well, the equivalent of that. There were a couple of fat quarters to make up a half yard, and a couple of scraps leftover from previous projects that nearly equaled a half yard each.
~ Finished size of blocks = 10 inches
~ Finished size of quilt = 80 inches square.
