Quilted Butterflies, Piecing Baby Quilts, a River, Sew Stitch Snap Share

This is the backing for two quilts I'm piecing together.

I'm making two four patch quilts for my two grandsons.

We walked along the Puyallup River yesterday, it's south of Renton.

Native Americans are allowed to use nets to fish in the Puyallup River.

I've finished machine quilting my butterfly quilt, now to the binding.

Hello from  Renton, WA where it's a bit cooler today.

We walked along the Puyallup River yesterday, so the fishermen in the family could scope it out. Salmon fishing opens tomorrow. 
Native Americans here are allowed to use nets to fish for salmon and they were busy at it.

This week I pieced two four patch quilts I'm making for my grandsons. I thought the map on the backing and the trucks and cars on the front went together and would be fun to look at for them.

I also finished the machine quilting on my butterfly quilt, I've named it 'Gathering.'
It'll have white binding, Kona 'snow' and a hanging sleeve. It will look good on a wall.

Jo Morton has a book out, recently published by That Patchwork Place ,'Jo's Little Favorites II' a classic collection of 15 small quilts.
 Her historically inspired small quilts are beautiful, great design and color. 
This is an excellent resource and it'll be just the thing for reading on a slow day to get your creative juices flowing again!

I'm linking up with Linda and Julie for Sew Stitch Snap Share. Stop by to find color and quilt/project inspiration. Thanks Linda and Julie for hosting this good idea.

Have a wonderful week and next post I hope to share more farmers market photos.

I'll be by to visit.
