Hiking Path along the American River.

Yellow Iris grows along the river bank.

Wild flower, Triple Lily.

My art quilt, 'Queen Anne's Lace' more embroidery added, couching lace down.

Another of my small art quilts with running stitch added, I'll wrap my embroidery threads in it.

Hello from beside the river!
Sun and warm/hot weather here.
Happy Memorial Day to you, remembering those who gave their lives and served, those who've gone on before us and remembering to be thankful.

Along the river walk there are wild flowers blooming and wild cherry and fig have their green fruit forming. 

This week I added more embroidery/couching to my 'Queen Anne's Lace' quilt. Yes, I changed the name, naming it for a wild flower made more sense to me.

And I finished my smaller art quilt (which has some similar fabric and color as my 'Queen Anne's Lace' quilt) by embellishing it with running stitch, leaving the starting and finishing knots exposed for effect. It is now a wrapping cloth meant to protect my embroidery thread. 

And be sure and visit Jill @ PieLadyQuilts to see her inspiring quilts, they are exciting and amazing, very improv, very liberated.

And that is the Quilt News from along side the American River, where projects are progressing!
What are you working on?

I'll be by to visit.

Just trying to work on the very 'no pressure' projects. Taking my time and going with the flow! Very nice to see your small projects progressing. Glad that you're able to take walks and get out in the sun!

Thanks for sharing all the beautiful photos of your hikes. So lovely. Lucky you to be there to enjoy them. And how fun that you are working on Queen Anne's lace on your quilt, too. Stay safe.

Queen Anne’s Lace is one of my favorite wildflowers. Your hand quilting is gorgeous.

Queen Anne's Lace is one of the prettier wildflowers and those yellow iris are spectacular - a nice surprise along the bank of the river. We live right on the local river but they keep the grass cut right to the edge so no wildflowers have a chance to grow.
