5 Things Friday…

Hello!!! It’s Friday, it’s the first Friday in August and that means it is time for my 5 things Friday list. Before I get to that I want to let you see that I did the first step of the Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along. If you’re not aware, the Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along is hosted by Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl. I’m doing this quilt in all solid fabric which is something new for me. I love the colors I’ve chosen. The darkest color is Riley Blake Lagoon Solid, my medium fabric is Riley Blake Baby Bluebird Solid, and my lightest fabric is Riley Blake Confetti Cotton in Off White. I’ve cut all my fabric as you can see in the photo and I’m ready for the next step. I’m linking up with Quilting Jetgirl.


Now it’s time for my 5 things Friday. I love doing this every Friday but have to admit that sometimes I forget to take photos simply because I don’t always have my DSLR with me. So this week you are getting photos courtesy of my iPhone. I love my IPhone camera, sometimes I love those photos more than photos from my “real” camera. You can make your own list and link up to Amanda at Gypsy Moon Quilt Co.

  1. I am still loving these purple thistles. I love their bright color against the dry, brown background of the prairie.


2. Sunday mornings at Red Rocks Amphitheater when it’s quiet and no one’s waiting for a concert.


3. Regardless of how dry it’s been, flowers are still hanging on. This spot is a historic spot in my town where the stagecoach used to stop. It’s known as 20 mile house because it’s 20 miles from downtown Denver.20 mile

4. Sunny yellow flowers at the Farmer’s Market.IMG_1142

5. I was dinking around with filters and I loved how the bridge ended up looking so dimensional in this photo.

    Wonderful photos! Your snowflake shimmer colors look awesome and I’m excited to see the progress of your quilt. The iPhone does seem to do a good job of documenting things and is much more portable than DSLR. Happy weekend!

    Your Snowflake Shimmer palette is gorgeous. Those are my happy colors for sure! 😍 All my photos are from my iPhone (even of my quilts and yes, I know better, lol). I keep saying I’m going to take my DSLR out to shoot, but always end up forgetting it.

    Loving all your nature photos, especially the bridge… so dreamy! Hope you have a lovely weekend. Happy Friday!
