Letter from America V

On Tuesday Peggy's and I drove to Yakima.,_Washington
Yakima is inland from Seattle. 

To get there we had to drive over the Cascade Mountains. The drive was so pretty. Just minutes from Lisa and David's house we were in the green leafy countryside. Going over the mountains was ( for my NZ friends) Karangahake Gorge x 100. 

Our main reason for visiting was to meet up with a blogging quilting friend Teresa from Quilting is my Bliss. has the same kind of quilting machine as me. We have been visiting each other's blogs for about 3/4 years now. Teresa made us very welcome at her home. She has her house well decorated with quilts,let me share some pictures with you. Warning lots of pictures to follow.

Here we are with Teresa in front of her Tula Pink Butterfly quilt.
And just so you can see the quilt on its own:

Teresa has lovely quilts and quilted items all through her house. Check out this cream on cream runner on the dining room table:

Lime green and brights table topper.

Fantastic star quilt. Gravity designed by Jaybird quilts:

Take a closer. Look at Teresa's fabulous quilting. 

Teresa is a Tula pink fan so Tula's quilts are all around the house. Look at this lovely one:

A Sew Kinda Wonderful quilt. This the corner of Teresa's studio where she does piecing. I don't think Teresa needs sleep!

Love her collection of miniature quilts show cased along side family photos. They go so well together. 

Teresa had a very clever lady in Seattle custom make this bag for her. Featuring, you guessed it Tula pink again! Can you see the deer peeking out?

We had a splendid visit with Teresa, well worth the journey. Thanks for having us at your house, Teresa.
