Loose Threads: Mountains and Pillows

Mountains and Pillows

We just returned from a week in the Smoky Mountains.  That is one of my favorite places to visit.

This is the view from the balcony of our cabin.  It's a great place to just get away from it all and relax, and there are lots of things to do that are close.

I visited several quilt shops.  Here are some of the things that I found along the way.  These fabric packs are from Lella Boutique for Moda.  I love her fabrics.  This time we ventured quite a distance to Mountain Creek Quilt Shop in Greenback, Tennessee.  My friend, Michele had just been there and thought I should check it out.  What a fun shop.  I hope to return there sometime!

I made this pillow from my Charming Hexagon Pillow Pattern.  It's available from my Etsy shop or from Back Door Quilts.   

Here's another done in Little Red fabric by Moda.  I added a flange to this pillow.  

 I also made my grandson's these cloth books from panels that I bought at the Kokomo One Stop Shop Hop.

That's the update for now.  Time seems to be flying by, and I can't keep up.  I do some sort of stitching each day and will be back soon to show you some of what I've been up to.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Lucky you to get to go to the Smoky Mountains. We have been going most every summer for a good while but could not make the trip this summer. I really missed it. We have been staying in the Maggie Valley area and there is a quilt shop close by. Plus two in Franklin, NC that I visit each time we are in the area.
