Hour glass baby quilt

I had a request for a baby girl quilt a few months ago and the only requirement was that it be lavender.
Another favorite color to work with.
I picked the hour glass pattern again. It's so simple and goes together quick.

I decided to use white in the block this time.

Love these clips instead of pins for the binding.

The finished project...

...all ready to wrap up and gift.

HIgh Trestle Trail

Last weekend I ventured to the High Trestle Trail and Bridge. It's a relatively flat trail,  but I was still waiting for a calm day since there wouldn't be a lot of protection from the wind. I started in Slater and road the 10 miles to the bridge.
It was a beautiful day, and I could see for miles.
The bridge is a half mile long and is 13 stories high.
The view to the north.
The view to the west.
The view to the south.
Took a selfie as proof that I really made it.
View of the bridge from an observation deck looking southeast.

And then I needed to head back to Slater.
View to the east.

Very busy parking lot in Madrid. The trail from Madrid west to the bridge was quite busy and had walkers and riders.
