“Initially Yours” Quilt Challenge at WQG

Our Westside Quilter’s Guild issued it’s yearly challenge, “Initially Yours”.  My initials are “A” and “C”.  I was raised in the Appalachian Mountains where our family hiked and now I hike and backpack in the Cascade Mountains.  On my quilt, both the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail symbols are among the trees as well as a hiker.  Kevin, my husband, created the initials for me to look like a wandering paths around a peak.  The back is a running themed fabric I won at the guild’s brown bag auction and perfect since I’ve run for over 30 years.  Since we were backpacking on the McNeil trail this past weekend, I toted up the quilt for a photo session.

    Good job, AnnMarie! I especially like the shot of your quilt draped across the tent. And the nightscape is gorgeous!
