My Alison Glass / Pickle Dish Variation Quilt is Finished

The pattern is from Rita’s blog and I fell in love instantly.  The only fabric I used was by Alison Glass.  All the background neutral is from her Abacus line and the colored parts are from various lines.  I won a nice bundle from Modern Sewciety a few years back and that helped my collection.  The layout was a happy chance and I didn’t have to make many more pieces to make the colored circles work.  It finishes at 72″ square and I quilted it pretty dense.  Now for a name.

The top photo was taken Monday near the Cooper Spur Ski Area on Mt. Hood.  Kevin and I hiked 8 miles in snow shoes with an elevation gain of 3,000′.  Here is the final push to our destination:  The Cooper Spur shelter on the Timberline Trail at 6800′.

We knew it would be filled with snow and planned to tent camp.

The snow and wind blew throughout the night and this was our tent in the morning.  It’s been a long time since we’ve had snow in our boots.

This was the visibility in the morning.

This is probably close to the most challenging part of the trail.  It’s pretty  narrow and the area after this is pretty steep with the trees much further down the slope.
