Quiet Week and More Quilt Show Photos

Not much going on in my life this week.  I worked every day and I've just felt kinda lethargic.  Anyone else have weeks like that?  I thought I'd share more photos from the International Quilt Festival.  Wouldn't it be nice if I could say I was sharing photos from Paducah KY?

This quilt below was representing our very dry summer last year.  I must say that is how I felt and I sure hope we don't have that dry of a summer this year.

This is some 10x10 squares that I would like to use in a quilt and I keep trying them out in different ways on my design wall.  This is the first time I've used layer cakes and this is two of them.  Any suggestions?  Should I put the yellow and blue together with white and the others together with a white or should I use other colors? 
Should I divide them up and use some of all the colors in both quilts?  Lots of decisions!!  Or maybe I need to take them down and put them in a drawer again?  LOL  I'm sure no one else ever does that.  I love these bright strong colors but just not sure!!!

It's in the 50's and cloudy today.  I did go out and pull some weeds.  Never a problem with the weed crop!

Have a great day/evening!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Blue Sky, Clouds, Sunshine & Driving in The Country

These are photos that I took from the car going about 60mph and I thought they turned out well.  My friend was driving and I was in the back seat.  The sky was amazing and I just started pointing and shooting.  I thought they turned out great.

This is a barn that appears to be falling down.  I like old barns as they have so much character

These are rock walls on Hwy 46 and they have so much beauty

I love looking at the shapes of the trees against the sky.  Remember that I'm just clicking away so I did not know what I had until I down loaded all of these.  I'm going to do this more often as you get some great photos.

Look at the great shadow of the pine trees.

This looks so clean and neat with the white fence, green of the grass, the trees and that amazing sky.

I saw this coming up and started clicking.  I think this is a great little stream.  I played in little creeks and streams when I was growing up.  Wonderful memories.

You can see the frame of the car in this photo as I was trying to capture the barn way out in the field.
All of these photos were taken on Highway 46 between Greensburg and Columbus Indiana.
