A Night Run at Snowshoe

I finished binding this Winter Landscape, adding the borders so that the light and the dark ran off the sides. It's a little difficult to photograph the quilting on the white fabric, but here is a little closer look.

Every year we travel to Snowshoe West Virginia for a family vacation. My children love to snowboard. We usually arrive late in the day, so everyone heads to the slopes and does some night snowboarding. I created this wall hanging as a memory quilt for our fun family times together.

I've entered this Winter Landscape in a contest over at Quilting Gallery and I would love your vote!

Thanks in advance to all those who vote. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!
