I was told that I would meet plenty of nice people in that area; and that was certainly true! Not only that, but I got to spend some time with 2 of my cousins who live near Chicago, and who I hadn't seen in many years. I also received a visit from 2 friends from my high school days in Florida! It was so great to see all of these folks; and I was really touched that they took the time to come and visit with me; and in the case of my cousins, Harold, and Marlene, opened up there home to me!
While I was away, I got word that I have been accepted to the Fall Arts in the Park show in Blue Ridge GA, in October.
I tried to get some work done while I was traveling. I got these blocks completely finished, and up on the design wall.
I took strips with me and cut pieces for the last 2 main blocks for the Let's Polka quilt. Today I got the all paired, now all I have to do is sew them.
While traveling, I cut squares for half square triangle for a new quilt, just so I would have something to work on when I went as far as I could go on the other quilt. I got all of the marking done. I will take them on my next trip and pair them up. I play to pair the solids with the prints; then form designs from the resulting HSTs.
Tomorrow my friend Eleanor, is coming by to sew with me ; so, hopefully I will get a lot of those remaining Let's Polka blocks sewn.
At the end of the week I will be in Berea, Kentucky; selling patterns at another quilt show. Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by!
