Next Stop-Batavia!

     I finished the Native Harvest pattern in time for the Batavia show.

      They wanted my to have a giveaway for their raffle at the show. This is most of it I took this picture before I added a candy bar, seam ripper, and measuring tape to it.

     The car is packed (mostly). The house sitter is arranged for; the laundry is done; the oil in the car is changed; the dishes are washed. I even managed to locate a cousin who lives near there on Facebook!

     All I have left is to put together a few note cards with quilt photos.

     Also, I have been working steadily on the Let's Polka quilt. I added this block on the design wall.

     In stead of taking down the Native Harvest pattern quilt; I put a couple of strips of Velcro on the wall, and sewed the other side of the Velcro to the right side of a vinyl tablecloth. Layered the tablecloth over the previous design. I felt pretty smart! I will let you know if it works out. 

     I also got pretty far into working on the next block.

     I only have 2 seams left; and they will look like this.

     I have the strips for the next 2 block types packed and ready to go with me; so hopefully, I will come back with them all cut.

     While I am gone, I think I will take my computer in to be looked over, I keep getting the same error message coming up.

     If you happen to be in the Batavia IL area this weekend; stop by and say hi! It never ceases to amaze me that when I look at my stats on this blog; I have several page views from Russia!, and several other far away countries. So maybe hoping someone from near Batavia IL might see this; is not so far fetched after all!

     Anyway, wish me luck; and as always, thanks for stopping by!
