It’s one of those crazy years where I have found myself boomeranging back and forth to Texas quite a bit. This is trip 3 since January!
And I love coming to Texas. The food is amazing, the quilters are friendly, and where else can you get a whole room to yell “Yeeeehawww!” at a guild presenation??
It was a day of ZERO stress. All flights were on time. My layover in Atlanta was just long enough to grab a bite for breakfast at a Cuban cafe found in terminal T. I don’t think I’ve ever flown out of terminal T before, and it was a welcome surprise.
Cafe con leche- sweet, creamy and hot. Oh boy!
Settling in with some hexie borders.
The Hexie Stars for our China Trip in October are still waiting to be appliqued to a background. I’ll get to it SOON – but there wasn’t time to get it ready between getting hone from Alabama and flying yesterday to Dallas.
I can’t believe how quickly this is going to come around. Getting that little quilt finished is high on the agenda for the next time I have time home – right after I get home from Texas.
So picked up where I left off on the borders for the eternal hexie project. I didn’t get very far before I was closing my eyes and counting some Zzzzzz’s.
The bags all made it, and we headed out for a bite of lunch and to check me in to the hotel for a nap. We were heading over to set up for the meeting at 5pm – so there wasn’t time for much else.
It was BUSY!
And oooh! A freebie table!
I did not leave empty handed!
Honestly, I was a very good girl. They tried to hand me a whole grocery sack so I could take MORE – but I restraeined myself with a few bright colors, and some ever needed neutrals.
And there was time for photo ops when the lecture was over!
I am gearing up for a Talkin’ Turkey workshop today. We’ll have that room rockin’ with 50 quilters with machines humming.
There is just time to pull myself together, grab breakfast and head out the door.
But before I do, I wanted to help spread the word for one of my readers who has some missing quilts. Doesn’t the phrase “Missing quilts” just make your heart stop just a bit? It could happen to any of us.
Monica’s Missing Quilt.
Bonnie - can you help me get the word out?
Recently I moved from Dallas to South Carolina...numerous moving boxes were lost & the moving company cant find them.
In one box was the last quilt top I made in Dallas....I named it sun sets over Texas...it's a large quilt, the distinguishing fabric is pumpkins...I called it that b/c I was leaving an area after 27 years with some hesitation.
This quilt top assembly got me thru that transition time...it's based on your pattern...I am an avid follower of Quiltville & thought maybe one of your followers may see my unique top.
I hope you can help me get this back...several other quilt items were in the box, including fabric, thread & notions...but my quilt top means the most....thank you for all you do.
My heart hurts for the thought of these lost quilts.The box had my phone number on it & yellow post it notes with "TRUCK" marked on it...
It’s large & the borders are orange plaid...I know the people that get my boxes will not hold my quilts to the value I do...one was given to my mom before she died & is irreplaceable...but the moving company does not see its value, beyond its weight....thank you again.
In the case that you see them, please email Monica HERE.

Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Vintage quilt found in Alabama.
Don't keep yourself from growing just because complacency is more comfortable. I have to keep reminding myself of this.
Have an awesome Wednesday, everyone!
