Home again, safe and sound!

I just returned home from a wonderful extended weekend in Atlanta and LA. I went to Atlanta to attend a wedding and went via Atlanta to stop off and visit my sister and brother-in-law. It was a whirlwind but well worth the trip.

The wedding was on the beach in Santa Monica and was a beautiful ceremony joining two lovely people. I must say that it was fun to be there and especially to listen to their very unique wedding vows. The weather was perfect and a welcome respite from our 90+ weather here on the east coast! Had the chance to drive down the coast a bit and loved seeing the Pacific Ocean. It looked like it might be very cold since hardly anyone was in the water.

Of course I wasn't able to to do any sewing while I was away but when I got to Atlanta my sister and I did stop in at one of my favorite quilt shops there. Did buy just a little bit of fabric. I really was holding back. Had to get my fix by buying a few quilt magazines. I'm wondering if any of you have one favorite that you get all the time and read from front to back? I used to love Quilter's Home when Mark Lipinski wrote it but not anymore. Now I'm looking forward to the new Mark Lipinski's Fabric Trends which comes out next month.

Noticed that someone asked about quilts made using jelly rolls so I thought I would post a picture of one I made last year. This was made for a friend who lives in Texas so I used the blubonnet fabric that I bought a while back.


  1. Welcome back- I've missed your blogs!

    Nancy- I would be very interested in seeing your Moose on the Porch Jelly-Roll Sampler quilt. I have downloaded all the directions but would really like to see it all together before I commit.

  2. Hello Nancy welcome home! Did you do the quilt shop in CA? I too missed the blog.

  3. Thanks so much. I've missed writing too!
