I'm sorry about leaving you waiting at the airport, however, that is just what we did.  We were scheduled to leave Phoenix at 10:15.  Our flight ended up leaving at 1:20, although it was iffy up until the last minute if we would leave then.  Ordinarily, a flight delay is not a problem.  I enjoy airports and I had plenty of things to read.  I like browsing in the shops just in case I find something I really didn't need.  Which I did.  I found a great tote bag that was $30 originally marked down to $6.99.  You just can't pass up something like that!  The problem with this flight delay was that Kansas University was playing basketball that afternoon.  We had planned on arriving in San Fransisco, checking into our hotel, and then going to the local KU Alumni Bar to watch the game.  We quickly realized that wasn't going to happen.  We landed safely and were picked up by a limousine.  I've always wanted to have someone standing there with my name on a sign and that is exactly what happened.  Oh, and did I mention that he was tall, dark and had a wonderful Brazilian accent?  We were treated to a nice ride to the hotel which was unbelievable.  Historic, downtown in the shopping district, and very upscale.  I don't believe I have ever stayed in a hotel room that had a chandalier.  More about my trip later, but let's look at some quilts. 

Even as an adult, I love crayons so this fabric jumped out at me.

The quilting is great for this quilt.

And what a fun backing!

This quilt was put together completely with leftovers from another quilt.  We certainly get lots of mileage from our fabric!

The pink flamingos just say fun!

I absolutely fell in love with the backing our quilter used!

Is this cute, or what?

These ducks are darling and the colors are so sweet!

The backing is perfect.

I hope you enjoyed the quilts today.  Check back.  I'll be giving you some more information on my jaunt to San Fransisco and as usual some absolutely awesome quilts.
