The Ants Go Marching.....

This past week has found me in Bowling Green, Kentucky and Austin, Texas.  Two very different places but both nice to visit.  Austin brought a chance for Greg to visit the campus of the University of Texas much to his delight and also an evening with our friends Michael, Lisa and Baby Oliver.  We enjoyed eating, laughing and a lot of fun.  Of course, I enjoyed Oliver and became all the more anxious for our grandson's arrival in January.  As a result of the visit, I have the Ant song marching through my head.  Thanks Lisa.

This was the most interesting thing I think I saw in Austin.  I have no idea what it is but I thought it was interesting.

And now to Block Two of Civil War Love Letters.

Susan's Batik version

My Fig Tree Version


Nothing but fun in this one.  It started as a panel and Judith added blocks on the side.  Who wouldn't want this bright quilt with bugs and flowers?

Karen added the backing and quilting.  Great!

This is one of the Guild Member's quilts.  I love the contrast between the red and the focus fabric. It really brings out the star design.

A closer look at the focus fabric.

The striped backing is a perfect choice.

We are finishing some bindings on some awesome quilts.  Check back for those.

And finally, a big congratulations to Shannon, one of our longarm quilters.  She became Grandma to Boy #2 yesterday.  Liam Robert is a beautiful bundle to bring home.  I am so happy for Shannon and her family.
