wonderful trip to Iowa…even with the blizzard

Just want to say what a bunch of great Ladies and Bill in Iowa!  We had a full house for the morning lecture and 12 people in class in the afternoon despite the blizzard on Monday.  There was nothing keeping those tough Iowa quilter’s from missing their guild meeting.  The evening lecture only had 28, but still 28 is alot when there are highways closing and events.  Thanks to Jennifer and Debbie who took us out for dinner and for Lynn Stansfield who signed me up to come to Cedar Rapids IA in the first place.  There is still a lot of devestation there from the flood, from June 2008.  I cannot imagine what they went through.  We stayed at the Belmont Hill B&B which was also wonderful!  Here are some photos from the day…

This is Bill's show & tell. This was my favorite. I still have not made a big log cabin..I am jealous..his even looks like something i would pick out!

  1. Love the Farmer’s Wife blocks. I am facilitating a BOM at Always In Stitches in Grove City, Ohio. I have made some of the same blocks with different colors and am really enjoying putting together the quilt. The 6″ blocks are easy to piece for the most part and the templates are accurate.
