Thank you!

Thanks to all for your good birthday wishes! I am enjoying this starting birthday early thing!! While at Suzy's quilt shop on Saturday, I picked up all the FQs that go with the Baltimore Album panel that Debi gave me for my BD. Such wonderful fabric and colors! The picture shows the panel and the FQs and the other picture show the pattern. Mine will be a little bit smaller.

I'll probably wait to start this until we get back from our trip that we are taking to Wisconsin --leaving on Thursday and coming back on Sunday--so if you don't hear anything from me that's where I'll be.

It's to be a "trip back home" for me since I haven't been back in 30 years. None of my family is still there, but I hope to see some old neighbors and perhaps my old college roommate. Plus a look at the old farm homestead and the town where we used to roam! The old one room school house is supposed to be still standing where I attended all 8 grades of elementary school.

There were 14 kids in the whole school of 8 grades! No running water and no hot lunch. I remember my father bringing a huge (to me) can of water to school every day. The privies were in the back and you hurried in the cold Wisconsin winters, believe you me!

I have my map all made out for stops at 5 different quilt stores I found along the way, too!! Should be a trip to remember!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
