Post #100!!

   How appropriate for my 100th blog post to land on a WWW day.   If you have been reading these since post #1 well than you deserve a huge thank you.  Thanks for sticking with me as I've learned to navigate this blogging world.  OK, lets talk quilts...
   With the Road to California show ending this past weekend we are still getting a huge amount of "Road" warriors into the shop.  The week started with a class being held at the Coop taught by non other than Lisa Bongean from Primitive Gatherings.  One of the 2 dozen students in the class shared what I thought was just a spectacular quilt.
 What I love about Tina's quilt (entitled "Postage Due"), is that she's crazy!  Can you imagine that many teeny tiny little squares, and when I asked her how long it took her? she said "oh, like a month".  But seriously so impressed with the fact that someone as young as Tina is so passionate about quilting as to tackle this magnificent quilt.
   Let's see what else happened this week...Oh, I remember Elvia brought in David Taylor!!!  Now being the applique' geek that I am you must know that for me this was like meeting the King of all things Applique'.
Thank you Elvia totally made my day.
Since it is Wednesday then I will be workin on some quilting.  I have this little quilt of mine that needs some outer border stitching done.  Too bad I can't think of a design that will complement those grandmother flower gardens.
I'll have to hit the books and look for something that sparks my creative juices.  So that's Wednesday and again I can't thank you enough for following me.    Best Wishes, Laural
