Well, I am back from the sunny south! My daughter and I took advantage of her spring break holiday from middle school to make the 700+ mile drive down to Alabama to see my relatives. We had a great trip and are safely back home in Michigan. We left early chilly spring in Michigan and arrived in early hot summer in Alabama...the Dogwoods, Redbuds, and fruit trees were blooming and bulbs and flowers putting on a show.
On the way "down," we stopped by one of my FAVORITE quilt shops in northern Kentucky, THE QUILT BOX. If you love reproduction fabrics, I think they carry everything ever made. They are located on a lovely farm, just between I-71 and I-75 in Dry Ridge (where they "split," just south of the Ohio/Kentucky border). It is worth the short jog off either interstate to get there!! They have been in business for 26 years and definitely know what they are doing!
Thanks to everyone who put in a guess for the finishing of the Civil War Bride quilt. Quilting is progressing.
I look forward to catching up with everyone's blogs. I was away from a computer for over a week and I am behind on email and blog reading. The Liberated Lady block swap took place last Friday morning during "sit & stitch" at The Quilting Season quilt shop...thanks to Ellen T. for leading our local group, the Seasoned Quilters, on this fun and dynamic project. I look forward to getting my distribution of ladies...maybe later this afternoon!
