Merry Christmas everyone

Merry Christmas everyone
with the love of my life, George

What am I doing writing a blog?

Quilting is one of the few places in my life where all the corners meet and stay put. On this blog I plan to ruminate about quilting and life, the quilted life, cat and quilts, and any old thing that falls in and out of my brain. I'd be pleased to hear from you on all of this or any topic of interest!

Yes, I am STILL working on that quilt!

It has been a long time since I have sat down to blog. I was actually REMINDED that I HAD a blog when my facebook friend, Anthony Jones, asked for opinions about starting a blog. So here I am again as November fades into December and winter (and Christmas) is just around the corner. I did have the goal to finish Jamie and Jeff's quilt by Christmas but it is not going to happen. Unless I win the lottery and can quit my day job....not likely!

So... I am back to working diligently on THE ROAD TO CALIFORNIA. Last time I posted, I had the ocean waves and two Road to California blocks made. Since that time I have done the third Road to California block:

The California Constellation block:

Diagonal blocks of Sunflowers and polka dots (which Jamie says she really loves):

Some triangular rainbow blocks:

and some half square border blocks:

Some goose track:

Some steeples:

Some diamonds:

And here it is all put together!

Tomorrow night, I will do the log cabin that rests on top of the third Road to California block and then I can continue the sunflowers and polka dots diagonal.

While working on the quilt yesterday, I had a fantastic idea for the back but I am going to keep it secret until I give the kids the quilt. Stay tuned!

PS. Here is my constant companion, Vincenzo Gato (Vinnie the Cat) helping me quilt!
