On the Road to California! WooHoo!

I'm having the best morning, unlike a few days ago.
I have the Australian Open Tennis on the tellie and Roger is in a battle in the 5th set.
I'm packing my bags for a road trip to California to attend the quilt show in Ontario.
We are going to include a side trip to Temecula, then down to Vista and The Fat Quarter Shop.
From there, we will head to the Country Loft near San Diego and then home.
I'll be back next week with lots of pics and a bag full of goodies to share.

In the meantime, I have been recruited to teach the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt, so I better get busy making a few blocks.
Here is my progress so far.
Right up my alley, drafting on a small scale and sharing with others.
See you next week!

What a great trip; have fun!! You should also squeeze in Quilters Coop right in the old town of Temecula. Oh, and definitely sample some of the southern California wine. I particularly like the local Chardonnay. :)

Oh, Temecula - my Mecca; please report on your visit!
I really like your blocks, esp. that unusual pattern in the middle.

Sounds like a fabulous trip, please squeeze us into your case. We won't be any trouble. Have a great time and travel safely. I see that you have made your decision about the signature swap. Would not have been happy to miss out on a block from you!
