How can it be Thursday again, already?! It's been another week of on-the-go activities, but I'm lovin' what I'm doing - presenting, teaching, sewing, writing. Being in tip-top health now, and once again with wide-open arteries pumping blood to my legs... well, it's pure joy to line dance three times a week. I'm smiling my way through all the dances!
Monday evening found me, along with blog-friend Lora, giving our "What is Modern Quilting?" to 70 quilters at Tree City Quilters in Gainesville - about 80 minutes from my home.
Following our presentation, we had a little trunk show. I won't bore you with pictures of all the modern quilts I've made and shown on this blog in the past few years, but here are a few. This quilt is being shown sideways!

We've had quite a bit of rain lately, so I've been in my sewing room. Last weekend I free motion quilted. Here's a peep.
Some happy news... I've been invited to Paducah, Kentucky, expenses paid, from April 22-26 for the AQS QuiltWeek, April 22-25. I'll have a job there - to interview the winning quilters, and write about their quilts! Yes, it's work, but somebody's gotta do it... for the July issue of American Quilter magazine. The last time I attended the Paducah AQS show was in 2005 when my Swiss friend Edith visited me in Iowa and we drove to Paducah together. I'm very excited about returning! Are you going to Paducah?
And, what do you think of the Sochi Olympics design, and the athletes' clothing? Aren't the colors eye-catching? Makes me want to start another quilt!
In case you'd like to know how the design evolved, here's an online explanation of the interesting story.
If you like randomness, there's more on Cindy's blog. She has way more variety, than all the quilt-y stuff I've presented! Stop by and say hi. Linda
