Savannah GA

I am Savannah this week at the Gulf and South Atlantic Shellfish Conference.  Yesterday was my day to present a talk.  I am relieved that this is behind me and I can enjoy the remainder of my stay here in this very historic town.

The meeting ended at 12:00 noon and I was able to spend some time walking around the downtown area. 

During my time here I had the opportunity to take a Paula Deen tour which ended with a meal, in a private dining room, with entertainment.  Paula was in town signing her new cookbook, but the line was too long, I had to get back to the Conference.  A friend's wife stood in line and got several books signed.

Paula greeted us!!

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol 5

Today is the day that the latest Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks (Vol 5)  goes on sale.  I am celebrating because I have a quilt in the newest edition, under the Tester's Gallery.  My quilt is the first one, Ginger and Fred Visit the Farm. 

I was a tester for this particular publication and was invited to make a quilt with one or more of the blocks being tested. 

I do not have a picture of the quilt but I did take a picture of it in the magazine.

Happy quilting,
