Mountain Top Quilt Guild, Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, VA and Book Review

The Mountain Top Quilters in Prescott, Arizona made my pattern, “Fiesta Mexico”, for their opportunity quilt.  I am very impressed ladies.  I hope you sell lots and lots of tickets.


Here are just a few of my favorite quilts from the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival.

Book Review

While driving to the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, Joe and I listened to David Baldacci’s book “The Guilty”.  Will Robi works for the government as an assassin.  He is highly trained to eliminate threats to the US before they reach our shores.  He has an unsuccessful mission and is second guessing himself.  His father, who he has not seen since he departed the small town where he was raised twenty years earlier, is charged with murder.  Robi goes back to his home town and has lots of issues to resolve.  While trying to find the truth about the murder for which his father is charged, he stumbles unto several challenging issues.  Good read.


Until next week…..
