My Brother In Law had a quilt in Road this year. I wanted to go, but just could not. Was on your site looking for pictures. Will come back again. Thanks

Marianna said...

Well, look at that, 104 comments. Seems blog readers do alot of weekend reading. Me, I am catching up and hope that I can still be part of the Road to Cali giveaway. Your pic may have come from internet, but it is ALL Jo fabric. I took a LMS class from Jo and like the blocks very much. Fingers crossed here in Texas.

Marianna said...

Looked again at your Road block and on second thought I think I am wrong on the Jo fabric, but it is still a pretty block. Counting....

Sharon said...

This is my first visit to your blog, I came through the Hexi 2 blog. I LOVED my Jo Morton class in summer of 07. We made baskets. She rocks!

Mary said...

I'm back home after sharing special time with you in Jo's class on Saturday and a wee bit of Sunday. I wish I was still stitching with you and Jo!

Anya said...

How wonderful! Thanks for the chance!
