New luggage will be easy to find at Baggage Claim:
I will NOT buy black luggage. Not when purple is available. The large TravelPro suitcase is new so this is the photo I will keep in my phone until the suitcase has to be replaced. When/if my luggage is delayed, it helps to have this photo to work from at the Lost Luggage Claim department.
While I'm gone, The Splendid Sampler will reveal four more blocks so I'll have to play catch-up when I get home. Here are blocks #71-73:
This week I finished binding Quilters Madder and Color in Black and White, 2:
It's hard to tell scale, this quilt is 48" wide x 44" high. It is the small version of a queen-size quilt. It will hang in the Education office for two weeks--several of our Team bring a quilt to help brighten the office for all to enjoy. I wrote about the large one here.
For my local friends, the Winter Class Schedule at Patches & Stitches is being completed right now. Here are my samples and dates:

All of these quilts are in my car to be dropped off tonight when I go to teach the Beginning class. Here's hoping many of the local folks will find something here that appeals to them. It is so rewarding to help quilters improve their skills and make "gifts for generations yet unborn.".
If I get a chance, I'll do a blog post or two from Houston--our days are long and full but there will be lots worth sharing, just not sure I'll have much time for it. I will post photos on Instagram for sure so follow me there if you like: bbquiltmaker.
