Best Laid Flight Plans ---

Are often interrupted!

My 8:15am connecting flight from Dulles to Greensboro is still on the ground, and now not scheduled to depart until noon. AUUGH.

4 hours in Dulles when I haven’t slept much all night? I’m a complete zombie. I am likely to start babbling and talking to strangers and start walking home at this point.

So I’ll come up with something better – I’ll do the photos in stages instead of one full swoop ----smaller, shorter posts are easier to load on iffy airport wifi and easier for those with slower connections and dial up to view.

Here is Randy, talking to the booth owner about this fabulous quilt! It’s got a couple mouse holes, very fixable, and just the beat up country style that we love, so Randy scored this one!

How about a lovely 1930s Pickle Dish?

The tent walls were hung with all kinds of delectable quilts --- Lone Star, Grandmother’s Flower Garden, Appliqued Rose and Log cabin all so pretty!

Ladders also displayed various tops and quilts just ready for adoption!

The colors and the patterns will catch your eye and hold you hostage! I really REALLY like that basket quilt!

Folded and stacked quilts seem to say “pick me up, unfold me, discover me!”

Loved this pretty pink and blue Kings Crown Variation! Love those indigoes ---always!

This cheddar “Rolling Stone” was also a fave last year ---

It was hanging on the rack along with a Carolina Lily, a Mariner’s Compas, a Rose of Sharon -----but that cheddar is what called me!

Can you imagine this Princess Feather in it’s usual red and green when it was new?

There are more to show ----It’s almost time to finally board the flight that should have left at 8am…..so I’ll send this and catch more later!


  1. Wow! So many beautiful quilts! My favorites are the GMF and the one next to the basket quilt. I think it is called something like a nosegay quilt? I don't think there is an ugly one in the bunch! I so can't wait until next year! I told all the kids that there are to be "no weddings, no surgeries, no babies (so no nookie in October) because I'm going to Sister's next year!

    1. LOL you made me spit tea with the "no nookie" comment!!
      Thanks for the laugh.

  3. Love the quilts. Must be the flying odyssey weekend. my sister and niece went to NYC this weekend, started flying home to Tulsa at 11ish Sunday, were in Detroit at 9 am Monday.

    On the very first photo with Randy holding up the Churn Dash quilt with the green sashing...can you pick out the block that has one piece turned wrong? Interesting quilt, gives it charm.
