These are the kind of smiles that make my day!
And what a fun day we had in Marion, Iowa with the Eastern Iowa Heirloom Quilters! Our class project? Texas Tumbleweed from my book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders.
it was a bit dicey at first –it was pouring to beat the band as ladies were arriving to unload their cars….Mother Nature seemed intent on soaking us through to the skin!
But what’s a bit of water –when we are going to be inside sewing away all day!
Let the sky do what it will…we were safe and dry, or mostly dry after an hour or so – of being inside!
Ladder blocks and Star blocks on parade!
Sweet machines to ooh and ahh over!
Hello, sweet thing!
And Leader & Ender Tumblers are joining in on the fun!
How do you know that Debbie is a quilter? One shoe off, one shoe on! Ha!! LOVE IT!
She and her friend Barb drove down from Minnesota to spend the WEEK! Hooray!
We had a super duper time in Marion!
I sure loved spending the day with this wild bunch!
At the end of a very productive day, there were creamy cold rewards to be found at Culvers! Chocolate Almond Coconut Crunch…yes please!

My friend Irene arrived from Texas last night, and today we make our way toward West Union and Olewein for 4 days of retreating with Jo & Kelli of Jo’s Country Junction!
There is more Iowa fun in store – and I’m sure that we will find some time to browse some antique malls, hit a quilt shop or two and have fun on our travel day from here to there.
Have an awesome Wednesday, everyone!
