Galaxy-Gram! an Etowah Valley Birthday!

I had the most awesome day with the Etowah Valley quilters in Cartersville, Georgia!

Today's class was Midnight Flight , and we spent our day with two different colorways of four patches, half square triangles, and our beloved a diamond in a rectangle units in mirror image!

I love how different these basic units look when combined with each other in different ways to create so many different patchwork designs!
I was also very lucky to head out of class by 3:15 p.m. As bad rainy weather moved in.

Nothing is worse than rush hour traffic through Atlanta on a rainy Friday afternoon!

However, I made it south on I-75 and east on I -20 and have just under a hundred miles left to go before I reach Jason's house in Columbia South Carolina tonight.

Dinner with my son awaits! And yes, I am typing this on my phone while stopping for gas and taking a much needed rest break!

As soon as this sends I will be back on the road arriving around 8 p.m.
It's been an awesome birthday, and it isn't over yet!

Love from somewhere in Georgia,


  1. I love the blocks that people made here. And everyone looks like they're having so much fun, too!!!

  2. I hope you made it to Columbia safely, rainy driving in the dark can be a little unnerving. The midnight flight blocks look great. I love the two different colors of four patches. Thanks for taking a moment and keeping us posted!
