Missouri Star Quilt Tour July 2017

Got My Bag Ready for Trip to Missouri Star!

It's so exciting!  Finally I am going to Hamilton, MO to visit the home of Missouri Star Quilt (LINK) and the now famous You Tube celebrity, Jenny Doane.  All thanks to Eagle Rock Tours out of Mineral City and Fredericktown, Ohio.  Click Here to visit the Eagle Rock Website!

We, my friend Barbie and I, have taken other trips with Eagle Rock and the tour agent Lisa Pfouts.  We went to Shipshewana in 2015 (CLICK HERE) and to the AQS Show, 2016, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  (CLICK HERE).  Click on the links and see my blog posts from those trips.  Having experienced these quilting adventures with Eagle Rock, I can highly recommend their service and dependability.  We also had tons of fun meeting new quilting friends!  Barbie and I are already booked on the tour for Missour Star Quilt.  You can find this trip on the Eagle Rock website, but here are some details:

2016 Back to Mrs. Miller's Cabin

Going through my pictures, I realized that I missed blogging about our fall retreat at Mrs. Millers Cabin in Charm, Ohio.  This retreat has become a tradition in November for our little group of seven quilters - Carol, Barbie, Mama Barb, Michelle, Debbie, Jackie and me.  It's such a pleasure to visit Amish country in the fall.  It doesn't hurt that the quilt shop is a short walk away.

Lots of fun quilt projects are completed and lots of good food is shared.  It's a quilter's paradise.

Michelle prepared a "quilt" lasagna.  Beautiful and Delicious!
Barb saved more blocks from extinction by putting this quilt together for a friend.

Nothing better than sitting and sewing and sharing our lives.
