AQS Lancaster – a road trip

Debby Brown – she’s just awesome

Y’all know me. I get excited and have to share this excitement with you. I’m excited to share my first blog post at Generation Q Magazine. I am glad to have that under my belt and can get on with the business of getting all the other things done. Like the 2nd blog post.

So, I went to the quilt show in Lancaster on Wednesday with a few friends Giovanna, Cathy and Anne. Living in the City presents a few driving challenges, particularly during rush hour. There was a wee bit of traffic on our way out of the City. I had a wee bit of a “bless  your heart” moment, saying it out loud. One of my friends said, “I don’t think that’s what you meant. I laughed. Oops. I got caught! When we got in the car I programmed Josie – the GPS – for the convention center. We go merrily along driving closer and closer to Lancaster. Mind you – I’m planning on being in on a staff meeting (telephone conference call) at a certain time. We’re driving and driving – we cross the Susquehana – I’m thinking of my friend Margie and my friend Sr. Helene I’m waving as we drive by and talking with the gals in the car and suddenly remember: mmmmm, errrr, uuuhm. I wasn’t supposed to cross the Susquehana. Nope, I programmed Josie for the WRONG convention center. We got turned around. I missed the meeting and nearly missed a few friends.
We made it to the quilt show and stayed til nearly 6. I really enjoyed listening to Julie talk about quilts. Her enthusiasm is catching and fresh. Lisa Calle Red Velvet
Lisa Calle met us there. I love her quilt Red Velvet. It sings to my heart, this bit of artistry does. Lisa Calle Jeanne DelpitAnother bit of artistry: listening to Jeanne Delpit talk about this quilt. And I do mean artistry, she really described the balance and beauty of this quilt.  There is something really amazing that happens when someone just gets it.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post: more quilts, a feather update and more.

Have a beautiful, quilterly day!
