I'm sure it was a bit of a challenge to load and quilt but it will bring her lots of happy memories.

Some just can't really do "random".  You are probably one of them.relaxed

I approach random as you sew on what ever fabric you pick up unless it is the same as what you just sewed on.    Judy, in you quilt I'm not sure it would be noticed if  that orange dot was the same as one of the fabrics it touched.

I saw your pictures on FB but didn't know it was a genealogy trip.  How fun.  How many of you went?  That would be  reunion of your own.  The folk school looks very interesting.  I'll have to remember it if one of our road trips takes us in that direction.

On our recent road trip, I had prepped 3 of the Art Deco blocks to work on.  I finished 2 of them and had posted a photo of one of them previously.  

This is the second Art Deco block I finished during the trip.  In fact, one of the "lovely towns" we drove through was Mojave, CA ... a lonely desert town that really doesn't have anything to recommend itself.. EXCEPT that our very own Ami (SewingUpAStorm) has been living there, as her favorite husband works there as a space engineer (if I am remembering correctly).   

Mr. Pirate was receptive to the idea of stopping for a *BRIEF* chit-chat on our way through the town en route to our final destination.  It was totally out of the blue, as I had actually forgotten that she was there.   Our visit was only 45 minutes, as we had miles to yet travel.  However, on the return journey, we had no such time restriction and we actually spent the night at Ami's RV park, where she & I had a wonderful and lively conversation well into the night.

As we were chatting, I was working on the block below and because I was SO CLOSE to finishing it when Ami left, I simply stayed up a little longer and finished that second block.

Some of those flower petals are awesomely complex.  My mind has been boggled again.

How fortunate that you remembered that you were passing through Ami's neighborhood.

Let me say that block is even prettier in person. It was so awesome to see you two, not once but twice. 

I finished my last 4 blocks last night and am excited to put them on a design wall and continue with the quilt.

We are leaving today after Mark gets off work and will get to the Grand Canyon Friday. Both my girls are driving over so we will have a family mini vacation. Then I will be back in New Mexico for a while.

Shelley, I really like these blocks and seeing them as you do them!

Very nice!  Both the block and that you got to visit with Ami.  I'm sure she loved it.  What did the husbands do while you two were visiting?

How nice it was for you two to have a post retreat visit!  Your Block is very pretty. My husband was born in Holtville. I don’t think it’s too far from Mohave.
