Change in plans

 Liberty Science Center, Jersey City, NJ
 Hyde Park, NY (FDR National Park & Vanderbilt Mansion National Park)

 The Maritime Aquarium, Norwalk, CT
 Transit Museum in Brooklyn, NY (We took the Metro North train, the subway, & the bus. We visited Federal Hall and the African Burial Ground National Historic Sites in addition to the Transit Museum.)
 I did get some hand work done. I have tension issues with my Featherweight (can't tighten the bobbin screws enough) & the time wasn't there to work on my list of projects. I only got the rows sewn on my rail fence.

Gonna work on UFO'S

So we are headed to New York for the whole Passover Holiday. I've packed like I'm going to a retreat.
I've packed my featherweight & verified that I can make it sew. wink. I've wound about a dozen bobbins too.
1. Double 4-patch on point.
2. Double 4-patch straight set because I made far too many blocks!
3. Chinese Lanterns variant of a courthouse steps log cabin
4. I Spy for co-workers baby due in October. (I'm gonna give a quilt gift on time!)
5. Rail Fence
6. Dresden Plate - needed to mix in some hand work.

seen at a local quilt show

I go to quilt shows to be inspired, to procrastinate with meaning, to see quilts that I will never make.

Why do you go to quilt shows? or not?
