As I write this, I'm sitting in the airport in Atlanta, GA, waiting to board a flight to Paris which will then continue on to Bangalore, India. I'm going there on business for a couple of weeks, but I have plans to hit some fabric stores while I'm there to see what I can bring back with me. Should be quite an adventure!

I've got a new quilt on the longarm and ready to start quilting on it. I made this top in one day at the quilting retreat that my wife and I went to this past weekend. It's made from two honeybuns (1.5" strips) of a fabric collection called "Kansas Winter" by the Kansas Troubles designers. It's a very easy pattern - basically you just sew the strips together end to end and then start sewing them in an ever increasingly larger rectangle. I'm going to quilt it using a pantograph design that is some vines and ivy leaves.
