"Last week I visited a friend near Lake Michigan.  She is not a quilter but was kind enough to take me to two quilt shops that she had found.  I ended up buying 2 yards.  So, that's in, minus 1/4 yd out.  Went to the AQS…"

"Quilt Day at a friends house was yesterday.  One gal in the group decided she needed fabric for a project so, of course, we all had to go to the quilt shop.  This was one I had never been in.  In 1 2/3 yds, 1/2 yd out. "

Hi Jan, I went to Trix grade school, Gabriel Richard Jr high and Osborn High School. It's fun to meet up with someone who knows some of the same history.

Jan, what Schools did you attend? Meeting up would be so cool.

Hi Jan, I'm not sure where Fowlerville is. I grew up in Detroit. I have a brother who lives in Holly and a brother and sister in Macomb. Michigan is a beautiful state. I have a cousin in Stevenville and an aunt in Benton Harbor. Maybe we will cross paths some day.

Thanks, Jan.  I post a lot of pictures of my work as I sew along.  You can also keep up with Aura and my other projects on my blog, Curlicue Creations.

Thank you, Jan for your lovely comment on my Aura quilt.  The positive feedback helps me to keep on sewing.  It's great to meet you.  Have a super day!
