Just checking in to say hello from Ontario, CA. My trip on Wednesday was fine — planes on time, baggage that arrived when it was supposed to, etc, etc, etc…The only real problem was that on both trips the gentlemen sitting in front of me chose to recline for most of the trip. I was wedged in pretty tight. Yuck. Plus, I dropped my bag of M&Ms and couldn’t reach it thanks to being so tightly stuffed into my seat.
The quilt is show is HUGE! Lots of really beautiful quilts and tons of great vendors. And lots of friendly faces, too. It’s always so much fun to meet people that I’ve gotten to know online. Yesterday morning I was walking along and saw a quilt hanging in a booth and thought “Wow, that looks just like the quilt that is on the front cover of Judy‘s book.”
As I got closer, I realized that it was, in fact, THE quilt from the front of her book, and she was sitting underneath it signing books!
The weather Wednesday night was crazy (we heard on the news that some of the gusts were over 100 MPH), but it is nice to be warmer (and less snowy) than it is back in Iowa. My poor husband had to go home early Wednesday to pick up a sick child, and got to stay home yesterday thanks to a snow day. Hopefully he’ll get some work done today before the long weekend.
We are getting ready to go eat some breakfast and then head over for another busy day. I think I heard that winners will be posted on the Road to California website sometime today.
Enjoy the California sunshine and warmth. We’ve got subzero windchills in the midwest for the weekend — so, if you can stay there until Monday, do it!

Glad to hear you’re having a great time. It’s teeth chattering chilly in Iowa. Brrr. Good thing we make quilts to keep us warm.
I wasn’t sure if this was a good space for a question, but if you have time… All your quilts are so beautiful. I’m a beginning quilter and I know a lot of this has to do with experience, but I cannot for the life of me consistently match up my seams for squares and such. Half the time they do, half the time it’s too far to one side and it won’t match up my blocks. Do you have any tips?
