A quick update.....

Hey everybody!

I am trying to get into a regular blogging schedule again.
However, flying more has made this difficult.  And of course I need the funds for the house now! LOL

Flying with friends makes work a little easier!
Sally has been one of my most favorite flight attendants and friends!
Look how tired we look after flying 6 long days in a row!

There have been some fun things going on around the new house though......

I had a nice get together with the neighbors from my old development over
to see the house.  We celebrated Mike's birthday with roasted hot dogs and smores in
the fire pit.

I came into the house for something and I found my friend Mark
behind my sewing machine!
He is asking....."you really cut things apart to sew back together again????" 

There are some new additions here!
I am working on their coop now, because these little ladies will get big 

Perhaps you all could help me think of a name for my new abode?
I have been pondering what to call my little piece of heaven here.....
the best I can come up with right now is "Quilter's Homestead?"
Anyone have anything better than that???

Remember me telling you all in the last post about the mystery quilt
I was hosting at the quilt shop?
It has been such a wonderful group to be a part of!
I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting with these quilters once a month 
the past three months.  I have learned so much from all of them!

Late last year as I was waiting to get a seat on the airplane to fly home,
I was bored, and asked the gate agent for a piece of paper, and she handed me this.
I needed to doodle!

On the inside I started drawing and playing with my pen, and came up with this.
I kind of liked it, and shared it with Kelly at the shop as she had been asking me to
come up with a mystery quilt and start a scrap club.

After planning the quilt top out, and the clues, we met, and have had a fabulous time!
We had a ton of newbie quilters in the club, so we had to be somewhat elementary with
our piecing.  I am happy to say several of the quilters, old and new have shared with me how much they enjoyed various aspects of each class.  It may be because I fed them each time! LOL
The big reveal was this past week!

Here is the mystery quilt top reveal from the shop!
It is called "Going Home."
It has special significance to me since I LOVE to go home after work......
especially NOW with my NEW HOME!
For those of you who are interested, I will work up a simple to use pattern and post it here on the blog
in the future, however, for those of you who are more experienced, you can probably make it yourself.  Everything is based on 2.5" squares and strips.
No borders are on the quilt, because the quilters were asked to use
techniques learned in the class to come up with their own borders.
Get those creative juices flowing and use up some of those scraps!

I was sweating to death! LOL
You can get an idea of the type of borders I am working on for my version of the quilt.

I had so much fun with this class!  Who knows?
Maybe there will be another one down the road?

In closing, for those of you who are willing......
Sadness and tragedy struck my extended family recently.
My cousin's son, Lanny, pictured here with his wife and 4 children
was suddenly taken from this earth in a freak logging accident.
He was a good man with a good heart, and a 3rd generation logger.
Please, if I may ask, remember his wife Dottie and their children
in your thoughts and prayers?
This has been a devastating loss for our family.

Again, I want to thank ALL of you for your continued concern
in all I do!

Thanks for all of the encouragement!
Keep on quilting!
Kevin the Quilter
