As you can see I rely on the old school method of throwing the binding onto the floor, just to my right, as I stitch it on the quilt.
My bags will be packed again tomorrow and I anxiously await my alter ego "Quilt Show Laurie" to arrive. She is less of a hermit than regular Laurie and she likes to wear new shoes.
My trip to Southern California was great fun and the charming ladies of the Flying Geese Quilt Guild sure know how to make someone feel welcome. After a great day teaching, we did a little road trip and saw these beauties at Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop.

Next we headed to Temecula and visited The Wool Lady......
and the Temecula Quilt Company. Fine establishments all around and I ended up buying lovely things.
The last stop of the day was the Fat Quarter Quilt Shop. I wish I had a good photo.... but just take my word for it - it's a wonderful shop.
Soon I was back home finishing up all the new quilts for International Quilt Market. This was in my quilting hoop 2 nights ago. It's finished and ready to pack.
Can I say it's my favorite group so far? Really.
I hope to post from Houston. I'll have an honest-to-god, real laptop with me and the internet better watch out! As always, follow me on Instagram for more immediate fabric thrills.
