We got back from Minnesota Monday afternoon and had a wonderful getaway! We spent a few days with Builder Bob’s mom, then went to the Kenny Rogers concert with both of his daughters and their husbands as a treat for his birthday.  You can’t do a getaway without stopping at a quilt store and this time we finally got to Red-Roxy Quilt Co. in Decorah, Iowa.

Roxanne Schnitzler & her daughter Jessica Rediske are the owners and it was so nice to finally meet them. Last year I designed their Row by Row Experience pattern. Builder Bob was spotted before I was……I think he is starting to feel like he is famous! Roxanne said “I know you, you’re Builder Bob!”

Did you happen to notice the quilt hanging to the left of us…….that is my Country Birds pattern! It was so neat to walk in and see it hanging up there.

I had to pick up a few things……some Island Batik fabric….no surprise there! Aurifil thread in a couple nice neutral colors, a paper piecing pattern and also a little Christmas ornament kit.

I think I gained 10 pounds while we were gone…….lots of great food and drinks! This was chicken and ribs in Fairbault, MN….yummy!

We spent the weekend in Clear Lake, Iowa and went to the Kenny Rogers concert.

It was great! Isn’t that interesting to see a selfie…..look at the sign….it is backwards!

We are finally having some nice weather…..notice everyone is still wearing sweatshirts….but at least we are out by the river.Spring by the Mississippi riverThis is a photo from last February when I was getting ready to send off my quilts to Island Batik. Notice the ice on the river….it was cold that day!

The quilts will be in Island Batik’s booth at Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, Utah this week. Island Batik will have the patterns available for quilt stores and are also doing trunk shows so I won’t see my quilts again until next year. I will also have patterns available shortly.

    I kept going back to the picture of yours quilts near the river. Beautiful! What is the name of each of the patterns? Are they available on line yet?
