Contest voting and road trip!

Almost one week into my 3 wk road trip.   Had made some serendipitous travel plans as I've been able to make a couple of unplanned quilt shops including the Missouri Quilt Star Company thanks to driving right by the exits for the stores.   Gotta love the quilt stores that can afford to advertise on billboards and that aren't very far of the US Highway/Interstate systems.     So far the fabric I've bought in the quilt shops has all had a plan for it so that is a good thing.   (We won't talk about the remnants I bought at the one quilt store or Joann's....).   Today I'm headed to TN where I'll be visiting with a quilting buddy and friend for a couple of days.   Am looking forward to fun and relaxation with her.  =)

I did behave myself because I'll be visiting a number of the shops participating in the Row-by-Row shop hop on the way home so I have to be good.  =)   There are enough shops that I'll be visiting that I can put together a quilt with them and then hopefully be the first to turn it in at a shop and when the prize for being the first there with a finished quilt.   =)  

Meanwhile, voting for this months blocks has started.   Voting goes thru tomorrow and my block is tied with the other gal that has won 6 months out of the 10 that have happened so far.  


If you would like to vote for my block (has to be done thru Facebook and you have to be logged into your account) then click here, then (after signing into FB) click on the vote button for the block that is titled "Path to the Stars".  Voting goes through the 14th.

The squares in the background that are pieced were made with the scraps of the other blocks.  I free-form pieced them from cut off triangles, shading the colors from dark to light blue and silver.  The quarter square circles were machine appliqued down.

Gratitudes:
1. Safe travels so far on my trip.

2. For the job interview that I have scheduled for Tuesday the 21st in the Dallas area.
