Viola’s Garden and Create a Connection

Just a quick post this morning to tell you to be sure to run over to Create a Connection to see the nice interview that Deb of Red Shoe Ramblings did with me. She is the guest interviewer this month.

We are on our way to San Francisco to have dinner with Lili, Mark and Jayme, tonight. Then, on to Portland on Wednesday. I hope the rain isn’t too bad.

Here is what I accomplished in the desert, besides finishing the binding on Fragments. It is Viola’s Garden, a quilt for my great niece. She is Mike and Ann’s first grandchild.violasgarden.jpg

I guess I am not so pointless, afterall!!

    I just finished reading Deb’s interview and also looking at your beautiful quilts. I’m in awe of your talent, so many beautiful things- including this baby quilt. Gorgeous!

    A beautiful baby quilt. I love the colors you used. The baby will love being wrapped in such a nice quilt. I will check out your interview.

    I loved your interview with Deb. Very inspiring. I have seen your daughters’ blogs before. I love that all your children are creative (as really we all are at our core, but it is so so nice they embrace it!) My children are very young and I wonder what effect my constant creating will have on them…hopefully a good one!

    I loved the interview – you both did a great job. Thanks for sharing all the photos of the desert. I travelled to the California desert on business a long time ago, and remember how fascinating the Joshua trees were to me. Your niece is lucky to start out with such a pretty quilt.

    You are such an inspiration….productive no matter where you are!!! Another great Gerrie quilt!!
    So, are you sending me a shopping list for you or for me for Trader Joes? LOL
    I’d be interested to know what your faves are there, as it will be pretty much an entirely new experience for me.
    Hope you have a safe trip home and a wonderful stop in SF.
