Ah, Heck! I remember it, too. And - I remember doing 85 - legally or not.

Wow what a chatty group this morning.

That is way too fast for me to drive. Can't imagine going 85, I have trouble just doing 55 to 60. Now when I was younger it would have been no problem but now eyesight and reactions don't warrant any fast speeds.

Sure am glad I already got some of the Luminence fabrics and a kit. As for reruns, CT did bring back several lines of late. Perhaps again there will be a second run?

So glad everyone is safe after all the craziness of the past few days. Thanks for the smiles this morning , Mari. We sure needed them.

I remember that saying, Mary Agnes.

85 Miles Per Hour!!!  85? Now that sounds like my kinda driving.

You're so funny, Barbara, I forgot to laugh.  (A quick retort that passed as sarcasm 50 years ago)

Just checked Jinny Beyer's reference The Quilters Album of Patchwork Pieces. I found nothing called Flying Geese that matches either Mari's February Little or LLBean's quilt.  Lots of HST's, of course, but I found only one with all of them oriented in the same direction and that was made with two colors only--Litter Cedar Tree (Kansas City Star, 1938) and Seesaw (The Perfect Patchwork Primer, 1973).  I could have missed something but it looks like Mari's pattern if totally original and LLBean is a copycat!!

Good morning all!

Anne, how wonderful to have your little on the LLBean catalog.  I should be getting mine soon.  

Well I just entered into another 2 year contract with Verizon with my upgraded iPhone.  I also love them because of their dependability in this area.  They are actually faster than my satillite internet access with Hughes for the house. Even watching my sewing videos on YouTube are filtered, and can take much longer to see them.  Seriously thinking of just getting their little Wifi device to have at home as well for my computer, tablet and ebook reader. I think in time I'll switch to a TracPhone myself.  All these fees for this and that are just becoming crazy. 

So happy it's almost April and time to start watching Outlander on Starz.  I love that series.  I think I'm in love with the Scottish accents when they speak.  

Worked on my little last night and it's all put together.  Goodness, I had to fudge in those FG as they tend to be stretchy, despite starching the heck out of the fabric before I cut it out.

Not sure what I'm doing for Easter yet. Maybe I'll just make a big batch of chili rellenos again.  Just dawned on me, already sinned by eating a nice bacon, onion, bell pepper, and cheese omelet. Bummer!  I've had oatmeal all week, wanted something good today.   At least I have tuna salad for sandwiches later.

Yes, I'm here.  That bridge is about 100 miles north of me.  I-35 has been in some sort of construction ever since we moved here in '97.  It's never ending.  Here in Texas, there are many places where trucks are not allowed in the left lane, but for some reason not in all the construction sites.  There is a toll road that goes around Austin and it costs about $8 for the whole trip.  Well worth the money and the speed limit on that part is 80 mph.  It also extends from there over to I-10 where we live and the speed limit on that is 85mph.  I use it when ever we go to see DS and the rest of the family.  I can set my cruise and off I go.

I think Mari called it the February Little. (HeeHee)

That's amazing Anne.  It definitely is Mari's quilt design.  LLBean says it's a traditional pattern called Flying Geese.  I had to resist a very strong urge to write them and tell them they are wrong, but then I asked myself what is Mari's pattern called?  Anyone know?  

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC 7 hours ago

Good Morning.

Lynne posted on FB a picture of the bridge that collapsed near her in TX. She is fine.  And Kathy Briggs was worrying about Froggie on her FB page.  I told her she's as feisty as ever and unhurt by the storms.

I've got Verizon because its reception is most dependable, even in elevators.  But I had to keep my landline so I could have WiFi at home for Internet and Roku.  Boy, they have you coming and going, don't they?

Sheila, I think we were being too literal in our understanding about Anne's Littl. There is a picture of a quilt made with hsts that looks a lot like the little quilt we made. They call it a flying geese quilt though.
