warning: non-quilty - non-fabric(y) and not at all related to TQS - but a bit about me and what I do...

as many of you know - i work in a company that makes medical devices - mainly stuff for the heart (Diagnostics: ECG / Pulmonary / Blood Pressure / and related as well as special patient monitors which can be used with the MRI). besides the Diagnostic devices, we also make "stuff" for resuscitation, mainly defibrillators, patient monitors ideal for the rescue service, and a mechanical CPR device. In Switzerland the phone number to call for Emergency Services is 144 - therefore the 14th of April 14.4. is "Action-Day-Rescue-Services" where many Rescue Services have special events for the public to show what they do and make their services more accessible. Our subsidiary responsible for Sales in Switzerland (I work for the headquarters where we do the R&D, Manufacturing and Global Marketing) recently moved into new premises and together with two Rescue Services "Alpinmedic" and "AAA Alpine Air Ambulance" they put on an event at their new location. of course we from the headquarters stuck our nose in and got to visit as well. yes - it was April - but actually it felt a heck of a lot more like February with snow in the morning followed by a cold and very wet day. Luckily there was not too much fog and we managed to have a helicopter visit for part of the afternoon.
unfortunately it was too cold and wet for us to do live Resuscitation Demos with the visitors. but a helicopter simulator, a helicopter jumping tent, yummy saussages, tasty cake, and various ambulances and an emergency doctors' car were of great interest. it's no often that one can walk into / sit inside and explore an ambulance with paramedics and doctors to explain how everything works. as we cannot publish people's faces without their express permission, unfortunately not really pictures showing these. but I think you can get an impression of our day.

I'm glad to hear Robin is moving to Sisters. Now she'll be closer to me!

Sharon, if you need help with placement for your parents please PM me. I used to work in Long Term Care and can help. And I'd love to see you next summer when you are driving through.

Eileen, your piece from the MQX is lovely! It is good to be on the upside. :cheer:

Barb, it is a small world. Especially for us!

take care, geneva

Robin Gold told me she was moving to the Sisters area. I am so jealous, but I told her now I have even more reason to get my butt out there to see the show.

You guys are the best therapy I need right now. Feeling frustrated with the health system for older folks, etc. But enough about that.

Geneva, we are flying into Seattle, but plan to drive there next (2020) summer. But my goodness you are such a creative quilter!! Wanted to let everyone know that Robin Gold is moving to the Sisters area next month. Her hubby retired and this is where they wanted to settle.

Eileen, the heart is beautiful!

You guys are all so dang creative. Thanks for the lovely comments.

Sharon in, finally no snow, Colorado!!

Your piece from the workshop is really interesting.
Glad that things have gotten more balance for you.

Just went through everyone's posts, and people have been busy! Geneva, you are so right! I feel like a piece of my heart has been restored. Your quilt is really great-I love your color combinations.
Lotti, I hope the weather has been cooperating with what you need to do. Has anything begun to bloom near you?
Sharon!! WooHoo! You are on fire with your quilting.
As much as you want to help your Mom's husband, take your time with the placement. We were really burned by one place because we were short on time placing my mother. I honestly believe if she hadn't gone there, she might still be with us. She didn't have any dementia, but got overwhelmed and frightened very quickly.

Well, I'm home from MQX, and this was the best one ever! I took classes for the Intelliquilter system on my longarm, one on my Scan n Cut, and a wonderful class with Sarah Vederler, the creator of the 2012 TQS BOM. She is a delightful and patient teacher. There was also an exhibit of 30 of Sue Garman's machine quilted quilts. I thought her daughters would be at the show, but they weren't. Several of our BOMs were on display, and I just kept walking through the exhibit and remembering them all. Hubby and I helped with show take down and we got to help pack Sue's quilts back up for shipping. I got kind of emotional, knowing that I may not get to see them in person again. Makes me realize that I have to finish what I start. With all Sue had going on during those last years of her life, she still found time to finish many, many quilts.

Here's what I created in Sarah's class:

Thank you everyone for the nice compliments. :kiss:

Barb, my husband spent some time at the college in Ellensburg. He liked it. Ellensburg is our half way stop point when we are driving over to Seattle. It's a nice little town.

Wendy, Here's how I made the wonky rows. I made two 4" drunkard paths of the same solid color on the skinny side, one with the white on the big melon side and one with black on the melon side. I sewed them together along the color side and ended up with a rectangle 4" x 7 1/2", Then I sliced a little angle off different sides of the rectangles and sewed them together. Then I trimmed the outside edges to make a straight border I could sew to the same background color. (White or black). Here's a close up.

Have a good week everyone! geneva
