Yes, I guess we would need to establish criterion such as:
1. Does the quilt need to be finished? As in sandwiched AND quilted? or
2. Just the blocks completed? or
3. Do they need to ALL be completed? or....................
maybe there doesn't need to be ANY criterion! Just a desire to come and commune together.
Well....it looks like this ball is rolling and picking up speed!!!
FYI...Lilo has offered to help with arrangements at that end, but like I said, dates won't be firmed up until next spring.
She said that Walsenburg is an option, as the cast and crew of TQS pretty much take over LaVeta.
I don't think that we should say no to ANYONE who wants to join us, but depending on the total number of participants, and the fact that there are only 40 seats available for each taping segment, we might need to set a criterion for that.
There are 57 members who have posted at least one block, but because my Webshots album has had almost 28,000 hits already, :shock: I have a feeling that there are a few more who are making blocks that haven't been posted!!! (Either that, or some poor soul REALLY needs to get a life!!! LOL!!!)
There are also some who have already said they want to join us who haven't started yet!
At any rate, I hope that whoever comes will bring their blocks, or tops or finished quilts with them.
What a photo op that will be!!!
LOOK OUT LAVETA, THE TQS BOMettes ARE HEADED YOUR WAY!
(And thanks to 13Roses for coining the term!)
It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter
That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived !
Count me in!!! I can't wait! I wonder if there will be enough BOMettes coming from Texas to fill a bus or maybe a rental van? Just a thought. This is so exciting, Sept 09 will be here before we know it! WandaM in hot Shiner TX
I think I remember something from an earlier opportunity to get tickets for a taping, that there really isn't much in LaVeta in the way of hotels, and they fill what there is w/ all the crew & guests, so we might need to stay in the next large town... can't recall which that is, but maybe about an hour away ?? Then we could get a charter bus for the daily drive down to La Veta.
I'm in, Good Lord Willing! So far, still on schedule w/ the blocks! It'd be great if Lilo or Pat could step in to help w/ arrangements... hint, hint
Well, you can definitely count ME in on this trip! Having been to one taping, I guarantee you will find the trip worth the time, effort, and $$ -- I had soooo much fun there! More importantly, I think it would be an absolute blast to meet all of you. It's been so much fun to read the forum postings when I get the chance to, and I would enjoy hooking up faces to each of the names and beautiful quilt blocks that I've been viewing. You all are the best!
I'd love to go, and will put it on my calendar -- although I'm in the same boat of needing to start my BOM! I have all the fabric & even have 4 months of heat & bond marked, with the intention of machine appliquing this project -- and now my sewing machine is still in the shop. I may have to go to needleturn in frustration! But I definitely will make this quilt, and would love to meet you all!
Oh, I'm definately in for this one! Caught up on blocks. Feel like I already know each of you! Want to know more. What do we share in common? How are we so very different we could never imagine being friends? But nonetheless, here we are!
What fun. Yes, a big hotel, and I'm sure La Veta has dozens! ha
A B&B will probably have to do! Maybe several B&Bs.
How fun! We need to be sure to allow plenty of time to visit with each other. We'll have to see if there is a hotel big enough for all of us and maybe with a hospitality room or something.
But I have a problem - I haven't even started my BOM yet!!! I do intend to, though
Well, get going already! :shock: I would love to go, as well. Just have no idea where I will be - Wisconsin? Arkansas? California? Somewhere in-between? I am really getting tired of being a gypsy. But DH is always up for a road trip. Maybe we'll bring our RV that we bought 3 years ago and still haven't used, even once! lol That is, if the gas ever comes down... oh, that's right, that's another thread!
