Hmmmm.....I hadn't thought of the flag....I was just picturing all of us in baseball caps with the TQS star over the words BOM SQUAD!
:lol:
And instead of a caravan, I think that meeting in St. Louis and taking one bus would be the way to go!!
The girls from the west can do the same thing from that side of the mountains!

I'm just having so much fun here! Margo and Bridget you both Rock!! Bridget I love the way you set up the map with photos too. I'm already imagining the road trip. I picture us all meeting up somewhere and driving into LaVeta in one long caravan with TQS BOMer's Flag (we make one) flying from each car. Can you picture it? Quilter's have great imaginations. How do you picture this trip?

Well I can't wait! Woohoo! No, I don't mind if my info is posted. I would love to get together with the other South Texans for a show and tell of our BOMs. I am in Schertz just north of San Antonio.

I live 922 miles (14 hrs) from La Veta. I would be happy to car pool. Depending on when we get to go, I might even be able to talk my fiance' in flying me (and 3 or 4 others who are game) to La Veta. From his place in OKC it is only 540 miles (9 hrs by car maybe 1/2 that by plane.) Looks like they have a little airport there.

Just checked Mapquest and I am 1024.54 Miles and driving time 16 hours and 6 minutes plus stops and shop hopping. :wink:

Will depend on dates and coordinating trip with DH.

Sounds like a blast for sure!!!!!!

Thanks 17 Aug 2008 20:26 #24354

I hope I am able to make the BOM party. I just finished the August block except for the embroidery which I hope to do tonight watching the Olympics. Thanks to all of you for posting so much information and ideas about getting together as well as all of your quilting techniques. I feel like this is a new friendship group! Thanks for all of your encouragement and enthusiasm.
My DH might play golf, but he also gets really skittish around quilters as he may not want to attend.

Does anyone's DH play golf? It would be great if the guys could have something entertaining to do also.

Count me in!! Sign me up!! Put me on the map!! I hope the TQS gurus are watching this to see that there really IS this amount of excitement and committment to this idea! Google tells me I'm 1757 miles away, I've certainly never driven that far but that doesn't mean I couldn't or wouldn't! (although flights could be ok too IF we could get dates ASAP to get tickets early enough!) If TQS could have a hand in this they could likely get us a decent group hotel rate, I know they said earlier that show attendees likely have to stay in Pueblo, there just isn't much closer that's big enough and the show guests fill up what's available in LaVeta...
When I first mentioned this to DH he said "sure, we could go, sounds like fun" which kind of took me aback, I didn't think he'd want to join in-- who knows it could be a whole family thing, I'm sure Curious George will want to come, since he says he's going to live in CO. when he grows up-- just like Ricky.
Anyway, if there was a mini-meeting somewhere in the mid-Atlantic I'd do that too... Connie, where in NC are you? my MIL is in NewBern so we get there a few times a year...

Wow! Thank you Bridget and Margo. The map is really awesome. It was really fun to see where everyone is from and there are some new faces that I hadn't seen before. So to all of those, WELCOME!
