Kansas City and Hamilton! MO


This past week I got to take a little trip to Kansas City, MO to deliver quilts to friends.

(Is it ok to have feet on the SIDE of square quilts?)

The quilts were made for the daughters of my dear friend Dee who passed away last November.  The family was our first friends when we moved to Houston back in 1988 and we've remained close all these years.  I thought Texas themed quilts would be appropriate to remind the girls of their mom and our former home in Texas.

Both girls live in Kansas City now.  Here they are with their quilts,


While there, my dear husband suggested we go on to Hamilton! MO, home of Missoiri Star Quilt Company.  

I might have fed my craving for fabric.  Just a little.

Then, we visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City.  My grandfather fought in the trenches in France and the museum really brought that to the forefront of my thinking.  Freedom is not free!  Grandpa never talked about it but now I think I understand why he was so quiet. The museum is well worth the trip.

what fun to get to visit the quilt shop.
There is a memorial in VA that I visited a couple years ago. It made me cry.

Wow what a sweetie of a husband you have. Maybe next time I head to Missouri I can
convince the husband I need to swing by Hamilton, MO. before going on down the road to Trenton.
Love the Texas themed quilts! Lucky girls
