I missed last week's WIP Wednesday post. I had just gotten home from visiting my daughter Lisa in San Diego for her 30th birthday, and I forgot all about it until the next day. So I'm doing a little catch-up. By the way, I will post about my trip soon.

Every Seven Minutes Quilt
Railroad Crossing Blocks

San Diego Trolley
Inspiration for Every Seven Minutes Quilt
On several trips I stayed in a motel next to a trolley stop. Trolleys came every 14 minutes, but traveled in both directions. So, about every seven minutes I'd hear warning bells.

Above: 16 strip sets for the Railroad Crossing blocks. I made these during my trip, with my toaster-sized Janome Sew-Mini sewing machine. It's slow but gets the job done. At 1" x 3" the strips mimic the dimensions of the trolley cars, which are about 3 times longer than they are high.

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) finished and mailed

Received today from ATC Swap Partner Suzanne R. of Clinton, Utah.
They're beautiful. I love them! My favorite is the bottom left with the little flowers.

Since I got back from my trip I've been trying to catch up on bookkeeping. I should start quilting again by the weekend.
