Meanwhile I went to the Quilters Unlimited show in Virginia last Friday with Felicia and Pat, here are some pics:
Of course the first thing that caught my eye was this Beemer parked right at the door to the exhibit center:
we know what she does, don't we!
There were a lot of red and white quilts displayed, but this one was my all-time fav:
I hope you can see the closeup of the quilting, it's fantastic!
A few pictorials...
The door on the shed actually opens up - clever!
I didn't take too many pictures, .sometimes at quilt shows it's as though you're in a time loop... as if you've seen "this" or "that" quilt before, maybe in a different color combination or by a different quilter. Not to take anything away from the show, the quilts all came together to make a great show but... do you know what I mean?
I bought absolutely NO fabric this time, wasn't even tempted! But I did buy 3 patterns and a book, along with a ruler called The Learning Curve. It's sort of like a drunkard's path but it makes "perfect" circles. Your seams will match every time - yeah right, we'll see won't we!
We watched a demo of a fantastic tool called The Wacker - you have to read Felicia's review of this tool, when he finished we snuck around the corner and laughed our heads off!
After the show I dropped by Sandy's house for an impromptu chopping and skewering get-together. We skewered...
then we ate!
it was delicious!
That's all for now, it's such a gloomy day today I don't want to go out - I want to catch up on the blogs that I haven't read in a long time, then gotta put the nose to the needle! Sew forth and sew on til later :o)
