Felicia, her friend Jackie and our friend Gwen from the Wee Bee.
It was a wonderful show and, as usual, we made a bee line for the vendors to see what was new, unusual or that we couldn't live without!
I'm pleased to say I only made two purchases - 5 fat quarters and a bag of batik scraps!
I liked this quilt, it's definitely going on my "gotta make one day" list!
I like it's "modern" flavor a lot; the fabrics weren't all solid though, mostly small prints.
I saw three quilts from workshops by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville:
Jamestown Landing, Virginia Bound...
and look! They already made my black and white Strip Twist!
Circles, we were surrounded by circles!
This selvedge spiderweb intrigued me:
closeup! see that border treatment?
I've been saving selvedges a long time but I don't have that many. When I feel I have enough I'll either make something out of them or give em away to a good home!
We saw some beautiful quilts and the show was great but we wanted to get off our feet and besides - it was munch time!
After debating whether we "should have bought this" or "maybe I don't really need that" we drove over to Famous Dave's BBQ for some well deserved lunch!
I pigged out (forgive the pun!) on bbq spare ribs and chopped pork, yum!
My grand plan for the rest of the afternoon was to settle down for a nice nap when I got home, but I got two phone calls and yadda yadda yadda - I was wide awake. Oh well.
I didn't show you very many quilts, did I? There were gobs of pretty quilts and I have more to show you that I'll spread out over the next few posts. I'm thinking a whole bunch of pictures might make the page load too slow (does anyone still use dial-up? Do they even have it anymore???)
Well, that's it for now, get out and enjoy your Sunday, sew forth and sew on til later!
