It is good to be home - well the show was only 20 minutes away so I came home every day, but cold and tired! I just had to sew today and finished up several blocks for QALs that came out while I was gone. Also, quilted and bound the Mini # 2 with Moose on the Porch Quilts using Konda Luckau's 'Simply Charming Minis' new book.
And while away, some very special squishies came in the mail. This was my September Doll Quilt from Joni. And love the Maple leaves and pumpkins - quilted in metalic gold thread for some sparkle. Love it and it is already hung.
And my October Doll Quilt from Barbara B - sweet pinwheels and Batiks quilted with verigated thread. Yes, that one is hanging up too - I'm on a start to my fall decor - a little behind, but getting there. Thank you so much sweet ladies!
I didn't take a single photo of the show. The day I took my camera - silly me - grabbed the 'dead' batteries instead of the newly re-charged. Over 200 lovely quilts so wonderfully displayed, but I felt so badly for them as there was a very poor turn out to the show. Alas, we vendors were tucked away in the nether-regions of the church - with NO heat (we had even fewer venture our way). I did bring home some lovelies from the silent auction (also tucked away near us). 36 FQs for a $1 apiece!
And this complete kit with the monthly patterns/fabrics for this wonderful country, scrappy quilt for $35 - be still my heart. I don't do a lot of applique, but this will be my long term project for 2013. I will share my special auction wins tomorrow - I was jumping up and down when they were handed to me.
Yes, come back Tuesday - I have to announce the winner of the Traveling Stash Box, share my lovelies and YES - it's my 2nd Blog-aversary so there will be a give away.
