Monday Making


Well, I survived the weekend EQF show!  We even traveled home both nights in snow storms - yes, still snowing here in NY.  I was surprised by some wins at the show.  The little Temecula Quilt Co miniature took first place.

I didn't get to take a lot of photos as very busy either in our guild booth or helping in areas of the show, but that was a good thing as my camera and I take some horrible pictures.

  
Example - horrible photo.  Very surprised with this one which not only place in it's catagory but received...


the Judge's Choice Award.  That's back-to-back shows winning this award.  Pressure!! This pattern is one I tested for Bea Lee and it is available on her web site.

The show had two traveling exhibits - Hoffman Challenge and the Susan B Anthony 2020 challenge which facinated me.  This might interest some of you as individuals or even your guild to participate in.  Please check out their web site HERE.'

Of course I bought fabric - there were lots of vendors!  I fell in love with this panel - The Hatters Tea Party!


The Gold and Pink Grunge are to play with the Hatter panel and the homespun is going into another project.


These I bought off a guild's booth table.  The brown is a 6 yrd piece of vintage and I will use for a backing on my Burgoyn Surrounded.  The blue with tiny apples (more apples) is another vintage and 3 yrds!  These were only $1 yrd each - who could pass that up?  The only piece of cheddar I found in the entire show, too.  A FQ from another guild's sale table - 50 cents.

I have to unpack the car today.  Somewhere there is a bag filled with FQs that another guild booth was lowering thruout the day just to empty the table.  I was breaking down our booth and asked them to throw the left overs in a bag and I would take them all - they gave them to me for a $1 for the bag.  I don't know how many are in there or what there even is, but they will definitely get used.

I have my pieces for some of the little border blocks for the Debbie Mumm Sampler by my machine, so maybe I will get a few of those made while I sort out things from the show.   And more snow is predicted for today!

Spring?  Where are you?
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  13. Congrats on the ribbons! Very fun, even more so if they weren't expected. Sounds like you've got some fun new fabrics to play with. Snow? It's been warm here, maybe spring will show up there soon too.
