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?
