What a Fabulous Friday!!!

Today was such a special treat for me!
with my wonderful friend Amy :)

Can you believe the detail work in this applique quilt?
I really want to try to do applique this year...
but certainly not something of this scale!

This quilt was amazing in person!!!

I managed to get a picture of Amy shopping.
I got in trouble twice for taking pictures
in vendor's booths.
I didn't want to steal their patterns,
I just wanted pics of their beautiful work,
but I totally understand why they have to say no to photos.

Amy and I spent some time admiring
the many quilted vests & jackets worn
by the ladies at the convention.

Maybe we should wear some next year.....?

Or not?

I picked up a few patterns
and a couple of templates
and received a free f/q with one purchase.

I had a wonderful time!
So many beautiful things to see and buy.....
but I promised the hubby I'd be good :)
And tonight is the Friday Night Sew In
so I'll be working on my Hideaway quilt.

And just a reminder
that I'll be picking a winner at random
 for Week #3
of the After Christmas Sew Along
tonight at 10:00pm and posting the winner
tomorrow morning!

  3. Love the Babushuka table topper! Looks like you had fun! I can't wait until July!

  4. yeah! my feet are only relatively sore but not so that it prevented me from taking the dogs for a walk out in that sleet storm when I got home.
