Quilt Show Shopping

Yes I did shop a little bit!
Some fabric, books and patterns along with the wonderful Superior Thread.
Saw so much more I wish I could have loaded up in my bag but alas money ran out before my wants list did! Hahaha!

Above pic is a lovely French General Rouenneries Deux layer cake by Moda.
A Spring runner or sofa quilt maybe... not sure if for this year or not!;-)
Yes it is on the Irish runner top all done.
It may be taking a 'dye' bath today...white is too bright for my tastes!

These are from The Fieldstone House booth.
You quilt show shoppers know..the guy with the sign on his back..'line forms behind me'! haha!
Top fabric bundle is a very nice dark rust red color combo.
Next bundle is Maison de Garance by French General.
The fabric bundles work so well together!
A very pretty option for a Fall quilt.
Bought a few more fats but they are gifts so not showing them!;-)

These two are to make Diana a quilt show wallet.
I believe this is part of an older Moda line from Blackbird Designs.
She is a wonderful cross stitcher and now does awesome stitchery!
I made Alice , Liz and me one last year.

This lusciousness came from the French Connection !
It is table cloth fabric.
Fits in with my toile and the soft pale yellow color.
Diana had purchased one 2 0r 3 yrs ago.
We have been looking for another one since then for me.

Books and patterns.
Buggy Barn.. love them and Alice is going to help me with the paper piecing!
Connecting Threads snowman. Right size to hang on the fireplace side.
Art to Heart with a slew of small letter or number quilts or in my case small flags.

Lastly Bunny Hill Designs Merry Merry Snowman!

Here is is done up! SWEET!
Just wanted the pattern, not monthly kits, as I will do it with my stash fabrics.
Plan to use the machine applique mostly .
Thinking my snow folks may be wool ones!

We did have a grand time looking at what was offered and enjoyed it as much as ever!
From Traditions of the White Swan, Attic Heirlooms, Fieldstone House, Superior Threads, Fabric Cafe, Calico Corner, Cottonwood, French Connections, and SEW MANY MORE!!
Hope to see ya next year!!!!!!
