Spectacular Grand Canyon reproduced in vibrant fabrics.
Another bright and exuberant quilt.
I took a photo of the wrong information card so unfortunately can't identify this quilter.
This incredible hand appliqued and quilted work of art was based around the tradition in Japan of New Year's greetings.
The quilter hand embroidered the date of the photo under each one. It was quite an astounding labor of love both close up and from a distance.
An Australian quilt with three dimensional appeal and quirk.
Love the "cake ladies" walking into the event.
Some pins dropped on the ground and were getting picked up. So funny. It was hard to get a photo of the quilt as it was very popular. I went back at a quieter time to get these shots.
Now for the Loot! Oh, it was a very happy place, the vendor area, with many satisfied shoppers clutching bulging bags (including me!).
Several items on my list of "look fors" were picked up, including TransferEze for embroidery, a snap bag pattern, Civil War prints, and some yardage for the wedding quilt.
Love those CW prints! The greens are fat eighths and are just gorgeous. The packet of precut squares are all different and will be put into 9 patches for my current UFO project of the month.
Lots of good quilty and needlework energy in these piles!
These were all bargain fabrics, and the note pads/magnets were also on sale. There were many bargains to be had and it was fun trolling through bins and boxes for them. One wool kit I purchased is not pictured because it was started immediately at Florence's house:
The booth for Primitive Gatherings was full every time I passed by, but I did squeeze myself in to purchase this table mat. Can you believe that I purposefully saved the excess from these yummy wools? I couldn't bear to throw them out.
The Steam a Seam 2 I used did not work very well in adhering the wools to the background, and limited my ability to stitch on the plane (probably because I didn't use steam!). I finally got smart about halfway round and stitched through the squares with an X using my perle cotton to keep them in place. It looks cute but won't be permanent. I'm looking forward to playing with all the other pretties but there has been no stitching since I got home!
