I then stopped at a table to sign up to be contacted by our local quilting guild...Homemaker's Country Quilters. I would really love to be involved with a guild. I may not be able to make every meeting, but I sure would love to try!
And now for the things I just couldn't help purchasing!!!!!
As I said, I did purchase some things...but they were WELL worth the cost. First up, a bag of scraps purchased from a quilt shop that is not too far away; and I never knew they existed!
LAST BUT NOT LEAST.....Patterns! They had the largest selection of patterns I have ever seen...ANYWHERE...and they were all dirt cheap, ranging from $.50 to $1.50. What a savings!
|My favorite in this grouping is the Christmas quilt on bottom right.|
|My favorite in this grouping is the party bags. I think I will make them in colors to match my sewing room and store my small rulers in the bags!|
|My favorite in this grouping is the teapot table runner.|
OH MY GOODNESS....THE QUILTS!!!!!!!!!!
And, last but not least...I will leave you with some samples of the gorgeous quilts they had on display. Oh to someday be that good!
|The flags were actually real little flags slipped into a pocket!|
|These aprons were adorable! I have come to the conclusion that I really like 3-D quilts...probably why I am so inclined to use buttons on my quilts!|
|This is my favorite little quilt! I just love COTTAGES!|
Oh, by the way, my Stitcher's Pocket Pouch was a hit! I was stopped by several people and asked if I made it. They loved the idea to empty my hands for examining quilts, etc. (with gloves of course) but REALLY loved it when I explained that I originally designed it to keep track of my notions while sewing! I may have to see if I can take this idea further!
