The quilt show was a great success! I was surprised at how many adult males I had to tell nicely 'please don't touch the quilts, if you'd like to see the back or a closer look I'd be happy to show you'... There were signs posted everywhere saying that! Oh well, they were appreciating the quilts at least. It is a free event and everyone is given a slip of paper to vote on their favorite quilt in each category... bed, minature, wall hanging, childrens, breast cancer charity quilts and a special VT quilt from last years mystery BOM. The coveted mayors award was given....I was wondering who he was since he and his wife and 2 boys kept walking around and around.....then when he went to get the president of the guild for the presentation it all became clear...! I forgot to bring my camera so don't have pictures...
I did purchase some fabrics.. I just love this pattern of leaves on the fabric and have some blue and purple already.... and added these neutral/browns to my stash! These are 10 fat quarters of the new line out this spring. I also got these 3 half yard cuts.. the blue I just had to have, and the green and berry I thought would go well with my UFO of maple leafs.. that I need to get to sometime this year!
Here is a close up of the leaves on the fabric, it is really the same color type as the fabric and blends in....This is from the Robert Kaufman line of Fusions. Sccreen Print D#5573... for Hazel!
Aidan has been a bit fussy and was running a low fever last night and this morning. He is sounding stuffed up now, so I guess I need to use the blue thing to clear out his nose, poor guy.
Yesterday afternoon, he started smiling more and I was able to get a shot... a little blurry, I know!
