Quilt Show purchases......

The quilt show was really fun this weekend and a big thanks to all who volunteered their time to help put the show on this year.

Now... on to my purchases! I tried to get something from each of our vendors...I do apologize to Julie from Cowles in St. Albans Vermont for not getting a sewing machine... but I did get a bunch of thread from you within the last couple of months and need to schedule a cleaning of my machine in the next month or two =).
From Quilters Quisine in Newport, Vermont I got these pretty FQ's.

From Country Thyme Vermont in Derby Vermont - I got this little bundle of batik's from the shop hop the last couple of weekends. Very pretty blue, purple and green's.

Forever Bloom in St. Albans had Kathie Alyce there for a book signing on Saturday and I got there right at the end of the show. Turns out... she lives a few doors down from my sister in Plainfield, VT! I'm looking forward to playing with this book and template and have some fabrics in mind for my first project. Thanks Jonnie and Kathie for the inspiration.


From Lois Kenney Designs in Maine I got this beautiful pin and earrings (sorry - they are upstairs - will take a picture of them later) and calendar. The photos are done by her and her partner Don. Very beautiful and I am hanging the calendar in my sewing room once this post is done!



From Yankee Pride in Essex, Vermont I got these two kits. The first is a 58x76 Diamond Chain Quilt Kit in beautiful batiks - blues with a little purple and teal. The second is a bag that contain everything you need to make the bag! It is a Spring Seminole Bag Kit in purple and pink batiks.



Next time there will be quilt photo's - I promise! Seems like the almost 2YO (How can she be turning 2 on Thursday already?) does not want a normal nap and is awake and waiting for me to get her out of her crib. So...no sewing for me today.
Have a great Monday everyone.
