What can I say? It's not a plus!


We went to a Quilt Show at a Garden Center. It was a new experience and I enjoyed it very much except for the fact that I did not wear proper shoes or in this case, boots! I never thought of the floor being cold, my feet were numb by the time we were done!

This row was all the same applique and all set very differently. Just goes to show you how you can make any pattern your own!

 Again, these next 3, same pattern, very different fabrics! I thought I would remember the designer but the brain got too full! 

A couple of the Twister patterns.......

These feathered stars were beautiful.

A quilt made from the Minnesota Quilt Hop fabric goes on my list. I think I have 4 of these charm packs tucked away.

And of course no Quilt Show would be complete without a little fabric therapy.

We headed to lunch and to thaw my feet. Chinese!!! So feeling full, warm and revitalized we headed to the Quilt Shops.

First up, All in Stitches. One of my favorites! The purchases made here.
These are Quilt Sticks. There are aslo videos on You Tube to watch.  My SIL gave me 2 for Christmas and I was not too sure about them until I used them. When you cut many strips the same size they are wonderful. They DO NOT slip at all! So today I picked up the 3 1/2" and the 5" because it seems many of my borders are those sizes. I would still like the 4" but these will do for now!

...and 5 1 yard cuts, the gray dot is actually much prettier than in the photo and I have had a thing for gray lately.

Our last stop was Fourth and Main, did a little more damage there.
These are what they call "6 Packs" - 6 -  2/3 yards cuts, all coordinated and you get a free pattern with each one. Of course, I already have the 6 patterns but can't resist them! It makes a 48" by 48" quilt with binding included.  It always adds a decent amount to stash and it is enough to do something with when the mood strikes!


A couple of clearance pieces, it is never to early to stockpile Christmas fabrics.

Wonderful day, wonderful friends and wonderful buys. What more could a girl ask for!

As Always,



  1. it looks like it was a lovely time--the applique aisle--the flower quilts look great. Is there any way you can find out what pattern they used?

    I LOVE chinese food--poor Ken gets drug along and has to humor me once in a while.

  2. What a great post - thanks for the photos from the quilt show. I just love that one that looks like a dresden plate variation. Could it be by Edyta Sitar? Ask your friend, please. What yummy fabric you bought and you're still in de-stashed land - woohoo!
