Thought I would show my loot first, and the show pictures later this week.
I got a few select items like superior topstitch titanium machine needles as they are WONDERFUL. Some superior threads to try, masterpiece and fantastico.
A free book, and magazine when rejoining the group and a $5 book of patterns.
Look at those tiny scissors with attached cover in PINK, only 2" and sharp.
We talked to the Featherweight sales people who told us what supplies I needed to fix up my new/old machine. The owner pulled my husband aside and told him to trade his mechanical services for pies.
After going to the show, I visited some local fabric stores that had terrific deals. Like this, batiks for $5.99 a yard.
It was Peer Pressure.
I was holding the bolt of the turquoise and saw two women had collected all these other colorways of the same print. One I like a lot. They said they were making stars with the same print changing color!
Me too! I don't know y'all but I know you all in my heart.
Then the reddish one is really brown and totally a tree! The fans just so pretty.
At the next stores I found more cool can't leave it behind fabric at terrific prices. At Zooks I found the flamingos and these...
The picture looks gray but it's black black.

They are taking so long to load I made a few smaller.
This one is marbled and it's so like a tree! I love making tree quilts....
Can you tell the top fabric here is gradation colors of gray? Cool!
They are all darker in real life than seems here. These are so unique I couldn't resist them even at 12 bucks a yard. I left two others, hoping to see them later at the shops but no. They got away.
The ones here on the left are all Stonehenge by northcot.
Love love love.
The one on the right is awesome... looks impressionistic like water with water lilies. Shades of blue, green and flowers/rocks will be perfect for my Seurat.
Will I cut into them? It's due Thursday so look for Friday's post.
The last one is a brown stripe with bright colors. Perfect for an Adirondak quilt biniding! And at $3 a yard, another bargain.
Linking to MollieSparkles for Fabric Sundays!
