What's a quilt show without a fabric purchase??
I met up with Mari, a blogging friend who recently moved to PA. Her blog is academicquilter.blogspot.com/
We look happy don't we?? It was such a gift to become acquainted with a kindred spirit! Mari is just adorable and it was so much fun to walk around with her, commenting, shopping and seeing quilts from a fresh perspective.
I was distracted so I must ask forgiveness for not getting names of the makers. I will show you a few of my favorites...
The next ome was a big bed quilt... look closer, a double wedding ring, pieced with white, cream and tans and embossed with daisies! Love! Anyone know the maker??
This is a close up of the kind of whimsy, detail and three-d effects I love!
Rachaeldaisy from Australia made it.
There are competition quilts for PNQE, some of the World quilt show quilts, special display exhibits, Hoffman challenges, and .... shopping!
I went with all good intentions not to buy more fabric but y'all....
Then there were these...
What! Well then, two yards of the circles which is what I wanted anyway, and free companion fabric making these a bargain as well at less than seven bucks a yard. All that color makes me happy.
The real find of the day was Mari. I just had such a great time with her, and it felt like we had known each other for years. What a happy day full of good things.
