Quilt Expo!

Look what I came home too!  By a stroke of luck I flew in on Sunday instead of Monday!

If you remember last Friday I wrote about my trip to the Quilt Expo in...I believe San Mateo???  What can I say...one city just runs right into the next one without any warning, lol.  We thought we were going to a quilt show but instead it was just one giant vendor mall with a few quilts hung by a local guild.  I was surprised about the variety of goods that were not fabric for sale at the show.  And the sales tax sticker shock was...a shocker!  I also noticed that there were quite a few patterns I had never seen before...so many quilts and so little time.  Although it was fun to window shop the booths only one made me sing!  That is where I found bought the kit for Crow Gossip which was featured in the 2011 Fall issue of Primitive Quilts. Yummy wool!

Enjoy the slide show...it'll be just like you were there!

"I am a follower.  This will be an awesome bag to make for retreat next month.  I have to take a gift to get in on the Quilt-o-game.  It is like bingo only in quilt lingo."
