|This was supposed to be a photo of the three of us, but the girl walking by who took it for me needs to keep her day job. Joannie's photo of Marion and me was much better.|
|Checking out the show.|
|Marion wore her beautiful quilted sweatshirt jacket to the show. It was a head-turner! She got a lot of compliments! This black and white beauty got added to both mine and Marion's future "to do" list.|
|Joannie is standing between two of my favorites-- a very cute Halloween quilt and a fun floral quilt.|
|This is a close-up from a baby quilt that was completely hand appliqued and hand quilted. The little animals had the happiest faces! It just made us smile!|
|I love the great colors in this quilt!|

http://www.fabriccornerinc.com/ to make our wishes come true! Fabric Corner is one of my favorite shops. They have a huge collection of batik and Kaffe Fassett--two of my favorite fabric types. If you sign up for their mailing list you get a 40% coupon each month. Plus, there was a ton of fabric already on sale for 40% off. Each of us bought some batik for our 2013 birthday block swap backgrounds: magenta for me, blue for Joannie and turquoise for Marion. Joannie also got some gorgeous fabric (also on sale, yeah!) that she is going to make into curtains for her bedroom and living room. If there is a little piece left, I get to have it for a vest (fingers crossed).
I have to admit that aside from sewing a couple of seams on Anna's quilt on Friday night, it was more of a fabric acquisition weekend, then a quilting action weekend. But I hope to make up for that this weekend, since the girls and I will be sewing away Friday--Sunday at our annual October quilting weekend. Tonight I cut out five bindings for some quilts that have been quilted for almost a year and just need binding to be finished.
Pugs and kisses,
