More of the Quilt Show

Here's the booth set up for the mini quilt raffle number 4 of 5 this morning...




Look I even won 2 mini quilts I actually won 3. Two were the same quilt design ( the one on the right) I gave one to the current First VP as she wanted one too- it's nice to share :-)




Look at all the fabric I bought -WOW- you know what? I haven't been to a quilt show since the whole Buffalo move that never happened for me started and usually I spend at leasr $150 a show. I missed 6 shows so this a very small price to pay. Barb has brought me to the DARK SIDE not only applique but Civil War Reproductions *gulp* Let's start small with a pattern's worth of fqs to try a 16" block of the pattern I won last night- then I saw the blue and white kit ( my very fav combo) then I bought a book by Kim Deihl. A pieced and applique wall hanging pattern's worth of FQS. The book is called Simple Blessings...should be quite an adventure.





Look who won the doll bed and quilt. After all her hard work I think she deserved it :)




I am exausted after all the the following of Barb's lead. She wrote more on the door prize raffle this morning on her blog...too funny. You can read about it here : Tomorrow is veg out day ....

Barb thank you for such a fun learning experience and a bunch of laughs. I will be begging for help with these new projects....don't leave me alone on the dark side of Repros and applique w/o help- I beg of you......

I love thoe mini quilts, especially the one on the right. It could almost make me revisit quilting again.

It was a lot of fun at the show, loved the little quilt auction I stayed for the first one, everyone that one was so excited, yourself included.(OMG you won 11 of them!) Wish I would have know that was you at the time.

Thanks Kim for all of YOUR help, and the sandwich and soda from Dave too!
I'm here for you on the applique and repro thing. You won't regret coming the the "dark" side.
