Happy BIts #45

Love quilt shows!  They're even better when you can go with a quilting buddy and best friend!!

Yesterday we went to the Piecemaker's Quilt Show in St. Mary's, Ontario.  (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Piecemakers-Quilt-Show/224309937634857)

This is an interesting show in that two guilds collaborate to organize the show.  It is well done - smoothly run, displays were terrific, venue is easy to get to, lots of space.  Vendors had lots of space and were set up around the perimeter of the room with the quilt displays - love that! Fabulous quilts, lots of inspiration.  So much creativity.  I also liked very much that there was a wide range of quilting ability on display - brave beginners, seasoned fabric artists.  Very interesting to see results of workshops/classes - so many interpretations of a pattern or technique.

One of my favourite finds today was a line of digitized fabrics from P&B Textiles, carried by Greenwood Quiltery from Guelph.  The fabrics are so soft and the colours and patterns glorious.  A few FQ's had to follow me home!

You can see the fabric line here ... http://www.pbtex.com/xanadu/.

And found this "Strip Stick" from Babb Enterprises - had seen a review and was on the hunt for one!  Score!

And finished up the jeans quilt after supper.  Have to get out in this sunshine for some pix ...
