And I was worried I didn't take enough photos!!!
Pat Sloniger is a fabric designer and I stopped dead in my tracks as I walked by her booth.
Because of this ...
Dude! Pastel Houndstooth??!! Love it!
There were plenty of people celebrating Halloween with costumes and booths were decked out with spooky stuff. I thought this gal was particularly funny.
One day we had lunch under a maple tree.
As a Canadian, I'm very partial to maple leaves. Funny thing is, maple trees don't grow anywhere NEAR where I live. I've always felt a little sorry for myself that I can't enjoy them daily. And it struck me as funny that I was sitting under a beautiful maple tree all the way down in Texas!
Sue Daley is an incredible English Paper Piecing aficionado. Her hand-piecing is to die for. And the scale of her work makes me weep. For example, see this gorgeous quilt?
Hexagons. A bazillion of them. All hand-pieced.
And these little ones here in the middle? Wanna know how small they are?
(That's my camera lens cap.) I KNOW!!! Impossible.
Here are a few more of her things that I want to make some day.
She really has me obsessing over apple cores now!
And she has a book coming out soon. I need to own it. :)
I think my absolute favorite booth was Rachel Ashwell's.
I want my home to look like this.
I think one reason I love Shabby Chic so much is because of this ...
You don't have to IRON!!! tee hee
Love the softness of the colors in this quilt.
Ok. I can't stall any longer. Here's my quilt. (And I forgot to find out who made the adorable skirt & applique top with this Flower Sugar fabric .. super cute!)
And me in front of it.
And my bag with it.
And the pattern is now available to download for free.
Not gonna lie, it was super cool to see this.
And a surprising thing that made it even better was one of Yoko Saito's quilts
hanging just a few feet away in the other corner.
See what I mean?
An absolute favorite fabric line from Lecien for me is Petit Fleur. Soft, pretty & feminine colors with delicate little prints that will never grow tired or look dated. Timeless. I.Love.It!
Isn't this quilt adorable? The pattern is a free download too. Aren't those just the sweetest little yo-yos?
Ok, well I don't know about you guys, but I'm totally Marketed out!
Wait. What? You want to see what I brought home? Oh. Alright. ;) Come back tomorrow, kay? I might just have a little something for a few of you ...
