On Saturday I had the lovely treat of heading to the quilt show with friends; I provided them with a car, and they provided me with an excuse to do something I had not done in years. The quilts on display were absolutely gorgeous, and quite varied in technique, style, topic, material, pretty much every variable imaginable. I forgot my camera, of course, so borrowed a friend's, and when I get the pictures sorted I'll post my favorites.
In the meantime, I can show off what bought (I told myself to avoid fabric and books, which I can get easily in lots of places). From an incredible booth devoted to all sorts of vintage and vintage-y trim (whose card I forgot to get):
From Handloom Batik:
From a delightful wool booth:
awesome patterns ("My Wool Crazy Year" April and October) and a piece of wool fabric I could not resist.
From another trim booth:
So many ideas percolating . . . .
