The Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show. 2017.
Have I said how much I love this quilt show? Because I do. For the past two years, as soon as I know the date I take the day off ahead of time so I can ride down to the show with my quilting friends on a big tour bus (scheduled through our local quilt shop). It’s a 2.5 hour one-way trip, but it is so worth it!
Chatting on the bus with friends on the way there, and then showing off our buys on the way back is a fantastic way to pass the time. My scores? I bought some new materials to branch off into the wholly unknown (until now) world of crazy quilting. My friend promised to help, so I won’t be COMPLETELY on my own for this foray into crazy town!
This post, unlike last year, will DEFINITELY not be as picture heavy. I had an absolute blast with friends and because my phone hadn’t charged overnight the night before, it didn’t allow me too many pictures before I had to turn it off. Here are the ones I did manage to get. There were some absolutely breathtaking quilts there this year! Someday, I hope to be able to manage this level of mastery. Some day, really, REALLY far off.
(FYI- clicking on the photograph gives you a closeup, so you can see everything in way more detail!)
I’ve got a lot on my plate right now, which is why posts have been scarce this week. But I just finished two quilts and I’m hoping to get my 365 Weeks 7&8 up tomorrow, so we have that to look forward to as well! God knows when I’ll manage to get my Solstice Challenge blocks up. I have last week’s done but I have yet to do the most recent block.
There are two baby quilts that need making, and a friend of mine just commissioned an adorable doggy quilt, which I will be getting fabric for today. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
