Northwest Quilt, Craft and Sewing Festival

What a fun fun fun day I had!  I went to the sewing expo by myself and had a blast!

Then I found these patterns - you just use 2 fabrics.  I have alot of batiks, now I know how to use some of them up!
While I was waiting in line to pay for my purchases - I met the sweetest lady who lives in the town I do!  So we talked and hopefully she will come to my 'sew day' this Sunday!  You never can have enough quilt friends to share with :)

Last, but not least, is my glitzy iron-ons for my jean pockets and plain blouses!  I love these - they are so fun to use and make everything sparkle!  Just adds a bit of pizzaz!  Gotta have that the older we get :)

Got sidetracked....

Miss Melanie told me she needed a new quilt - so off to Gramma's sewing room we go and she picked out this print.  She picked out 'flamingo Pink' minky for the back.  She's a happy girl :)

Her Momma is gonna be a busy girl - I have 5 quilt tops for her to quilt for me!

A kitchen tablecloth

My neighbor has a quilted tablecloth on her kitchen table and I have always admired it.  I put one on my 'someday' list.  Well I saw this fabric at and knew it was that 'someday'.  I am starting it today - need to dig in my stash and get a few more fabrics, but the main ones will be these three.

A bit of sewing for my daughter...

Could not pass up this owl print for the chance to make Stephenie a throw quilt... it is so her!

Sew Day #16

I finished my 'Plus' quilt.  The colors are totally wrong from my camera, will need to take another pic today... this quilt is made all from Amy Butler prints.  This quilt is for Sara - we both love Amy Butler's prints!  This pattern is the perfect one to show them off!
Here are the true colors of the above quilt... I am still getting use to my new iphone.  So many choices.
