Super Weekend

On Thursday I discovered a local quilt show that was starting the next day.  Yay!  Fortunately for me I work 9-80's and this was my Friday off.  B. and I were there by 8:30 a.m.  to take advantage of the early bird specials.  Look what I got!!!  She's a beaut, huh?!  I also managed to snag some King Tut and Bottom Line thread for my longarm, a few charm packs and one piece of an end of the bolt fabric.  All of my shopping was done by 10 a.m. (early bird cut off time) and it was on to view the quilts.

Here is just a small sample of the beauty I witnessed on Friday.

Saturday I was inspired to quilt and managed to piece together a back and load this gem onto the machine.  I got a little carried away with my design and managed to spend three hours picking out threads on just one little block.  Oops.  Lesson learned:  don't try to fix something ugly with yet more stitches!!!  Yikes!!  Anyhoo, it set me back a bit so I had to finish the quilting on Sunday.  It needs a little binding (which I will cut with my new purchase this afternoon) and then she's ready to box up and ship to my grandniece.

Why is it so darn difficult to post pictures now that blogger has updated their site???  Anyone???  (this belongs above)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog. I read the last few entries here and love the woven technique you used for the potholder. I have tons of scraps and think this would be a great way to use them up.
