Catching Up

I feel like I have so much to catch you all up on and have been too busy to write anything much! 
 I went with a friend to the AQS show in Grand Rapids last week and we had a blast! 
 So many beautiful quilts!  I think this one was my favorite. 
 I want to make a Viking quilt some day too and this one was fabulous!





There were so many beautiful quilts!  These are just a few of the ones I liked. 
 Hubby is a pilot to this depiction of the Blue Angels was pretty cool.



My best friend has a Double Yellow Headed Amazon so I took this shot for her.


The Koi pond was striking.



Of course I loved the cat ones!



As much as I loved all of the quilts it was very exciting to me to get to see Sylvia's original 
Epic Halloween QAL quilt. 
 It is the one that inspired my Hallowedding quilt!


Here is my Hallowedding Quilt so you can see the differences.


Of course no trip to a show is complete without visiting the vendors!  
I picked up a few patterns and this amazing seam ripper/stilletto combo.  
This shows it fully opened.


Then pull them out and turn them around and it is all closed up!  So cool!!


I found a cool pattern for a cat bed too. 
 I already had the insert so now I need to put this on my short "to do" list for the kittens!


Last but not least were some patterns. 
 I bought the two Lynette Anderson patterns on the left and the fox quilt on the bottom at the show.  The other two I bought last weekend on our camping excursion to Shipshewana 
(more to come on that soon)


I am so excited to tell you all about the camping trip too.  
Soon!

Stop back tomorrow for WIPs With Friends!

I think I saw you there. I loved the Blue Angels quilt. But the Koi one was great. What about the quilts that the lady bought the quilt tops at the auctions to practice her quilting? Were you wearing an aqua or turquoise top?

Love the quilts that you loved. Sorry I missed the show. Have you ever met Sue Holdaway-Heys? I took a class from her about 8 years ago. Great artist. I liked your Hallowedding quilt better.
