Purchases from Paducah

I just thought I would share some more of the loot I picked up while in Paducah.  I found some wonderful (new to me) patterns.  The center one on the top I bought with the CL's in mind.  Looks like something they might enjoy making.  You can't see it very well but the one on the right on the top had done something I had not thought to do before and that is use prairie points on an inside border.  The small ones are all feathered stars (you all know my obsession with those)
I have the first Claire's Cats book and did a quilt a while back for my friend Judy that had been diagnosed with bone cancer.  The new book is cute too.  One of my other obsessions is Halloween so I absolutely could NOT resist this cat leading the JOL choir.  It was an adorable quilt all made up.
I had bought some charm squares and wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with them and then I found this book.  I have not seen many of the books or patterns using charm squares that I like but I loved the patterns in this one!  
In fact I liked them so much I bought this fabric and these charm squares to make one of the quilts for myself!!  Wow, I may actually get a quilt on my own bed.  Wouldn't that be novel?

Then I found this fabric.  Fresh Squeezed.  I just fell in love with it.  I found the striped fabric at Eleanor Burns' tent for $4/yard, so viola...I had my backing too!!  Now I just need to find the aqua from the bundle to use for a border.  Any suggestions??  This one will also be for me but I have NO idea what pattern I want to use.
Then I found this and thought I would share it with all of you too.  The woman at Ohio Quilter's Journey is having a give away.  Go check out her blog and answer her question for a chance to win!

Have a great day!  It is sunny and beautiful here!!
