Sylvania Quilt Show Purchases and *Stuff*

I thought I had better show you the fabric I bought at the quilt show seeing as it is going on over a week ago now! First up I fell in love with this cow fabric and then found the others to go with it.
I just fell in *love* with these vintage kitty prints. Eventually, I hope to have grandchildren and think this would make an adorable quilt!

I have a friend that is having a baby and thought this quilt pattern would make a really cute baby quilt and it looked like it was easy. I'm always on the lookout for new patterns and this lady had some really different things! You should checkout her website.

I was tracing all those owls onto fusible and here were my 2 helpers hard at work!

I was so close to being finished with this that I decided to bite the bullet and get er done. I had done all the coloring with colored pencil and then this weekend I put on the textile medium. Then I had to make binding and put the binding on, which I did even though even that little bit hurt my hand. Isn't it cute? It is quite small but very unusual. I was trying different coloring techniques out so it was a nice way to play.

Both DH and DD1 were very ill this weekend. In fact I have no idea how DH flew with clogged up ears, glad it wasn't me!

What did you do this weekend??

LOVE the kitty fabric - I try to buy stuff like that at the Sewing Expo. Speaking of which, are you going? In Novi, in September???
I love the little pattern but the link didn't work. Those animals are cool! And I love your pumpkins - I've never done colored pencils, what is the medium you put on? Does that keep them from washing out?

OMGosh I LOVE the cow fabric LOL. I live in the town that boasts the largest Holstein cow statue so everything here is cow related, even the school bus license plates are Moo 1 Moo 2 etc.

Your pumpkins are WONDERFUL.
