I have had so many comments saying we should have a good time but I want you to know that we are already home. We had a great time and I wanted to show you a good time too. That being said I will bring you along on the continuing trip so buckle up buttercup and let's continue the adventure! Now where were we? Oh yes, we had just left the convention center and had to decide what we were going to do next, go back to the room or go to more quilt shops? Tough choice right? NOT! Of course we chose quilt shops. The first shop we went to was Sauder's. I bought 2 fabrics a green Kona and a light brown flower for the wedding quilt I am working on. They had some good choices but nothing I was looking for, here is what I did buy though. It will be perfect for the quilt!
Next up was shopping at Burkholder's Fabrics. This shop was in the middle of nowhere, seriously nowhere, but oh so worth it! There's Louise, everyone say, "Hi Louise", give her a little wave~! Then we went inside to the shop, OMG!!! First I was walking around in that front area you see in the photo. Nice but just nice. GREAT selection of solids, I even found the perfect fabric to bind the wedding quilt.
BREATHE!!! All this Denyse Schmidt goodness came home with me. The funny thing? Louise bought the exact same grouping!! I guess I am a BAD influence on her!!!
Well after all that excitement what could we do to top that? Get back in the car and drive to the resort that's what! We set up to sew. I sewed some more of my Dream On stars and so I finally managed to make all but 3 of them for the quilt!! Here's what our set up looked like.
My machine was on the end and hers was in the middle. Louise got the binding sewn on that little coin quilt (which was mine) and then just had the hand work to finish it up. She had brought her Layer Cake QAL blocks but there was no time Wed night to work on those, maybe on Thursday. The plan for Thursday was to get up and go to the Hershey Factory then off to the ancillary quilt show and vendor mall. That's it for now, I hope you are enjoying our trip so far. I will try to finish it up in the next post and show the rest of the fabrics I bought so stay turned! ~XOP~
