I’m a sucker for vendor malls and quilt shows. The inspiration and new products are always fun to look at and give a try.
This year quilt fest for the Utah quilt guild was in the next town over (and will be there for the next few years- yay!) so of course I couldn’t let it pass through without a visit and a purchase.
It wasn’t the largest one I have been to, but there was still plenty to see and chat about.
The theme was Camping… this is so fun!
Here is what caught my eye at the show:
Reverse Applique– always a fan! This one shows off the pieced background.
String Pieced— this was such a fun quilt.
Sashiko– this is such a funky stitch. What a great combination of quilt blocks show casing them. This is something on my to-do list.
These mushrooms remind me of my own version— free download!
Love this curved piecing! Fun quilt block and the color for each- very modern in style.
I managed to score a few awesome deals as well. Books- 40% off the lowest price, $2.50/yard flat bolt, 8 fat quarters for $10 and there were even spinning the wheel game and I won one yard of fabric! Whoop whoop.
And- meet Vintage Door. I have ran into their booth a few times and every time I must pick up something! They sell hem tape with crochet edging. Gasp. I know! Love it!
This time around they were just introducing to the market their new WIDE hem tape. eep. Yes, it’s great for quick binding on baby blankets, doll quilts or any kind of edging- like on aprons and such. So excited to give it a try!
You can order your own yardage here at their Etsy store: Vintagedoor.etsy.com
I also ran into Annie Smith from www.simplearts.com. What a delight to meet someone you’ve passed or said hello to before, but never really chatted. I had the opportunity and it was fun! She has some fun stuff happening, so go check her out.
Fall Quilt Market in Houston is coming up next month… this little snippet of goodies and eye candy is a great way to get me in the mood and ready to go!
