    Hello everyone I am back from the Houston Quilt Show. Had a blast but the trip was to short. I only went for one day on a tour bus. Next time I am going to spend a few days.

    On Thursday I ate lunch with Patrice and her friend Peggy.
    I shoped till I dropped. My shoulders are aching from carrying around so much. I needed a couple of thousand bucks to buy all I wanted.

    It is worth going. Maybe next year we need to plan for many of us from the board to go and meet there for a few days!!!!

    Well took many pics og beautiful quilts will post later . Will show you through links a fes things I bought.

    I got to meet Judie Rothermel who designs Civil War fabric and Aunt Gracies for Marcos Bros. I even took a pic w/ her and she signed 2 books I bought.

    Centinnel Sampler and Reproduction Civil war quilts (books) and her Aunt Gracie bundel for Christmas

    What I bought and an very excited about is this applique kit . I was impressed the lady demoed it. You can make a stem that is 1/8 in wide and also small circle the size of a hole punch piece of paper.

    Sounds like you had fun! Oh, to have an endless supply of cash. :roll: I love the 'Home for the Holiday's' pattern. I have been looking for a Christmas quilt that wasn't too 'cutesy'. Looking forward to pics!
