    This morning, I was quilting and my DH is reading the paper. He tells me we are going somewhere. We get ready and leave. Imagine my surprise when we arrive at a quilt show given by a local quilt quild.
    I have never been to a quilt show, ever. On entering, you spun the wheel to get prizes. I won a pin cushion and he won fat quarters. The gave me my form to pick my favorites. He was so happy that the let him "judge"
    too. After admiring the quilts a few times, off to the exhibiters area.
    While I was picking out fat quarters, he is talking to a lovely 80 something lady. He told her I was buying more fabric and that I sure didn't need it. She told him and I quote, "She is a quilter and so am I. I probably don't have a lot of time left on this earth. I have a pretty big stash at home and I am going to add some of this lovely fabric to that stash. You never know when you just might need it."
    I think DH had as much fun as I did. What a wonderful day. I guess I will keep him.

    We just came back from Shipshewana, Indiana. The quilts and ect. were wonderful and the downstairs in the Merchantile was great with fabric and 6.00 a yd.
    Great eating in the Amish Blue Gate. I was not there long enough.

    What a sweet husband you have to take such an interest. But what I want to know is... is he going to share his fat quarters with you, or make something of his own??? Watch out, your stash may be at risk!

    I think it's wonderful when DH gets involved. Mine is my color consultant and he loves to go to quilt shows. I'm so happy for you,

    I think it's sweet when I see husbands at quilting events with their wives but having said that, I have no desire for my hubby to want to go to a quilt show with me. :D

    This is a long time High school coach you are talking about. Quilt...no way!
    Those fat quarters are mine. :lol:
