    Posted this in the Main Section, and figured it was under the wrong heading, so thought I'd repost.

    Well, I went to my first expo and quilt show this weekend. OMG, I have never seen such beautiful quilts, the time that must have been spent making some of them was unbelievable! My friend and I went and spent the night, even though we were only about an hour away, just nice not to have to worry about anything. And the shopping, was beyond belief. I spent a small fortune. I'm attaching some pictures of what I got. The first are all 1/2 yard pieces. I had to stop myself at 15. The next was a kit that is done with chenille strips after the quilt is finished. I can't wait to start on that one. The ones with 5 fabrics are each 1 yard each. No idea what I am going to do with these. The last two are a panel that I am going to make a table runner and placemats for ME! Funny thing is I had NO stash, guess I do now. We are allready planning for next year. I was very good thought, did not use plastic at all. Last month was my birthday, so DH gave me $$$ and so did my son.

    They had LA's that I tried and I WANT one. I tried the HQ16, ($4395 ouch!) and it was fairly easy to work with. I was also playing around on a LA that was $10,000. Never in my life do I see this happening, unless I win the lotto and get a bigger house.

    Those are beautiful fabrics. It is hard not to overspend on quilt expo's. But just think of all the beautiful quilts you will make. The colors are truly vibrant. Good job for that haul

    Quilt shows are fun and amazing at the same time. Like you, I marvel at all the work and artistry that goes into the quilts that are displayed.
