Lots to post about: Quilt Show, friends, winners..................

Always look forward to the East Cobb Quilt show. They know how to put on a show.  Everyone was so nice.  My Bee  sisters and I headed out early form the boondocks to scoot into Atlanta.  After a wild ride
we arrived.  Here Helen found her witchy friend.  I have never known anyone love Halloween as much as she does.  Helen will have one of these made by next week.

We have so many talented ladies in our Bee.  One our girls Donna Barlow won Honorable Mention
in the Big pieced category.   We are so proud of her.  And one of our guild members  Regina Carter won First place in that category.  Above quilt is Donna Barlow's  What a beauty............
And here is Regina Carters.  This quilt says Regina all over it.

All the vendors were great I bought some goodies.  Advent Calendars, a great pincushion, wool pincushion kit, thread , I love Aurifil and a cute pumpkin table runner in a log cabin design.  Not to bad.

So many of my favorite vendors were there.  You almost had to take a number to squeeze in and look.
I really wanted one of everything. Also Little quilts and Tiny Stitches. And cant forget the thread man.

Mr. Baboo went and got a paper this morning and guess what was in it?  No smarty not news.  A surprise.  Someone blogged about this last week, but not in my area. Sorry for the glare on the picture.
In my area they took out the fabric in all Walmarts a couple of years ago.  But checked on the Internet and they were advertising fabric.  Now don't get me wrong.  If I want a quilt to last a hundred years the fabric wont come from Walmart.  But I could run across some nice fabric for aprons, baby quilts and different things for the home. I love their buttons and patterns.   I once was told that the home sewer was out with the dinosaurs.  I also heard that quilters spend around 3 Billions dollars a year..HA
More pictures of shopping goodness.  This is one of the nice ladies that was sitting and doing hand work, she let me barrow a chair to set and rest.

Now I have brought more projects home to do. I love Fall it sort of flips a switch in me that says sew your heart out.  Hurry up Santa Claus is coming.

  3. Looks like a wonderful quilt show!! You have a lot of talented guild friends. Our Wal-Mart had a small selection of fabrics and they got rid of it last year (in this case, it might be b/c they are located right next door to Joann's) Enjoy your goodies from the show!
