So after much agonizing at all the wonderful vendor booths, what did I bring home?
Well, of course I had to purchase more of my new favorite thread - Rustic Wool Moire!
Just look at these luscious colors!
And who can resist a few pieces of antique ribbon and an old velvet heart pincushion?
Not me ;)
At Yellow Creek Quilt Designs, they displayed this wonderful antique quilt made of elongated hexies and their interpretations in smaller sizes.
Paper Pieces has created special paper pieces and an acrylic template for them to recreate the antique - named Yellow Creek Kindred Hexies! Love! I also bought their Boston in Bloom kit - the design appears in Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine Spring 2017 issue. You can see it here.
Ok. I admit it, I went a little crazy! I love these new Primitive Gatherings patriotic designs! The tumblers are all precut and I am going to create using English Paper Piecing. I couldn't decide between the thimble size and the regular tumbler size... So I bought them both *sigh*.
I first saw the beautiful model of "Garden Memories" at Olde World Quilt Shoppe in Arizona and regretted not purchasing it. I was so happy that Red Button Quilt Company had the kit!!! Such beautiful colors and packaged so prettily. Again, since I only handsew and don't own a sewing machine, I plan to adapt to EPP.
I guess it was an EPP kind of day ;)
(By the way, The Olde World Quilt Shoppe just brought their kit shop online! You can check it out here. They have wool bundles, too.)
But never fear, you know that I had to go home with something wool ;)
My major purchase of the day:
Harvest Wall Quilt!
Here is the model:
Let me just say that each and every wool in this piece is gorgeous and absolutely pops against the wonderful backgrounds! It was even more stunning in person!
I better get my fingers busy! I want to start everything, but need to finish a few WIP's first!
I think I covered a lot of ground in three hours! And I went home at closing very happy!
