Subtitled: "I Survived Road to California Quilt Show"
I did. I survived without tanking my stash report too badly. Truly, this is a first!
A box from the Fat Quarter Shop arrived this week with Bar Harbor, a tower and a layer cake. Of course, the yardage hasn't hit yet, but I have a plan so it won't be too bad. Purchased 10.375 yards.
Now off Saturday morning bright and early to Road. I picked up some patterns, varigated embroidery floss and some Pigma pens. There's one more pattern that's being shipped to me. The fabric for every pattern here will be pulled from stash. I put a few back because I didn't have the right fabrics. I felt so righteous! :)
Then I headed over to Stars & Scraps' booth. They always have the cutest things. Honestly, I could have gotten one of everything, but I settled for "February Favorites." This is an American Jane pattern that was done up in Civil War fabrics. It was way too cute to pass up, and only 5.5 yards.
Oh, yeah, the quilts. Lots of pretty ones, but most of them didn't really appeal to me. I didn't take any pictures, but I'm sure that once the show is over, they'll be up on the www.road2ca.com website. Was looking for inspiration but came away a little disappointed in that regard.
That's it! It felt good to walk out of there with everything in one bag. Of course, *someone* - and I'm not saying who - purchased A LOT of fabric. I can't wait to see THAT stash report!!
