Not to mention some serious stash enhancement. My favorites, two kits from Material Girl Fabrics in Gand Island, Nebraska. I bought my very first Lotta Jansdotter, "Bella's Bird."
And I couldn't resist this yellow, grey and black number. I stood behind a lady holding the last kit in the booth. I promise I didn't say a word, but I silently intoned, "You don't like yellow. You don't want that. You don't like yellow." She put it down, and I asked her if she really had decided against it -- the instant she said, "Yes," I grabbed it!
The Quilt Studio from Longmont featured several of Jenny Pedigo's "Quick Curve Ruler" quilts. (Go here to see the first quilt I made using Jenny's clever ruler.) I bought one of her patterns and a new "Modern Quilt Relish" pattern, "Recipe Cards." Both will show off my growing collection of modern fabrics.
Whistlepig Creek has a new graphic designer, and they also have a lot of new patterns. They had this one made up in Malka Dubrawsky's "A Stitch in Color" collection, which I just happen to have stashed.
I also bought two of their e-reader cover patterns and a great new diaper bag pattern that has an attached changing pad.
I had a fun chat with the girls from Legacy Patterns. I love their patterns for fat quarter fun. Big news: their own fabric line from RJR will be out in early 2013!
Naturally, I had to visit the Sweetwater booth. This is my first bit of "Mama said Sew!" It's designated for more Christmas prezzie e-reader covers.
This was the deal of the day! Can you see the price on this complete Vintage Modern fat quarter bundle? $120 regular, on sale for $65.50! A steal!
