Quilt Show Loot

It's not a big haul, but I'm happy. I went to the Bits 'n Pieces Guild's show today at Queeny Park in St. Louis County. It was a really good show this year, and they had almost all the vendors I wanted to see. (Last year That Thread Shop was there, and I got Aurifil thread, but they weren't there today.) I was invited to attend the next guild meeting, and I think I will probably go. As much as I love my internet buddies, I need some local quiting friends, too.

One of the features of the show was a group of quilts all made from the same pattern, one I bought in Dallas. It's called "Enchanted Autumn", and seeing those quilts inspired me to think about actually making that pattern. LOL

I had been thinking about the Nancy Halvorsen book and was happy to get it at a discount today. I'd like to do the Hearts Entwined table runner and maybe the tote bag. It's darling but really huge (22 x 18 x 10!) I got the bag pattern, "My Mom and Me" by This & That, two yellow fat quarters at only $1.25 apiece, quilt labels, and a cute stencil of a star and smiling crescent moon.

On a side note, I saw a personality test on Debi's blog and decided to take the test myself. The results are posted way down at the bottom of my blog. I'm a Type B+, they say. Debi is a Type A. I guess that makes me a lot like Debi, only with a lower energy level! I wish she could give me a transfusion!!

Lucky you going to a quilt show today. Looks like you got some neat stuff and that heart tablerunner is very pretty, will be waiting to see yours. :o)

You really made out, wanna see the the bag upclose. I think I am going to purchase the Miranda Day Bag like Myras. I picked up a few things today at the quilt show, a few odds and ends. I wish I could be more laid back like you...can you give me a transfusion?

I wish I could trade some "laid back" qualities for some of your energy, Debi. We all want to be a little different, don't we? LOL

Myra, after looking at the directions for the heart tablerunner, I think it may be awhile!
