But even more fun this year for me, was to be able to meet a fellow blogger, Lisa, of Stashmaster! She was working in the Keepsake Cottage booth today. We were able to have a very nice chat and a “photo op” before things got a little busy and she had to get back to work. Lisa, it was terrific meeting you!
The blue and white quilt behind us in the photo is one of two of Lisa’s that were hanging in the booth. I must say that the piecing on both is absolutely exquisite! Lisa, you are a fantastic quilter! The other quilt can be seen here and is another masterpiece!
I also got to meet (again) Naomi of Hummerdog Quilts. I’ve purchased from her booth in the past, but since last year we have emailed back and forth a few times and it was nice for us to make the “connection”. Naomi told me her blog will soon be updated with lots of new quilt kits!
Carrie, I thought of you when I saw this little quilt – it was one of the entries in the show. I know how much you love birds! (Sorry my camera was a little out of focus).
And then there was this one that I wish Mr. Squash had been along to see in person as he bought a Jeep last year! The quilter made this for her husband who restores old Jeeps. She looked all over for Jeep fabric and finally found some in Australia! The quilt is her own design and she machine embroidered all of the Jeeps!
I didn’t take a lot of photos of quilts. There aren’t any restrictions on photos, I just didn’t want to get in other folks way when they were trying to view the quilts and read about them.
I managed to add to my wool stash some more and picked up a few small items – some of them gifts. All in all it was a good trip.
