The Quilt Expo

What a wonderful day! Good friends, lots of laughs, a lost pillow, and a quilt with amost all the binding hand sewn on.

The quilts were spectacular and the vendors had several things that made their way home with me....some pantographs, lots of thread, a game quilt pattern for Andrew, a pattern for a military wall hanging, a book with purse/bag patterns, a template for making cable borders and one for tumbler blocks, and some South African Shweshw (indigo)fat quarters and some novelty fat quarters.

Here's my haul for the day. At least I didn't have to store mine in the back underside compartments of the bus.

We played Handbag Scavenger Hunt and I had a list of about 100 different items. The first person to pull an item out of their bag and show it won a fat quarter. We had 12 fat quarters donated by Rossville Quilts, a few from Cheryl's Quilts and the rest were purchased.
Everyone was working really hard at the games on the bus:

I didn't get pictures of the big winners, who won a fabric basket made by me, and filled with candy. The person with the most items from the list won a basket and the person who had the most correct answers to these puzzle games won a basket. The games are free to download from the HP site and are just great for a bus trip or guild games. Jan (our guild president) won the booby prize basket (no candy in that one) for having the fewest items.
