So I have a very good reason for not posting yesterday. I spent all day at the NJ Quilt Fest in Somerset, NJ with my artist friend Cindi. We had a great day looking at all the quilts on display and shopping in the booths. I forgot my camera but really didn't need it. We were both very disappointed in the quilts that were on display. There were only a couple of really good ones that evoked a feeling. Most were just flat and looked the same. The booths were ok. I get really frustrated that you can't find the popular "modern" fabrics at these quilt shows. I did stumble on a couple of cute Japanese prints but that was about it. Even the booths that carried some Amy Butler & Kaffee Fassett had mostly the older patterns (that I have already). And not one booth carried any good solids! It seems like the only place you can find cool fabrics in online. Maybe I should start my own online fabric store????
Here are some photos of the cute fabrics I did find yesterday -
I am in love with this cute fabric created by Kokka called Trefle. I think I will fussy cut the pieces and frame them for my sewing room.
Love, love, love the jumping frogs also by Kokka.
I have been looking for this fabric for awhile. It's Alexander Henry "Senor Burrito". He is so cute!
So this weekend I will be hand stitching the blind hem on the stacked coin quilt. I have lots of TV taped so I can catch up on my shows!
We also have 2 house showing scheduled for tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed!!
Have a great weekend!
