Quilt Show Finds (part 1)

On our Facebook page, Elizabeth did a series of posts about her purchases at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in February.  It's true that we often come home with a variety of things, some that you might not expect to see at a quilt show. This year we bought less than usual, but still enjoyed the numerous and varied vendors.  Here's a look at Elizabeth's purchases that she added to her sewing studio, with the exception of a ruler she bought for her charity quilt group to use.  You can read more about her purchases on our Facebook page.
Sue's purchases are shown below: fabrics of course, a book, jewelry, supplies for a knitting project, skin cream (yes, at a quilt show!), a new walking foot for her sewing machine, machine thread, embroidery thread, and an alpaca head band.
Now for some closer looks.  The book Sue bought contains Japanese design motifs - inspiration, we hope, for some new thermofax screens and quilt designs.
 And below, a ball of yarn in some springy colors along with a pattern for a cowl, circular needles, and a few other accessories.  So far, casting on has been done.
