Dallas Quilt Show and Challenge #9

The Dallas Quilt Show was this week-end and who can resist going to that! The DFW Gang (we forgot to take a picture) consisting of Debi, Brenda, Sally, Marje, Maynard and myself met at Denny's and then headed to the quilt show--a virtual head-spinning adventure---so much to see, where do we look first!!! But we did all right and had a wonderful time! The picture shows my loot---I especially had fun getting the $1.00 fat quarters for the Yellow Brick Road Project Linus quilts! What a wonderful array there was of those. A new kit for wooly sheep and some notions and a new basket pretty much rounded out my purchases! Maynard enjoyed looking at machines and even had us all convinced he might buy an embroidery machine at the Bernina booth---only I wasn't fooled one bit----I know how he works---looks and looks and mulls it over in his engineering mind and then MAYBE buys it. It was lots of fun looking and looking is free!!!!!

Also shown is a picture of my 9th quilt top in my Challenge To Myself. I called it Purple Sunsets and it is a Snowball quilt. Now on to number ten!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Love the purple snowballs. It sounds like you had a great time. The wooly sheep pattern is a cutie.

Your Purple Sunsets is soooooo pretty - I can't believe you've made that many on your challenge, good for you! The Dallas show sounds so fun, glad you had a good time!

Love your loot!
