Here is some more eye candy. I"m sharing today some of the "Celebrate Spring" quilts. My favorite had to be the one above of the little boy doing the summersault. Isn't it adorable!
And this family of owls was wonderful.
I thought I would share some vendor candy also. I did get permission of the owners to take these pictures in their booths, so don't anyone panic. Above is Lori Smith in her booth. I remember last year, her booth was so small and packed. She lauged that she got a bigger one this year! Her quilts in real life are wonderful. They all have this wonderful muted mud like color. I asked her if she tea died or treated her fabrics to get that wonderful muddy color, but she said no, she just acheived it by using the right fabrics. Amazing! And she also told me she LOVES her job! (But that she is really busy and is working every waking minute)!
And the star-like quilt with applique and the quilt in the corner over the mans head are 2 quilts I saw in Paducah last year and loved, but chickened out of buying. They are from Laundry Basket Quilts. So I broke down this year and bought the patterns! Aren't the pretty! The one in the corner is made with templates and she developed a way to piece it so there are no inset seams! I was hooked after she showed me the demo. That was why I chickened out last year from buying the pattern! Oh and she had nice templates to use so I can rotary cut with them! Had to get those too!
The above quilt is really more blocks, this is just a smaller version. I bought a kit and pattern for this one last year in Paducah but am afraid to cute into the fabrics! I thought maybe if I took a picture of it this year it would inspire me! (Or make me more afraid!) This booth, and kit were from Quilt Plus in Indianapolis, and the pattern is a Quakertown quilts pattern called Sleeping Beauty.
