Friday a friend & I drove down to the Sacramento Quilt , Craft and Sewing festival . When we walked in the first booth I saw was this oak quilt ladder. I have been wanting one for a long time and as soon as I got it home I hung some of my quilts on it. How fun it is going to be to display my seasonal quilts for Summer , fall & Christmas .
I could not believe my eyes when I saw Sandy Klop ! It was like meeting a celebrity :-D She is just the nicest person ! Here booth was just wonderful ! We chatted for quite awhile and then I asked if she would mind if I had our picture taken together.
Saturday I went to the Auburn Quilt show !
The first booth I went to was LYNN WILDER'S of Sew'n Wild Oaks booth another Celebrity !
What a pleasure to finally meet her ! What a SWEETHEART ! I could have sat and chatted all afternoon but as you can see by my picture she & her sister Gail were very busy . I knew her booth would be popular. She is a amazing quilt designer and it was so nice to see her finished quilts in person. We are hoping to get together soon .
And of course I could not leave without buying her wonderful book Patchwork Math Using Quilting Design Components . She even autographed it for me :-D
This is what I purchased at the show.
I found the perfect backing fabric for Sugar Trail quilt ! It is a Jo Morton fabric .
I fell in Love with these Hoffman " Flames on the Water II " batiks . I need to find the perfect quilt pattern for these !
What a exciting weekend I had !
Now on to the show ! ENJOY !
