A wonderful Quilt Show weekend

What a wonderful & exciting weekend I had !

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 !
