Quilt Show Shopping – part one

I have decided to split this post into two parts, not that I really did that much shopping but…

My main quilt show observation and shopping day was Thursday. The first thing I picked up were these books (Amazon Affiliate alert):

and these Karen Kay Buckley Perfect Circles:

and this very sturdy bag to carry everything I bought (and which I hope to remember to take with me next year when I go):

Those were all purchased at the AQS booth.

Next, I picked up another free motion practice panel and washable bobbin thread from Custom Quilts Unlimited, Mary Smallegan’s shop.

I purchased these from Sisters in Quilting:

This next pattern came from Pineapple Press Patterns:

I visited Laundry Basket Quilts booth. Edyta Sitar’s daughters were manning the booth and there was a stunning quilt that they had draped over the stool because it was one of their favorites. Mine too, as it turns out. I almost bought the kit so I could make that exact quilt, but I have too many batiks to buy more right now! So I just bought the pattern.

Northcott fabrics had a booth, but they weren’t selling anything. They were giving away small charm packs when you spun a wheel. Each charm pack had a block pattern inside. This is the charm pack I won:

As you can see, the pattern I got was for a Disappearing Nine Patch.

I also spent some time looking at sewing room furniture. I had seen a presentation by Adam Eddy about how he started his company, Eddycrest Furniture and how he designed sewing furniture with a lot of input from his quilter mother, who was all too happy to show me her son’s handiwork. These are stunning! Check out the designs on the website. Make sure you look carefully at all the features. It’s awesome. All prices listed are Canadian, so take that into account when you are looking.

So that’s it for Shopping Part One. I hope to get Shopping Part Two up tomorrow. But I make no guarantees.

Quilt on!

  1. I think EddyCrest is the company I saw I and loved at Houston last year. Are they Canadian? I want one of his sewing tables. I love mine, but it will be too small when I get my new machine. 😉
