Hello everyone! Quilt Week in Lancaster has come to an end for another year (sigh). At least I have fond memories in the form of lots of fat quarters, patterns and a book. I shared some of the goodies earlier this week - if you missed the post you can click here. For my Work In Progress, my feedsack reproduction fabrics were calling to me. I found a 1930's applique pattern in one of my quilt books called Tulips. I'm doing these by hand, but I've discovered the joys of the fabic glue stick for basting. It has made applique so much easier, and I find I can get better shapes this way.
I have two new books that I got at the AQS Quilt Show. They are from the Harriet Truman quilt/mystery series by Arlene Sachitano. I met Arlene at the show and had a wonderful chat with her. She was kind enough to autograph my books.
I also found a quilting book that I put off getting and then couldn't find. It is a book of 1930s quilt patterns from That Patchwork Place. It is called Applique Quilt Revival by Nancy Mahoney. I love the cover quilt!
Finally, I couldn't leave the quilt show without finding some Kaffe Fasset fat quarters. Those colors just knock my socks off!
I'll be linking this post to Works In Progress Wednesday. If you'd like to see some great quilt projects that other participants are working on, just click on the WIP icon in my right sidebar. Have a wonderful day!
Until next time,
