Morden Quilt Show & my splurge!

 Oh boy did I splurge at the quilt show yesterday!!!
This is what I splurged on!!!
I gave it about a 10-minute consideration, and then went for it... I had wanted such a program for the last 2-3 years now... Can't wait to give it a go!! 8-)

Since I did my "splurge", I had more control of myself with regards to fabrics... I got the 2 greens for 50% and 40% off... 
 The fat quarter is for making, what else, Zebras...

Patterns bought...
 I could not pass up the Giraffe Growth Chart, as they had a sample of it hanging there 
that was just too cute!!

 Little wall-quilt hangers & ergonomic ripper.. 
 Lil' Twister tool that I've been seeking off and on...
 
 Still looking for an Apple Core tool though...
Want a strong one I can rotary cut around...

The rest of my goodies here I bought at a "Second Time Around" vendor table. I think I came home with some good savings... Attached to each, you can see what I payed...
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
I will post some photos of the quilts that were at this quilt show sometime this week...

Hope you are all having a great weekend! 8-)

You did well! Let us know how you like EQ7, if you have time to use it with all the new projects you have to do!

You have about a 100 days to play/sew etc. Grandma's, esp. NEW grandma's are far to busy sewing anything :)
So, of you go to the sewingmachine!

I have go to finish my inside projects because now the rain has finally stopped I need to get the flowers out there. Every year I say I am not going to put so much out but I always give in. Can't help. Gotta love the flowers.

WOW...you did a good job shopping. I enjoy playing around with EQ7, although I don't yet know how to use all the features. It is a lot of fun...and I'm sure you will enjoy it, too.

Sue Daurio said...

Wow!! looks like you had a great time. You're going to LOVE EQ7. I made about about 30 quilts on the program before I actually got busy and started sewing!! Have to be careful not to get lost in the bits and bytes :)

Brenda said...

Look at you go!! Those are some great projects!!! And it is going to be fun to see them done, or at least the start of them - and then the finish!!! Love the twister blk..... so far I have resisted it - but the quilts are so cute that it makes it's hard to!!
Have fun!!
