Well the show is over for another year…at least for us! (the Show runs through to Sunday so you still have time to go!) It was EVERYTHING…and a bit more as every year gets better and better…and BETTER!
This year The Sands RV Resort hired a bus to take the quilters to the Show…and it was fun to be the ‘kid on the fieldtrip’ for a change!
Once we got to the Ontario (CA) Convention Centre our first stop was…potty break! Because quilters are mainly female many of the Male Bathroom’s were converted to Ladies Only Bathrooms…How cute is this?!
And then several of us hustled over to the Primitive Gatherings Booth…which was already JAMMED with customers!
Here’s Lisa showing off her wonderful designs…there were kits and patterns for everything on display! Too much to take in!
Just feast your eyes on these wonderful quilts!
Wall to wall people but everyone was very nice and we all move in unison!
…Glynis these pics are for YOU!!
Here are Seattle Judy and Claire in the long line…to pay for their loot!
And here’s SANDY…beside this wonderful quilt outside the Primitive Gatherings Booth…and yes she bought a wool kit or two…maybe even three…but I’m not telling!!
Then we made a B-Line to the Heart to Hand Booth. Claire stocked up on their gorgeous Daiwabo fabrics while Sandy and I concentrated more on the wool!
Next it was PinWheels…the Japanese fabric shop!! The lady behind the counter was very nice and let me take pics of everything…
Yup…that’s Claire buying more Daiwabo Fabrics…they are hard to find in Canada…at least that’s our story and we are sticking to it!! ;O)
They have a video on their website showing how to make this beauty…
Love this pinwheel quilt…made out of wee Daiwabo scraps!
I got to meet Julie from Jaybird Quilts…see the hexagon quilt behind her. My middle daughter is in love with this quilt…so I was thrilled to find the pattern. And what a lovely young woman…so nice to see young women interested in quilting!!
Wooden Spools was hopping too…
Loved this sweet snowflake runner
And loved this little wall hanging with the OH CHRISTMAS TREE verse stitched around the quilt..
Also this sweet mat was adorable…
Another favourite booth was the Calico Horse Booth! These ladies were wonderful…and took time out from their busy day to posse for this picture!! Oh…how we miss Donna’s Calico Horse shop! It was like meeting up with old friends..
Back on the bus for us…our bags were full and unlike kids on a field trip the bus was NOT quieter…there was lots of sharing and talking about loot, booths and designers!! Quilters are like the Energizer Bunny…they never stop moving…or shopping…or planning…or dreaming…or hoping…or sharing…or talking…!!
So that’s it for my FAVOURITES booths…I hope you enjoyed the booths as much as we did!!
Tomorrow I will show some of our favourite QUILTS in the show…stay tuned!
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Quilting!~P
