Quilt A Fair

CQC is the State Quilt guild, and they are VERY active. Every year in September they hold Quilt A Fair, and lots of vendors show up, and they hang a Quilt Show from the rafters.  I had three quilts hanging - one was my Remembering George quilt...

I went on Friday, hoping that it wouldn't be as crowded as it would be on Saturday - well - that was a laugh! I still managed to find a few things I needed to have in my Quilting Stash....

 This little kit is a Cat in the Hat kit. We purchased it, as a lady was saying - I can't buy that, I don't have any little kids in the house. The boys and I were standing right there. We said - we don't either, but we are buying it!

We all LOVE Dr Suess! And one of the boys thinks this should be his next fair quilt..... ( a fight may be on!!!)
These fabrics were purchased in the bundle. I wasn't really looking for fabrics like this, and I don't know that they are colors I would normally purchase. But I did, so maybe my tastes are changing. I even came home and wrote up a pattern for it RIGHT AWAY!! Maybe you will be seeing this in the near future. I do not want to add to the stash......

I saw this moose quilt hanging up and it reminded me of my dad. Not that he will be seeing a quilt like this any time soon, unless he comes to see the pattern. But it is on my list of somedays...

And last but definitely not least - a cool book. This is written by Judy L of http://www.patchworktimes.com/   Of course, her premise is that you can sew these in a weekend... she has apparently never seen me sew.... but the patterns - Ohh laa laa. There were 3 that I want to start right away.

Seriouly, she writes these patterns so well, normal quilters probably could sew them in the time she says.

It was a great time, and I enjoyed seeing all the new things out there, as well as quilty friends. Now I just want everyone to go to bed so I can sew........

he he he "normal quilters?" What does that mean? he he he

Her book is cool. I have a hard time seeing them in prints, though. She's a TOT (tone on tone) girl.

I think I just need to bite the bullet and do one of her quilts in prints.

My quilt shop has the Dr. Seuss fabric, but not a kit. What exactly is in your kit and does it come with a pattern? I am going back next Sunday and want to get some fabric, but need a jumping off spot to make a fabulous quilt for my son's first grade teacher! Love Dr. Seuss!!!
