Stash Report/Quilt Show Report

nothing in and nothing out this week---i was at the quilt show!

Best new fabrics: a tie for first place,
"Sunkissed" by Sweetwater, and "Buttercup" by Fig Tree

Best new pattern:
"Lincoln's Watch" by Bonnie Blue Quilts. the vendor had plenty of patterns, but they sold out in 2 hours the very first day of the show! pictured is the quilt kit, well worth getting.

"The Civil War Sewing Circle" by Kathleen Tracy, pub:That Patchwork Place

Great review - I agree with the best new fabric lines. Also, like Lincoln's watch! I am still amazed that you went to a quilt show and came home with nothing to add to your stash.

no sunshine and warm weather--must have been on backorder. Ooogled the books, but I am on a "low book" diet.
