Quilt With Us

I had a great day yesterday, albeit an exhausting one!  A few friends and I went on a bus trip to Philadelphia to the Quilt Show.  We had several hours to view the quilts and shop!!!!  I was a bit disappointed in the show this year...very few "traditional" quilts, but loads of art quilts.  Not that they aren't beautiful, but traditional is more to my taste.  There weren't loads of quilts entered for judging...lots and lots for an exhibition of one sort or another.  Was NOT disappointed in the vendors!  I went looking for some wools and was surprised to find 6 vendors that carried lots of them.  Did a bit of damage to the wallet, but got some really nice stuff!  Had a nice day with my buddy and many other quilting friends.

The rest of this week my DH is on vacation with the boys on a fishing trip....woohoooo!!!  No planning meals, no cleaning up after him.....just lots of time to sew!!!  There is a lot to be said for a separate vacation now and again!

Have a great day everyone!

I, too, like the separate vacation time. Must be wonderful at your house...lots of new goodies and all the time you want to play with them.

A quilt show followed by the guys being gone?  Life is good at your house ;-D

I agree with you totally about wishing there were more traditioinal quilts.  I was told once by a famous quilter when I asked him what kind of quilt he had on his bed, " OH I don't use utility quilts"  He sure burst my bubble. Like you, I see the beauty in them but what about the quilt that you use?   I have been to several shows this year and the artsy ones are taking over. 

Again like you..... oh the vendors !! LOVE THEM !  Can't resist them.
