Quilting Expo

Sorry for the lack of Tutorial Tuesday today. I've been working on a faux chenille baby blanket for the past few days and I keep running into problems, so it's taking a lot more time than I thought it would! Like, all of my free time.

I'm also working on a lot of whoopdwhoop orders. If you haven't signed up yet, do it! It's totally free retail therapy, and there are so many cute things that you can get for FREE.

On Saturday, I was able to go to a Quilting Expo with Caroline. I'd never been to a Quilting Expo before, but I'm so happy I went. There were so many beautiful quilts, I felt inspired and totally defeated at the same time. There were some seriously AMAZING quilts. Works of art!

I was stupid and didn't take pictures of who made the quilts, so check out Caroline's blog, she has photo credits. I loved a lot of the flower quilts.

 Seriously! This is why I don't quilt, I don't have the patience for this kind of piecing and detail.

 This one only took a few months, can you believe it??
LOVE the little jars filled with goodies. How clever is that?

Sooo cute! Little hedgies!
I loved this shirt quilt. I've been wanting to make a quilt using my grandpa's old shirts, ad this was great inspiration!

I wish I could post all the wonderful quilts I saw, but I know you'd get so bored looking at hundreds of quilts!

There was also a stash to treasure sale, where quilters sold their old fabric for super cheap. See all this fabric? Most of it was from the quilt expo, and that's not even including the grocery bag full of awesome scraps! I spent less than $20 on all of it, and look at the bottom, see that? Yeah, 3 yards of Amy Butler for three bucks. Win. I plan to make a summery dress for me with the yardage above it. Ohh, I'm so excited.

I love pictures of quilts at quilt shows! I get the same feeling, awe then deflation. But other peoples quilts are always amazing! So glad you posted those!
