Too excited!

 I am leaving in about an hour for the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati!  I am so excited. It has been quite a few years since I’ve been to a major quilt show and I can’t wait!

I’m going with some others from the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild.  We will be stopping at Fabric Shack on the way to Cincinnati and at Sewn Studio when we get there.  Fabric Shack is apparently having a tent sale! I should probably set myself a budget for fabric purchases, but I won’t.

Last night, instead of packing, I made myself a new sunglasses case.  I bought a new spring/summer purse a few weeks ago.  It has a jazzy black and white dot lining.  As you can see, my current sunglasses case just doesn’t match 🙁  What else can I do but make a new one?  Since I don’t really have time for experimenting, I’m using my Essential Sunglasses Case pattern that was published in 101 Patchwork Projects and Quilts last year.

There, that’s better.  (Sorry about the terrible picture!  As you can see, it was after dark by the time I took the picture.)

Do you have any quilt show plans coming up?

    Anything to get out of packing right? The glass case is really cute….and a budget for the tent sale, now that's just craziness.

    Have a wonderful time.

    I hope you have a great time. I live in Cincinnati and went today. The quilts are amazing, especially the one that's subject was a dog that had a first place ribbon.

    Just found your blog after coming across Modern patchwork magazine. I have always used modern fabric. Read your post about Carpenters Star and that's the quilt I'm just putting the binding on! Will have to see if we can get this mag in NZ. Gillian.

    Enjoy your trip and take lots of pictures for those of us that can't go 🙁 We used to go to the Chicago festival but haven't gone since it changed location. I AM planning on going to AQS in Grand Rapids this August! That should be fun.
