What followed me home from AQS Syracuse

     I was fortunate to travel to AQS Syracuse, NY for the show with some women from my quilt guild. It is a shame AQS pulled out after this year. This show was better than last year- more vendors, better hanging of the quilts. Since I lost my two LQS, it is great to have so much available to look it. I did not impulse buy anything- it was all on my list or I had a purpose for. I have always loved the Lotta Jansdotter prints and they had a fat quarter bundle for a reasonable price.  I don't buy fat quarters anymore, but it was the whole line, $40 for 23 of them. The black, grays and creams are mostly from Jennifer Sampou's line and one booth had a great assortment of yardage. I did resist buying a custom thimble from TJ Lane. It was great, but it was $100. Nothing was real cheap, but I could look at it and touch it. When you look at the photos, it doesn't seem so much, but the receipts are painful.

Glad you had a good time! Did you happen to see either of my quilts that were there? Just curious ...

Looks like you had a great haul yourself. Too bad neither of us knew the other was there! I completely slipped the TJ Lane booth knowing they are costly and when I (rarely) try to wear a thimble on my middle/pushing finger, I give ppl the bird cuz it's so awkward for me. LOL.
