I'm just sewing out my stress.

QuiltFest Jacksonville 2009 September 25, 2009

 

This week I am helping out my favorite shop Sew & Quilt Shop at the Jacksonville QuiltFest.  This is my first quilt show and I am really enjoying my time there.  Tomorrow is the last day and I can’t wait to tell you all about the stuff I’ve learned. 

Yesterday was the first time I played on a long-arm quilting machine.  My addiction has begun.  Now I need $10,000 to make my kick butt sewing room/business with great machines and a long-arm.  Using the machine was one of the easiest things that I have done and covered a lot of ground quickly.  I want this machine:

Okay Santa, my wishlist is made.  I will make sure I stay on the nice list. 

While I was on a break today from  the booth I went to look at the quilts entered in the show.  There were tons more and some are so intricate.  Here are some of the quilts that caught my eye. 

Can you tell I like bright colors and the non traditional quilts??  Can’t wait to update all of you tomorrow.

  1. Did you take a peek at my Best of Show quilt? Anxious to see those ribbons hanging on it. Thanks for sharing your show experience online.
