Quilt show goodies

As promised, here are some things I bought at the Quilt Festival. Actually, I didn't buy all of them there, some I had already and just bought coordinating charm packs, backing etc. These I bought at the Cabbage Rose Quilting booth. I love their shop in Fort Worth.

I hadn't seen this before, but fell in love with it.

This pillowcase kit uses the new ME line, Recipe for Friendship.

And Merry and Bright by Sandy Gervais uses the same colors as her Christmas fabric from last year. I love the kind of late 50s-early 60s retro feel they have.

And I bought this cute pattern, which uses one charm pack and one jelly roll, from the really nice ladies at Beach Garden Quilts. I am using the Isn't Christmas Jolly fabric to make it (which is what they have used in this picture, but I am using the black fabrics for the sashing and borders, so it will look considerably different).

These I bought from All About Blanks, one of my favorite booths at the Quilt Festival. (It's where I bought the shirts that I embroidered for my mom). I will use the lavender in some little organdy bags for sachets.

And I thought I would use the fingertip towels to make something like this, using Laurel Burch fabric and the LB embroidery card I recently purchased.

These are reproduction Texas state handkerchiefs from Tea Time Quilting, a local shop I've not been to yet.

And the freebie pattern for making them into a quilt...

Yes, I know, lots of I need to start spending more time at the sewing machine than at the computer!
