What a Fun Week!

So last week I spent some time with my sister and her friends, and we attended the AQS quilt show in Lancaster, PA. Wow!!!

AQS-Quilt-Show1

Its been a few days since we were there and my head is still spinning from trying to process all that I saw.

I’m sorry to say I have no pictures to share. I took a few on my phone, but I was so busy drooling over everything there just wasn’t time to take pics. 🙂

There were so many beautiful and inspirational quilts which I expected, and so many vendors – which I didn’t. Fortunately, I had a wish list of tools and supplies I wanted to look for which really helped to keep me on track. However, there might have been an impulsive purchase or two. Just saying.

I really enjoyed talking to the vendors of products I was interested in and seeing demonstrations up close. I will share my thoughts on these products later after I’ve had a chance to try them out myself.

We also visited a few of the local quilt shops and I got some great fabric for projects I have in mind. I can’t wait to start sewing!

But guess what the best part of the week was? One of the girls in our group was one of the daily winners of a brand new Janome sewing machine! Congratulations Sherri!!! All of us were so excited – there was a lot of happy dancing happening Thursday afternoon! 🙂

I am so thankful to have had this time with Melissa, Sherri, Shellie, and Carol. Thank you ladies so much for your hospitality and friendship! I had so much fun with you and can’t wait to visit again!!

This week I’ll be working with the fabric and tools I bought and I’ll be sharing those with you.  I’m pretty excited to dig in, so that’s my crush for this Main Crush Monday. What’s yours? I’d love to see what you’re working on or what has you excited.  You can link up below – here’s how:

    Sometimes looking and absorbing is more fun than taking photos. And to win one o f the big door prizes, how exciting for your friend!
