My guild’s quilt show was this weekend so I spent some money and added some yardage. I noticed that at the show I was paying more attention to the quilting than the design. In past shows I usually look at how quilts look overall without really paying attention to the quilting. That was opposite this year and really reflects on my development as a quilter. I didn’t take pictures this time around since I didn’t have a whole lot of time to spend. I also noticed that I was looking at the tools and patterns that I couldn’t get at my LQS. I ended up getting bundles of fat quarters of hand dyed fabric, a skirt pattern and a holder for my ruler. The ruler holder was made by a local woodworking group and I think it’s beautiful. I’ll try to remember to take a picture of all my purchases during the day.

Keep plugging away on the April clue for Scrapitude. The May clue will be coming in a couple of weeks so I’d like to get this one done before the next one is released.
~Have a quilty week!
You have to spend money at shows and shop hops. That’s just a given. =)
🙂 Another one is coming up in June… I’m saving my money for it.
