We had a great time at the AQS quilt show in Des Moines yesterday! Lots of great quilts and lots of vendors!! Check out the link for a slide show of the winners. Here’s a quilt that doesn’t look like a quilt when it’s photographed! It’s “Quilter’s DNA” by Roger Winchell of Asheville, NC. Pretty awesome!!
Besides thread, my purchases were gadgets! Normally, I’m all about fabric but everything I wanted was sold out! So, I have 3 new tools to try out – Seam-Fix seam ripper, Spiral Eye Needles, and Pilot Frixion erasable pen. I’m anxious to use them and will report back with a product review! If you have already used these products, leave me a comment with your review!

Had a great time looking at quilts and vendors at the Cedar Rapids Quilt Show yesterday! This quilt reminded me that I should never throw any fabric scrap away! It has everything in it! I love it!
The quilting is simple, perfect!
Later this month I’ll be taking pictures at the AQS show in Des Moines!!
