|Quilt by Gloria Loughman|
Although we did a pretty good job staying away from the vendor stalls, I couldn't resist these gorgeous hand-dyes from Cherrywood fabrics.
Cherrywood fabric for ages, but it's the sort of thing I like to see and touch in person before buying. I was so glad to see they had a booth at the Festival. I purchased two fat quarter packs and a pattern with the intention of making a small wall quilt for my sister's sun room.
Here's my entire (quilt-related, that is...ha ha) haul:
My sister was very drawn to this pixelated-looking quilt.
As much as I could have lingered for several more hours I had to drive back to the City thru rush hour traffic, pick up my daughter from school, grab takeout for a quick dinner before going to a play with my family. The play (Scarpin at ACT), was fabulous (the two glasses of champagne helped). I felt I had way too much going on this weekend to be able to devote two days to myself, but I won't bore you with the details. Fortunately my husband was managing all of the kids' activities. I had to figure out when in the heck I was going to find the time to prep my fabric and supplies for my quilt class the next morning. I set my alarm clock for 6 am.....
