Out & About: Abilene Revisited

It's me, Jaggie! I am so excited to share photos from the Stars Over Abilene Quilt Show this past weekend in Abilene, Texas! First of all, Abilene is beautiful ...

Have you visited "Frontier Texas!"? It is a museum that brings the Old West to life! It offers the big picture of the Texas frontier between 1780 to 1880 and one of the few in the country with life-sized holographic figures! I really wanted to don a cowboy hat and ride a horse, but we had a quilt show to get to!

We had a lot of fun this weekend meeting the Abilene residents and visitors who came through the Bear Thread Designs, Inc. booth. Were you one of them? Did you see Nancie demoing the Applique Pressing Sheet TM!

Here are some photos from our weekend adventures!

The Bear Thread Designs, Inc. booth was quite colorful at the Stars Over Abilene Quilt Show. With samples and patterns from Bigfork Bay Cotton Co., O'Carol, Bee Creative Studio, Bear Paw Productions, and Pine Needles  the booth was nearly classified as a natural habitat because of all the flowers, trees, wildlife and other animals!

A crowd gathered around Nancie as she demonstrated the Applique Pressing Sheet TM in the Bear Thread Designs booth.

HeeHee! This pattern, Pine Needles' Home Tweet Home, was what Nancie was using to demonstrate the Applique Pressing Sheet TM but while she and Veronica were sleeping I put them together like this! What do you think? 
My favorite part of fusible web applique is that you can get as creative as you want and make it uniquely yours!!

Starting at the Abilene Show, Bear Thread Designs is is now carrying one-yard, pre-cut Hoffman Bali Batiks fabric pieces. What a treat!! Did you see the selection?
This visitor shows that quilting is not just for ladies. He went home with quite a collection, but don't worry, we have lots more!

A Texas-sized thank you to Abilene, Texas for making us feel so welcome! Next time we go through, we definitely want to visit the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature and the Abilene Zoo!

Until then, happy stitching!
