Hanging Out in Madison, WI

Jaggie here. I see Michelle has been posting again. Oh, well, it was nice to have a few days off and she was really excited about all the quilt tops she got done over the weekend. We just got back from the "hanging out" at Quilt Expo in Madison, WI. and as Michelle said, it was a lot of fun. We met some great new people and had the chance to catch up with some friends, like Barbara from Crawford Designs

It was much cooler there than it has been here in Texas, going from 100 degree temps to 60 degree temps can really fluff your fur. It was a nice change.

I helped Michelle with demos over the 3-day show. Tracing, cutting and fusing ...well o.k. Michelle did most of the work. Anne, one of Veronica's friend, does most of the tracing of sample patterns for us and we realize how much more we can get done now. 

I also spent some time hanging out on the batiks rack. {Are you surprised!?!} I didn't nap this time, but I really enjoy looking at all the bright colors. This quilt, My Favorite Earrings, by HissyFitz Designs, is one of Michelle's favorites and we got to help lots of quilters pic out fabric to make their own. (If you like it, you can send us an email to order it. Its a quick and easy project!)

It was a great show. There was lots to see ... beautiful quilts on display, almost 200 vendors and continuous raffle prizes and classes. If you're in the area next year, you should definitely attend! So many people stopped by our booth! We were so busy, I was put to work, although I'd rather sit-n-chat.

Next we are off to the ...
Round Bobbin Expo in St. Charles, MO
September 20-21, 2012
at the St. Charles Convention Center

If you are in the area, stop by and visit us. Admission is $8 for adults and under 16 is free. Fore more information, visit the Round Bobbin website.

Until next time, keep quilting!
