Just a quickie to show a few of the goodies I got at the Nashville Quilt Expo. Yes, I succumbed to the whole yo-yo maker thing to make it easier to make the small ones! I didn't buy any of the larger ones or any of the shapes (flower, heart, etc.), but I did buy the 2 smallest ones - 3/4 inch and 1 1/4 inch because they can be a pain to make and yet are so versatile. Lots of vendors had them, but I got them at the booth with the lowest price. I love the wholecloth quilts, so when I saw a good deal on the printed tops, I snagged 3. One of them is black, which I've never done before. I'm trying to decide whether or not to do it with black thread or maybe a bright variegated thread or maybe even metallic. Nah, probably not metallic - I hate working with them. There were lots of the little Bare Roots candle mats in all sorts of designs, so I got this kit to make for Beth - she really, really loves pumpkins and fall stuff! (When I get it done, I'll sneak it into her classroom at school as a surprise.) There were several folks who had some really neat framed things that used the little quilted hearts, most of them with stitchery words. I got 2 little packages of them - the other package is faded repro fabric that really does look old, but I didn't think it would show up in a picture. I'll show my other goodies later.
