Quilt Show Fun!

I just had a wonderful time at the NQA Quilt Show in Columbus, Ohio this Past weekend! The town that I used to call home was a great place to visit! It was so fun to see a few friends, and also great to meet a few blog followers. Wish there had been some free time to have visited longer...maybe next time!

 

I rearranged the booth a bit this time, added a few more things to show quilters what I love to use while I am Stitching and Punching, and really enjoyed showing lots of ladies some hints for English Paper Piecing. It was so fun to see those reactions when they got interested in a new technique that they never thought would interest them. You've seen those techniques on this blog in the past as well. I'd love to hear if any of you have used the hints for EPP. Sometimes just a little something makes all the difference in making the process easier and makes it much more fun as well as easier for us!

I can't thank my Sister-in-Law Karen enough for her help manning the booth! She was such a great help and we had such fun together! She was the business manager while I did the demo.

 

Our Aunt Jane and Uncle Don hosted us while we were in town and it was wonderful to see them as well. Jane came to see the show and snapped this picture at the end of the day before we started packing up. While we were visiting and working in Columbus, the cousins were hanging out with their grandparents an hour north. We enjoyed our time together...quilting and sweet family...how much better can it get!

Now I am so excited to have time to begin the next few quilts! It has been a while since I could design and my fingers are itching to get started! Yippee!

I have seen where several bloggers are claiming their blog on Blog Lovin', so I will do the same and get that bit of business out of the way. I have never used the Google Reader, which has gone away as of today as I understand. If you have never looked at the dashboard on your google account give that a try as well to see if you like keeping track of your blog list that way. The dashboard is my preferred method to keep track of blogs. You get a short paragraph and a picture to entice you into reading the rest of the post. I have the dashboard saved as a bookmark on my ipad, and a desktop link on my PC for quick access at any time! It's a nice way to keep track! I will be adding the Feedly button as soon as I can figure it out as well in case you like that method. If there are any other readers I need to add to make it easy on you, please let me know! Of course you can always follow by email, but an organized list is much easier for me.

Take care,

Missie
