Iowa Vacation & Quilt Show

Cool Quilt from Quilt Show!

At the Living History Farm

Happy Monday Everyone!

We had a fabulous time on vacation in Iowa and I had a great time at the AQS Des Moines Quilt Show http://aqsshows.com/AQSDesMoines/. I attended the show with my cousin...also a quilter...and we bought fabric, took photos and sat in on a couple of demos. I am trying to get all of the photos uploaded, so bear with me and check back often for the photos. Posting a few of them today (see above). We also visited the old family farm in Ames, Iowa...I spent every summer there until I was 15... so great memories going back there. In Des Moines we also visited the Living History Farms http://www.lhf.org/ ...very interesting and lots of quilts there too!  Hubby drove the whole way...thank you, thank you! The weather was beautiful and the food was great too!

Still working on embroidering tea towels and finishing up a baby quilt on commission and my youngest daughter's quilt. Oh...I purchased the back for my daughter's quilt at the quilt show in Des Moines! Went to my favorite vendor Sew Batik http://www.sewbatik.com/ to buy the back fabric. I love, love Sew Batik and visit their booth at the Dallas Quilt Show every year, so I was very excited to find them at the Des Moines Quilt Show too! I also bought some other batik fabric there too! Of course, working full-time is slowing down my quilt production, but we all do what we can!

Check back soon for the quilt show photos! Gotta run for now!

Happy Sewing and Quilting!
