I attended a major international quilt show this past week in Santa Clara, CA.  I'm not sure what I like best the shopping or the ideas I get from the quilts.  The shopping is very fun.  I love thread, and Wonderful 12 wt. thread is one of my favorites.  I scored these lovely additions to my collect.

These fabrics and pattern were another just for me project.  I do love appliqué, but it is time consuming.  I just could not resist this runner to do for myself.
Last of my shopping spree these yarns.  Not sure what I want to do with them, but I see a nice artsy wall hanging in my future.

Now the inspiration, These are only two of the many pictures I took.  They sure make one want to get in there and create something wonderful.
Well last Sunday finished off this fun adventure for another year so I am linking up with.


  1. Pretty! I have a soft spot for variegated thread and that circles quilt is lovely!

  2. Hey, that's got to be a fun show! I'm loving those threads, but wow! on the fabrics. I can see why you couldn't resist that pattern: it is pretty! Thanks for sharing those quilts, too. I agree with Rachel about the circles quilt.

  3. wow, wow!!!
    nice threads...
    as always, looking forward to what you create!

  4. Looks like you had a great time! Can't do better than shopping and quilts.

  5. What great treasures you got! I'm a little jealous that you got to go to the quilt show in Santa Clara! I'm from the bay area, but I haven't been there for two years almost. I would have loved to have gone to that show!
