I may not be going to the sewing summit or other big quilt cons but I did get to go to the Original sewing and quilting expo when it came to Birmingham (Alabama, not England, England would be way cooler). I went with K and got to meet another local blogger, Katie from Katie's Korner. Was great to finally talk shop in person.
It was a pretty small venue. I walked all over it in about 90 minutes. I got to try my hand at a long arm quilter. I also managed not to buy any fabric. That is pretty impressive. Here are some of my favorite quilts from the expo. Lots of inspiration here.
Summer Siesta, designed by Theresa Eisinger and made by Kim Waite
The scrappy nature of this one drew me in:
Scrappy triangles designed and made by Jean Nolte.
Apparently there are 864 HSTs. Sounds like a challenge.
This one was great. All solids, and the color placement is perfect:
Amish buggy wheels designed and made by Jean Nolte (apparently I like her designs)
