The detail is amazing

Vintage Quills

This is the some of the loot that me and Sarah brought home Thursday from the quilting expo. It was so cool to see so much 3D action going on this year. almost every quilt we saw had some kind of texture to it. the detail was amazing this year as well.
Lynette Jensen was signing books, Quilters from local and not so local guilds came with all their beautiful pieces, and fabric shops from Washington, Oregon, and California came with beautiful fabrics and vintage goodies. Karen, me and Sarah both hope to see you again in November.
It was Eye Candy all day long. I am inspired for another year of creativity. Thank you to everyone who made mine, and Sarah's day definitely one to remember.
