Almost three weeks ago I went to the Des Moines AQS Quilt Show with my friend Julie - yes, I had someone to go with! :) We had a good time and saw lots of great quilts and fabric. I thought I would finally share some with you.
Almost better than the quilt was the name of the quilt, "Why Do People Think I'm Crazy?" Who in their right mind would think she was crazy for piecing together thousands of tiny hexagons? :)
A postage stamp quilt. This is also on my list of things to make.
I had a good time, although I am pretty sure that the show has gotten smaller over the last three years. I was hoping to find some specific vendors I had seen the previous two years and they weren't there. Humm... I mentioned to another quiltly friend that I was disappointed that I hadn't been able to find some of the fabric I had been hoping to see and she said, "You go to a quilt show to see vendors?" Umm...yeah? In case you were wondering, I totally scored some out of print American Jane prints and a Fairy Tale Friends charm pack. :)
I am already trying to figure out a way to go to the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati in April or Spring Quilt Market in Kansas City (only a 3 hour drive!) in May. I don't qualify as a vendor or a buyer, but maybe I could help at someone's booth? A girl can dream, right?
