My daughter and I went to the National Quilt Show on Thursday, June 17. Jennifer lives just a few minutes from the Convention Center where the show is held.  We arrived at the show about 10:30 AM and shopped at the vendors and admired quilts until about 4:00 PM. Here are some of the items we bought.

These are the patterns and kit that Jennifer bought for herself. She insisted on buying me most of the items that I chose as a belated Mother’s Day gift as well as buying my ticket , lunch, and some wonderful ice cream when we left the show.

I met Marie Bostwick, the author of  this book. I told her I was her friend on facebook and she gave me a hug. She asked if we had a camera. Jennifer used her cell phone to take a picture of us together. http://mariebostwick.com/

We also met Rebecca Barker, the artist of Quiltscapes. Here is a link to her art.  http://www.barkerquiltscapes.com/

I bought a new  Quiltscapes mouse pad for my desk at home. I have the “spools” mouse pad on my desk at work.

I had a wonderful time with my daughter and thoroughly enjoyed  the quilt show. We plan to make this an annual event.

This is the table runner for May. I will stitch around the applique before I quilt it. My plans for quilting are to meander with a light color thread.
