I attended the Dufferin Piecemakers quilt show on Sunday and what fun it was to see some old friends and faithful blog readers. The quilts at the show were amazing, and we spent almost the entire 6 hours that the show was open just walking around, looking at quilts and visiting the 15 vendor booths. If quilt shows are going to be this amazing, and I have to be on my feet for that long, I'm going to have to start working out!
I was happy to see a wide variety of hand and machine quilting, all sizes of quilts, using a huge variety of techniques and fabrics. You know it's a wonderful display of quilts when it is impossible to pick your favorite!
One of the best things about the day was my great luck with the mini quilt raffle.
I bought 6 raffle tickets, and won 3 draws!
These are the lovely quilts that came home with me!
That is pretty good luck, don't you think?!?!
But to top that, I met a lovely quilter at the show that I have not seen for a few years and she gifted me with a pattern she knew I would enjoy called "A Quilter's Dream" by Crab-apple Hill.
Thank you so much Debbie for the gift and the encouragement. I really look forward to stitching this!
I was feeling so darn lucky, I thought that I must buy myself a lottery ticket. But I have never done that before, so my trusty friend Barb had to tell me where to go, and what to ask for.
And then yet another great thing happened... the lottery ticket seller asked me if I was over 30 years old! I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants - like old ladies sometimes do!
So, with my new found amazing luck, I can't wait to see what this week holds!
