Starting Thursday 9/4 is the Wisconsin Quilt Expo. I have gone a few times. Sometimes there is a lot to see and sometimes there isn't. This year will be different for me. I have been reading a blog-Freshly Pieced fpr a while now. Lee has some great ideas and I have made a few of her patterns. I was so excited to get my flyer in the mail for the expo and see that Lee is giving a lecture on Thursday. I immediately bought my tickets. My friend Marilyn is coming up and we are going to this together.
Lee is from Wisconsin also. I can't wait to meet her. She has a new book out and I am excited to get a copy.
You can find a link to purchase her book here-Vintage Quilt Revival. Just click on the right side of the page on the picture.
I just love all of the modern colors and cannot wait to make something from this book! I will be posting pictures and more from the expo after Thursday.
Do you have a Quilt Expo in your area? What do you get excited for? Do you like the quilt show part or the shopping or the lectures? I love spending the day with a quilting bestie!
Happy National Sewing Month! I challenge you and myself to sew or at least touch fabric everyday for 10 minutes this month. Can we do it? I have already played with fabric and sewed for about 30 minutes today. I am making a Christmas tree skirt for a tree at work.
