WI Quilt Expo 2014


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.

My Book

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.
