Quilt Expo!!!

Oh what fun it was!  But I'm really glad it's over.  It's so much work and you spend 3 months getting ready for this big event and then, whish, it's over in 3 days.  Here are some pics that I took and as you can see, I didn't get out much, so it's only my booth and the quilts that we had on display.   
This is our booth, it came together very nice.  I had great help and a wonderful friend that lent me some great props and furniture. 

This is the quilt that I just finished 2 weeks ago.  We named it "PJ's Puzzle Pieces" and it went over big!  We sold out of patterns by the second day and had to go to Staples and get more printed.  Thank God for Thumb drives.  By the third day we sold out of the ones we printed, but not till 5pm.  It was a huge hit.

Another great quilt.  This was designed by a good friend, Marge.  She made it from scraps leftover from a kit.  Then she lent it to me to make up the pattern.  This also sold well.  Good job, Marge!

This one is called "Emma's Star Quilt".  My friend, DarLynn made it.  It was a huge hit.  Mainly because it was antiqued and the way she antiqued it was unusual.  Word spread fast.  I had people coming into the booth just to see the quilt that was "baked".  We all kept laughing.  Really, it was a huge hit!

This is our "Anna's Summer Quilt".  This was made with shirting reproductions.  Once it was finished, quilted, and bound, we tan dyed it.  We also used a bamboo batting.  It feels awesome.  You got to love the simplicity of this quilt, and great cross hatching.

Here's a great small quilt.  We named this "Imogene & Ivy".  Don't ask why, cause I'm really not sure.  I just like it.  This block was partially paper pieced and came together very nice.  Love it!

And this one turned out great too.  This is called "Matilda's Quilt".  This was made from a Moda line called "Dominique".  We love this line of fabric.  It's too bad you can't see how great the fabrics are.  Love it!

Another great small quilt.  We've made this quilt over and over again.  It's called "Stone Soup" and you can make it from a Honey Bun and some setting fabric.  It goes together like butter.  How wonderful is that!

And another awesome small quilt.  This one is "Clementine's Attic".  It's made with a Charm Pack, Honey Bun, and some setting fabric.  It is sooooo sweet that you just can't help but not want it!

And lastly, another big hit, "Pearl 'n Ruby"!  This little quilt was so cute that we only had one kit left by day three.  I think we may have to remake this one in a bigger size.  I just love how it turned out.  Thank you, DarLynn!

That concludes our newest of our quilts.  Now to get them hung in the shop.  Hopefully, tomorrow!  But then again, I have too much to do tomorrow to be hanging quilts.  Well, then, Thursday it will be!

Till next time!  PJR
