My goodies!

Remember I told you I went on a quilt shop tour while I was in Las Vegas?

If you are going to Vegas and you want to go on this tour, let me know and I'll hook you up with Susan, our quilt tour gal. She does a terrific job of picking you up at your hotel, getting you together with really nice women, getting you safely to the shops she has scheduled, takes you to lunch at a wonderfully delicious soup and salad restaurant and returns you to your hotel excited about all the wonderful things you've seen and purchased. I don't know how a fabricaholic could not have a wonderful time with her. (She will even see your fabric gets shipped home for you in the event you can't pack it all in your suitcase!)

Well, this shot is what I bought on the trip. I thought I laid it all out so nicely, but it looks like I threw it on my bed and took a picture.

This lighting in this picture isn't great, but at least you can see a portion of my purchases. In the back is the bag I got as a gift from Susan, our tour director. It's one of those recycled shopping bags. On the front you see different blocks. On the back of the bag are quilting terms with their meanings, like a page from a dictionary. The fabrics in front of the bag are my chubby eights. There are some great fabrics there!!

This panel is going to become a baby quilt. I saw it and just fell in love with it. I hope the lucky baby will love it, too! There's a red print and enough of the green print for the back of the quilt, sashings and binding.

These fabrics are the only "yardages" I bought. I love them, no specific purpose, just a love of the design. The blue is an oriental print, the orangey one is really more pink with yellow and orange. Very bright. I just fell in love with the daisies on pink and the dark fabric is birds (parrots) on palms and leaves. (I am hoping to do a stack and whack with it.)

These are fat quarters. As you can see, I was on a pink/red tangent while on this trip. I LOVE reds and pinks and think I'm going to start working on a design for myself in those colors.

I just couldn't help myself, I fell in love with these fabrics and HAD to have them for my stash!!

Even more fat quarters I could absolutely not resist!!

These are the patterns I snagged while shopping. Whew, a girl just has to splurge now and then!!

I hope you enjoyed looking at my new fabrics.
