I was able to attend the yearly Quilt Show in our town. I went on Saturday with my dear husband. He loves to take me and he will walk all the way through and let me take my time to look first and then go back around a second time. He always encourages me to buy something too.
So here is what I purchased this year.
I did not buy a lot. But I like what I did get. Some brand new yummy fabrics. Five Fat Quarters and the little mini package of 2" squares.
I also picked up these two different print fabrics. They have been cut from but I think I have at least a quarter yard with each fabric. I thought they would make a good border or backing for a little quilt. And the two pieces only cost me $1.00.
My last little treasure is my favorite. It is an old canning jar filled with all kinds of goodies. The top is made of glass. I have never seen a canning jar like this before. It says "Ball" on it. The jar itself says "Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason". This was in the ladies Tea Room Sales. I believe people donate things. When I saw it for only $8.00 I felt real lucky and very happy to be able to buy it. I do have some antique canning jars with the metal lids; but not with glass like this one.
When I emptied the contents of this canning jar out; this is what I found. There were two pin cushions that look like they were made with some old quilt fabric. Some wooden spools, buttons, snaps, and wooden clothes pins. Not all antiques; but still fun to find inside. I have put everything back inside for now. I love it as a display.
I spent a little time on my hand quilting. And also working on my ABC Sampler. I was not able to purchase the new fabric for my GFG quilt. Soon I hope. It was a fun weekend. No sunshine; but the quilt show made up for that.
