AQS Lancaster - - - Shopping Wrap Up

Today was the day - finally off to Lancaster, PA for the 2nd annual AQS Quilt Show. I'd like to start with the quilts, but I need a little more time to think about the collection that was selected for the show.

I'm playing it safe today - focus on the shopping - and there were a lot of vendors - perhaps, dare I say, too many vendors? Is it possible - yes, I think so!

I came home with a nice little collection from the Free Spirit / Westminster vendor - some great shot solids, dots and two fun little patterns.
From technicolor to black, white and in between - I love this fabric.

This is what I call shades of gray . . .
From Hoffman's California International Collection - purchased at Quilters' Express to Japan.
I also picked up this great fabric from the same vendor . . .
It is more gray than blue - from Yuwa Fabric of Japan.
Two more Japanese fabrics made their way home with me . . .
very similar in design and color - they will compliment each other beautifully.
This is selvage to save . . .

I found this great little pattern from Fig Tree and Co. at the shopping mall on Route 30 across from the Host (the location of the old Lancaster Quilt Show), the non-AQS sanctioned quilt shopping location. The vendor had it made up in a beautiful floral fabric. The number of vendors at this location is half of what it used to be and there were very few shoppers in the building :(


And did I forget to mention what a beautiful day it was - 74 degrees - windows wide open and the house smells like a fresh basket of laundry - bring on spring - I'm ready for it!
