|pretty repro fabrics and a book to go with them|
Before I left, I contacted my credit card co. and let them know my plans. There are stories of ladies who go to a quilt show, make purchases from different vendors, and by the third or fourth purchase, the credit card has been shut down. The customer service sees rapid purchases connected to different states, and they think the card has been stolen.

Dear friends gave me a 12" quilt stand as a retirement gift, and I'm anxious to fill it. Three Lori Smith patterns will help me do that with her Quilt Squares designs. I have her patterns all over the house, and I didn't really need more. Any 12" pattern would do, but her booth was just too tempting.

|free project from Lisa Bongean|
A new project is started, "Old Glory Gatherings" a free project from Lisa Bongean (Primitive Gatherings). I found a link to download it here on Janet's blog, AKA "Rogue Quilter." (Link is near the bottom of that post). Stitching the last of the background, and hope to have the applique ready to hand stitch in the car too. (Thanks for the link, Janet.)
