This will be the last post of pictures from the quilt show although I may have a few more things to say tomorrow. Anyhow, yesterday Kathy and I had a really nice day. Since we were there on Wednesday, we didn’t feel pressured into seeing everything. This was good because it was much more crowded yesterday than it was on Wednesday. We did get a chance to go to the second building yesterday. This building housed only vendors, no quilts on display.
Kathy had a chance to see what was new in the quilting world. The truth is since she has been quilting for 20 years there is not much she needs unless it is something new and fabulous or a replacement for something she has worn out. I did allude to a major purchase in a previous post so I may as well come out with it.
Kathy’s hands are beginning to bother her when she quilts. Although she enjoys hand quilting, she is not sure how much longer she will be able to do it. At the show we were looking at quilting machines. We don’t have the room for a long arm machine, but kathy has been reading about one that is basically ths same size as a sewing machine. It is called a Sweet Sixteen Quilting Machine designed by Handi Quilter.
We saw it on Wednesday and Kathy tried it out. It felt comfortable for her and she had no difficulty working it. Another plus is that it is a sit down machine. She wouldn’t have to stand to work it since her legs start to bother her if she stands too long. We came home Wednesday and discussed it. We came to the decision that she should get it, so yesterday we made the purchase. She is happy and I know she will make good use of it.
Now, a few final quilt pictures.
Every year one quilt is named Best of Show. Here it is.
