Quilt Show, Fabric Find, etc

If you are looking for my giveaway post, you can find it here.

My Mom and Aunt are charter members of the Thimble and Thread Quilt Guild in St. Louis; which is, I believe one of the largest in the state.  This weekend is their Quilt Show and I went to check things out.  I'm still sorting through the photos I took and will be creating a separate blogpost highlighting alot of the quilts that I saw. 

Shout-out!! to all of my fellow STLMQG members that I saw at yesterday's show.

Today's post is about the goodies that I took home from the event:

Isn't this a cute way to fold a FQ?

This is a composition book cover that one of the T&Thread members makes.
My Aunt told me about these and thought I'd like one. 
When I pulled this one out, she excitedly said everyone told her that was the one I would have selected.


I picked up all of these magazines for a cheap price of 50 cents apiece.
I got REALLY excited at the Quilter's Home (on the right) because I had been wanting a copy of that one.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Now my Sister and I went to Hobby Lobby on Kirkwood Rd/Lindbergh Blvd. yesterday afternoon and normally I don't look at the fabric; yet after hearing some of my fellow STLMQG members have good experiences there, I checked it out.

Look what I found...

I got SO SUPER excited when I found this print.  I didn't bother to look at who the designer was, I just knew that I had to have some...and by some, I mean ALOT.  When I put the bolt on the cutting table that is when I saw that it belonged to Alexander Henry and was called "sew now ! sew wow!"

If finding the fabric wasn't cool enough, all of their cotton fabric was 30% off...so I picked this up for $7 a yard.  When I showed my Sister, she said.  "That is like YOU in fabric form, you better get alot of it."

{{{Raising Right Hand}}}  I shall never underestimate Hobby Lobby again.

Can't wait to see what you do with that Alexander Henry sewing fabric. I've got a couple of yards on standby!

cute print!! I need to check out my hobby lobby.. Did you sign up for their coupons? Sometimes it's 40% off. If the item is already on sale, just tell them and they will list the regular price and allow you to use the coupon...
Did you check out the Kona?
