Durham Trillium Quilt Guild - Tri-Annual Quilt Show!!

This weekend is my Guild's tri-annual quilt show.  So much fun!!  Fantastic quilts and a lot of inspiration.  But the best parts??  The vendors :)  I finally found the perfect quilt for my baby boy.  Honestly, I am so pleased!  The sailboat quilt I had been working on is simply too young for him anymore.  That's what happens when it takes almost 4 years to make a quilt. So  now, I am starting all over again next weekend at the retreat with an astronomy quilt I bought the kit for today.  The fabric even glows in the dark for a short period of time. More picks to come soon!

I also bought fabric for 4 Christmas pillowcases, a Christmas pattern book and a large bag from the Guild's boutique store.  And that is only day 1! I actually exceeded my budget by 10 am!  Yikes!! 

Well sewing this weekend will be tough.  Regardless, here is my Making Christmas list.  More additions than completions.
