Two Tip Tuesday

AQS Quilt Week in Syracuse, NY is just around the corner!  July 27-30.  I’ll be vending again this year.  Come see me Booth#1509 (right behind the AQS booth).  I’ll be demo-ing Brilliant Bindings and I’ll have all my new “By The Numbers” quilts and the patterns.  I’m super excited to show you my favorite…Shoo Fly Picnic!

It is a super easy shoo fly block and includes directions for making a tarp backpack!  The tarp protects the quilt from the ground and it folds into a backpack for easy storage and carrying the quilt.  Come check it out or visit my website to purchase the pattern.

I will be participating in the “I am AQS” special so if you are an AQS member, be sure to ask what my special is at the show!  I will also be in the Learning Center at 1pm on Friday with a demo/talk on “Bindings Are Not Boring, They’re Brilliant!”

Question:  What do you like most about going to quilt shows?  Leave a comment with your answer and I’ll draw four lucky winners for a “Shoo Fly Picnic” pattern.  To also be added into another drawing for a chance to win a #4 pack of four fat quarters  from “Done by Three” bright quilt and the pattern, tell me what you shop for at shows.  (if you are outside the USA and win…we’ll work something out!)

Several Quilt Show tips have been given before.  So here are some…but did you know tips…

#1- Many shows have charitable organizations that are there selling quilts, handmade items and raffle tickets.

#2- Buying a Multi-day pass is often cheaper.  And what’s not to like about coming another day, for another look.

#3-  Sometimes local restaurants give show specials.

#4- Vendors are hard working quilter’s …Don’t snap photos without permission.  Many designs are copyrighted patterns.

    What do I love about quilt shows? INSPIRATION! Everywhere you look there is something to inspire! The quilts with their color and blending, the workmanship, the way they are quilted. Vendors have the new patterns and samples of them; new gadgets and demos everywhere; and quilters are all around! Everyone is super friendly. I always come home ready to conquer the world! Like I said, INSPIRATION!

    I enjoy looking at the quilts but truth be told I enjoy more the demonstrations of products. I’m a firm believer that having the right tool can make your quilting so much more enjoyable. Thanks for producing such a great product (I even bought one for my sister)!
