Sewing & Quilting Expo

I worked the Quilts of Valor booth at the Chicago Sewing & Quilting Expo on Friday and Saturday.  What lovely quilts, and what fun!  I'm tired after standing for 2 days.  We had a blast in our booth, and had some wonderful booth neighbors.  The Juki dealer was next to us, and they had people come and work on Jelly Roll Race quilts.  About 20 tops were made over the three day expo.  I took pictures of some of the quilts.  Most of them were from 'Quiltmaker' magazine patterns.  What great quilts!

Below are pictures of our booth, and, pictures from when we presented a Quilts of Valor quilt to a very deserving former Navy Seal.

I went to a quilt show earlier today.  I'll post pictures from it in a later post.  I also scored several cool sewing items at their 'garage sale' booth and at the boutique.  Did I mention that both booths were 1/2 off at the end of the quilt show.  Just you wait till you see what all I got.  I also got a new to me sewing machine this weekend, too.  I gotta take pictures before I tell you more about it.  It was a GREAT WEEKEND for me!  I hope your weekend was great, too!
