Prairie Star Quilt Show

I went to a local quilt show today.  If you live near the Chicago area, this is a great show.  The show will also be on Saturday.  You can get info here.

There were lots of vendors, and the guild had a 'fabric' booth (fat quarters for $0.50, and fabrics for $2/yard) and also a members boutique.  Yes, I bought from both guild booths and some vendors (sorry, no pictures).  There were also books, magazines and patterns for sale, too.  I did get a couple of patterns (6 for $1). 

Don't worry, we did check out the quilts, too.  Lots of lovely quilts to show you.

  20. What wonderful quilts - I just love the mariners compass, but that maybe because I'm ex-Navy. I just wish we could buy fabric as inexpensively in UK!
