I Went, I Saw, I Shopped

A girls' gotta shop! Of course I was focused on Quilt Soup at
Road to California... and I have another pattern or two to
add to the collection.
My other favorite shop was Honey Run quilt shop from Chico.
They are in the current issue of Quilt Sampler magazine! The next issue of Quilt Sampler that comes out in May will have a pattern in it from Quilt Soup that Barbara did for a store in Utah-- they will be featured in it. She did a pattern for another Utah shop last fall as well.
And while I'm on the subject of Quilt Sampler... In Between Stitches in Livermore will be featured in the May issue also! They have a great shop-- congratulations to them!
(And here I am with a gift certificate on my desk that I haven't spent yet-
what is wrong with this picture?)
So here is the tip of the iceberg! NO, really I didn't get much but
I really love this new Crabapple Hill Studio pattern.
If there was a chance in_____ that I could get it done for the wedding (in June)
I would love to have it there. I am slow at embroidery though. Gran, any tips???
The wedding for Todd & Jill will be outdoors and will have a old fashioned feel to it.
There will be bales of hay with quilts spread out over them. The gifts to those who attend the wedding will be homemade jam made from fruit picked at Jill's familys' ranch.
Wouldn't this quilt be sweet there?
Here are a few other souvenirs...
I didn't get as much done over the weekend as I had hoped for.And what I did get done, I can't show you.
I did work on my Schnibbles... because next Monday is the new parade for A Year of Schnibbles. For those of you who are making your Schnibs 'o month, I hope you are enjoying Madeline! I really loved that pattern and I love seeing the ones that have finished so far! It's hard to say but I think I like the February Schnibble pattern just as much!
So since I am picutreless for what I was able to accomplished over the weekend, that leaves me no other choice than to give you a photo collage of more of the Road to California quilt show. I hope you enjoy it!

Very nice! The wedding: sounds a bit like mine. We had an outdoor wedding with hay bales (no quilts) and we also gave out small jars of strawberry jam as favors. the strawberries were hand-picked by myself and some family but not from our own garden. We went to a "pick your own" fruit farm.
