The Traveling Mannequin

Kind of like a Where's Waldo...
There she is in a wonderful quilt shop...
on a weekend excursion!
I escaped and went to Alden Nursery for the
Quilting in the Garden quilt show over the weekend 

This is at In Between Stitches... where I get an adrenaline rush 
as I walk through the front door and take my first breath of
fresh off the bolt fabric! Yum!

I still managed to get in some BOM Rehab time!
and got this one nearly ready to go.

This is Sparkle by Fig Tree & Co. 
(sorry for the super crummy photo)
I love this pattern! I used some fat quarters that I had handy although the 
pattern calls for a layer cake which would be just great too.
I just need to find some Parisville for the outside border and she is done!

Yes, of course I am going to share some 
 photos from the quilt show...

Amazing work by the featured quilter...
Judy Mathieson

The flowers were so pretty too.

Sweet little topper.

Fun quilts everywhere... and up high!

Lots of luscious work everywhere!
So were you in BOM Rehab...
or did your weekend lead you on an adventure?

I have been working on Bee blocks this week-end. You seem to have been busy too!

That looks like a fabulous show and you even managed to have a good rehab too :) Love the Sparkle.

I have a quilting friend (well, I have many, but...) who went to that show over the weekend and shared lots of pics on Facebook. It looks like it was awesome!

Bahahaa!!! I thought you were getting ready to tell us that there was now a Traveling Mannequin like there's a Traveling Stash!! Silly me!! Although, that would be kind of fun!

Gorgeous things you got to see and oooh and aaaaah over!! :)

What a wonderful place to visit, thanks for sharing the pictures of the quilt show. I am glad you were able to do a little rehab too.

I'm sorry I missed you Sinta. I was working at the shop on Sunday. Wasn't the quilt show beautiful?

Someday I'm going to have to get up north for that Alden Lane quilt show...the pictures are always so beautiful!
