Yesterday was the first day of the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival here in Hampton, VA. It is billed as the largest quilt show on the east coast. I love quilt shows because I love the shopping! However I did mostly looking yesterday because anyone that has seen pictures of my sewing studio knows that I don’t need any more fabric!
I did purchase a stack of beautiful pieces mostly from Kaffe Fassett at the Glorious Colors booth. They are the largest distributor of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. The colors are just so fabulous!
There were of course many beautiful quilts and quilted items as well as an exhibit of quilts by Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy.
I loved the shopping!
I was writing a comment and then decided to save the picture of the jacket- it is so Me!!! and then I lost the comment and now I am all flustered! hahahaha! I am working on a chenille swing jacket at home- I am so loving this though! I am missing a sewing expo convention in Tampa to be here in Ga.I wish I could go to this- I love and adore kaffe’s fabrics!
Thanks for sharing pix with us! I LOVE Kaffe. Back in the early 90s I bought a knitting video of his, where he was teaching people to be confident with color
That 9-patch quilt is amazing, isn’t it? To take a traditional pattern like that and use those bright hot fabrics to transform it into something completely new!
So Inspiring 🙂
Suzy, My mouth is wide open right now…serious awe! Let me know when this occurs again…I will definitely come down there. The colors are amazing! So much inspiration. Thank you for these pictures. Also, thank you from the bottom of my heart for my surprise in the mail today. Please take a look at what I posted about it. You really are the best! xxoo, Susan

OMGosh—total eye candy!! I am so jealous, we never have fabulous quilt shows like that around here anywhere (which is maybe a good thing for my wallet!) Everything looks just beautiful, wow!
Lucky you to be able to attend! Your purchased fabric is wonderfully yummy!
I love that last jacket. I don’t know if I will be able to make it to the quilt show this year, I am working. Do they have a lot of vintage/retro booths this year?
Oh, I’m so jealous!
What fun. Delicious eye candy. 🙂
Those bright colors and patterns remind me of the vintage Barbies!!
