Creative Show and back to Dear Jane

Last weekend I went to the Creative show with my friend C, who also quilts. Sometimes I'm disappointed by the show - I found some things I liked this year, but found the overall number of vendors quite low for the admission price I paid to get in.

Here's what I bought (all fat quarter sizes):

I liked the sayings on this - turn your head sideways to see them

these will become baby booties for a co-worker (who shares the same first name as me)

these will likely also become baby booties

this I just thought was so cute!

This weekend the Brampton Quilt Guild is holding their bi-annual show. C and I sold raffle tickets in the morning, then toured the show. I'll post some pictures tomorrow. I was inspired to get some sewing done so tonight I ignored my school work and headed up to the sewing room.

B11 is finished:
I looked back in my book to see what I've finished this year. Every month we get assigned 10 blocks. I haven't finished all my homework yet this year. This will be my month and I'm determined to get through all 10. They are almost all paper pieced this month so that might try my patience.

I was talking to a lady at the quilt show today, telling her I was making a Dear Jane - she called it "Damn Jane", which some days, is not far off.
