Quilting in Idaho

Becky from Patchwork Posse, Julie and I packed up and headed north to Idaho.

Destination: Declo

We were invited by the local guild and Julie's aunt, to their small town just south of Burley, to give a trunk show and demonstration on our quilts and patterns. What a fun day!!

I showed off all my quilts including my
Chocolate quilt and my new Wizard of Oz quilt (Pattern will be out about the first of July...yipee!) and then shared some of my favorite quilting gadgets like my Jillily Applique Glue and my size 11 Bohin Applique Needles. If you don't have these- they are fabulous!
I also raved about the 100% Cotton Aurifil Applique thread that I love! With these three things together my hand applique is amazing-- my stitches are almost invisible.

We had little giveaways.... and a chocolate make-n-take project... and more giveaways... and chocolate...and a pincushion make-n-take... What more could you ask for !?

After a yummy lunch of salads, pizza, soup and homemade desserts we were given a peek at the projects that the guild has been working on and their own show and tell. They have been passing around round-robins and had them there to show. They were so wonderful. They have some great quilters!

Then it was on to the
Gathering Place in Rupert, Idaho. Can you believe they have 15000 bolts of fabric?

Look at this great window display!

And all the fabric!!

The Gathering Place was even one of the shops featured in the latest America Quilts Magazine. And I know what you are thinking--of course we had to find one or two new pieces of fabric to add to our stash.

Wish you were all there. It was a great day!

Happy Quilting...

Oh that sounds so fun! Your chocolate quilt looks amazing! I love Jililly's applique glue and I need to get my hands on some of that thread. Where do you get yours?

I get my thread at Quilters Haven in Bountiful or Quilts Etc. in Salt Lake. They also have the needles at Quilts Etc. I love the Aurifil thread.
