A Little Quilting....a Lot of Shopping!

My sister Isabel and I went to Road to California on Thursday.  It's our big quilt show in Ontario where there are many beautiful quilts and lots and lots of vendors.  We did our part to boost the economy (lol) and had great sister time!  I posted pictures from both me and my sister's cameras.  The pictures don't do the quilts justice but hopefully you'll enjoy seeing some pretty quilts.  They are loaded on my webshots album here.

Friday night when we got home, Isabel started picking out some 30's fabrics from a charm pack she bought so she could make the little 12 Days of Christmas mini mystery from Temecula Quilt Co. like the one I was working on.  While she did that, I finished quilting my mini and I wasn't happy that I didn't add a small white border before adding the bigger border.  I said something about adding rickrack and Isabel saw three piles I had in a container on my window ledge.  The white looked best so I added it and now I'm very happy with my little quilt.

I just stitched in the ditch around the quilt and then did either an 'X' in the block or stitched around the design.  Nothing fancy for this little one.

One of the things I bought at Road was this little Kitty panel from Holly Holderman.  Oh my gosh, it's so cute, it makes me smile when I look at it.  One of the booths had a quilt hanging in their booth with just 4 kitty blocks but I'm going to make it with 7.  I got all my alternating blocks tonight (me and Isabel worked it up in EQ7) and I need to add a little fabric border around the kitties. 

I know I shouldn't have started a new project with so many UFO's but I couldn't help myself.  The floral prints are as cute as the kitties and they just wouldn't leave me alone.  :o)
