Quilt Show

An early start yesterday, as I went to the Rouge Valley Quilt Show in Ajax, ON with four quilter friends.  Going into the room where the quilts were hanging we thought it would be a quick visit because we couldn't see a lot of quilts, however, we were pleasantly surprised by the large number of quilts on display.  I took several photo's but the pictures did not do justice to the fabric and work involved  in making the projects, so I will not be posting them.
Looking at quilts makes a body hungry so we travelled to Uxbridge for a lovely lunch.  We all had a steaming mug of Pumpkin and Apple soup--delicious, and we needed it to warm us up. The weather was wet and very windy making it feel a lot colder than it really was. Three of us also had quiche, and the other two had a sandwich and a pasta dish. Fortified, it was time to go shopping, no day is complete without a couple of hours in a fabric shop.  We all left the shop with our treasures and in the van had an impromptu "show and tell".  I purchased a "One Block Wonder" quilt book, planning on making a quilt using this method in the future, also some yardage for my gd2's wedding quilt and some goodies to put into a quilter's Christmas gift.
After our retail fix we began our ride home,  stopping for dinner and all arriving home safe and sound after a great day out with friends, looking at some fantastic quilts and shopping, what more can a quilter ask for.
