I thought I would share what I bought last Saturday from the quilt show. Those Primitive Quilts magazines are wonderful! So many cute projects. I also got a few buttons from Button Mad. I plan on ordering more as I need them. I also got a small kit for a cute little halloween table mat. Two plaid and stripe FQ's also came home with me to add to my collection for a future Bonnie Hunter quilt.
That's it! I think I was really good!
I managed to finish the July set of blocks for the "Civil War Tribute" BOM. 160 HST's this month. UGH! As usual, the lighting on my pictures is HORRIBLE. I went to Best Buy to look for a new camera this last weekend but came home empty handed. I was too confused at the different features. I thought I would do some online research and pick a few to look at and try again. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Have a great week everyone!
(Yes, I posted on a Monday) ;)

I took my magazines to Sharon's and we made the little scarecrow quilt using some of her vintage fabric. He turned out really Cute!

I've been really enjoying those Primitive Quilts magazines too! So many wonderful projects (especially in the Fall issue!). You showed admirable self-restraint too. I'm impressed! :)
