Quilt Week-Daytona's Quilt Show

Our second annual trip to the quilt show was today! 
 It is held in a beautiful convention center and the space is huge and filled with everything quilt lovely!
 Most of the quilts were in camera-free zones but we did have to do the selfie again this year!
Last year the main thing that struck us was the occurrence of many medallion quilts;  this year the recurring theme was to me-Hunter Star blocks!  I saw them large and miniature and tucked in sample quilts-since it is the most recent Accuquilt die I have purchased, I can't wait to put it to use!
 I bought a few things-a pattern using a different paper piecing technique and a kitty inspired charm pack.
Oh, and I brought home this little portable sewing machine I have been eyeing online;  it was on show-sale pricing and I couldn't resist!
It weighs less than half my studio sewing machine!
It will be so much easier to take to classes or to Mom's for sewing days!
What a great blessing to have such an adventure with my Mom and to love being with her!

  4. Argh!! I could have been there. If only I had known I would have flown down for a fews days. My sister just flew in yesterday to join my parents. I've got to get a handle on fun things to do in Daytona and keep a calendar. I usually end up looking once we get there, better to start planning trips around events!

 I am trying to make a summer tank on the knitting machine; a maiden voyage!   After a few false start, it moved right along-even wit...
