It was an American Banner Rose Day for me as you can see by the photo above. I was not going to buy fabric, of course, but my favorite LQS put this fabulous fabric on a 40% sale for the 4th of July ... and I even won a free Charm Pack! What a great quilty way to celebrate the day.
I have a mystery plan for this fabric, but it shall have to wait. I am still quilting my Sunflower Wall Quilt ... and then I have some signature blocks to make ... and then I have a special sewing project for my hubby that has been bumped up in the quilty queue. Then back to quilting the other Sunflower Quilt sometime thereafter. A quilter's work is never done.
First here are the photos of the Vermont Quilt Festival. I took some with my camera, but to see the best of the best go here for a fantastic online quilt show ... VQF Quilt Contest Winners with photos. Gorgeous quilts!
From my own pictures of the show I am going to post a photo of one of my personal favorites ...
