A Grand Day Out at the Sarasota show

My gal-pals and I took a road trip to Sarasota today for a show and a mini shop-hop. It was just the thing for a cool sunny day in Florida. The show didn't fail to entertain and the vendors were drool worthy. I bid on a set of antique dresden plate blocks, but I'm not getting my hopes up because the show is on again tomorrow. We'll see.
After the show, we had a filling lunch at the Amish restaurant, then set off to three local shops for some quality fabric fondling. Everyone bought something, helped the local shops stay in business ( we are a caring bunch, aren't we?) and agreed it was a wonderful diversion from the daily grind. Home again, home again, jiggidy jog so the girls could make their dinner dates with the husbands.
I made a little slideshow of the quilts that tickled MY fancy. I hope you like them, too!

Mel2's comment

Amazing Jelly Roll Quilt Pattern by 3 Dudes!

Hi everyone, I had a comment from Mel2 (another blogger) but am unable to find a way to answer her (him?)
I make loads of quilts, mostly from patterns in books, magazines, and free tutorials and patterns found on line. I don't design many things, but when I do, they are mostly pictorial or whimsical quilts for one challenge or another.
I love that other people have the time and talent to design patterns for us drawing and math challenged quilters! I get inspiration from nature, architecture, photographs and sometimes from out of my own imagination. It seems there are so many quilt ideas swimming around in my head, I don't have room for much else there!
As for you, Mel2, email me and ask what quilt pattern you like, and I will try to send you an answer and even the directions for it.
Thanks for your interest in WAZOO! quilting!
