Wisconsin Fabric Haul and WI Sightings

So here are the fabrics that I got on the recent Wisconsin Quilt Shop Hop.  I adore everything I got, which includes some delightful sampler linen and some red velvet.  Also Primitive Gatherings had some scrumptious Japanese fabric that was marked down a bit.


Here are the patterns I got.  Adore all of these.  Isn't Spot the Horse irresistible?

And here is the Sue Daley wall hanging to flimsy stage:
I love it!  But I hated doing those 1/4" on the side hexagons!  I created them by not only gluing them to the template but gluing them to the background :-).  Then it was inevitable to tack them down with thread as well.  

Quick and unscheduled stop at an antique mall fortunately led to finding the vintage cardboard suitcase (and an early 1900s cotton nightgown for only $9).  Seen at this mall, and please explain to me........why was this necessary lol......?

A quilt for sale...

Then it was off to the Cheddar Antique Quilt Show at the old farmstead (Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts).  Others have shown the wonderful quilts, so I will just show my arty shots of the exteriors:










I believe this is the first shot at Ye Olde Schoolhouse; lots of good shots of that so will show in next post.

Wow! What a great haul of goodies!! I have been wanting to get to the Wisconsin Museum of Fiber.

The sewing machine...that's a hoot! Maybe they needed to roll it from one room to the next for their sewing pleasures? I have no idea.

beautiful fabrics and fun patterns. Love the horse.
Those buildings are beautiful. I love stone barns.

I see some 'browns' - a yummy haul for you! Mostly a fabulous time enjoying a trip with a friend and talking, shopping, viewing quilts, doesn't get much better than that. Jo

Karen -

You were at Ye Olde Schoolhouse! My old "home" quilt store in Cedarburg, WI? Jeannie? Diane? I took all of my classes from Diane. You drove by my old family homestead on your way there. My grandparents or great-grandparents most likely attended school in the (now) quilt shop and my family name is on the plat map hanging by the cash register. This is where I found your patterns and found you on the blog!

Don't you love that area!
