The Original Sewing and Quilt Expo Baltimore 2014, Day 3 (Saturday)

On Saturday morning, I had time between breakfast and the Expo opening to trim up the rest of my blocks.  I had them all put away before I had to get everything packed into the car and check out of the hotel.  I didn't need to bring anything more than the half-square triangle blocks.  Evidently, 300 of the little buggers is enough for one little trip.

When I got home from the Expo, I found that I had received the patterns I ordered from Serendipity Studios.  I picked up the skirt pattern at Bear's Paw, a local quilt shop and liked it so much I went to their webpage to buy some more.  Sorry about the quality of the picture.

I didn't spend much money at the Expo.  I had plenty of time at the Expo to think about my purchases, and speak with different vendors and find all the things I wanted.  There were other things I wanted, but only one thing I really, really wanted that was already sold out.  I did pick up some scrap bags full of batiks.  I have a soft spot for batiks.  Two one-pound bags of scrappy goodness.  I see some fun blocks in my future.  I also picked up the clear, 1/4" foot for my sewing machine.  I have the metal one, but wanted the clear plastic one.  The coolest find, was the Mini Hex-n-More ruler.  I think I love this little thing precisely because it is little.  It is so wicked cute!  I have no idea what I'm going to make with it, but I had to have it.  To make up for what I didn't spend at the Expo, I came home and bought some thread from Superior Threads.  I was a little let down that there wasn't a thread vendor at the Expo.

When I got home, I stacked up my squares for my Split 9-Patch Leaders and Enders project.  I'm looking forward to this one piecing up while I do other things.  It sits beside my sewing machine, ready to go.
