Dallas Quilt Celebration 2009

My husband and I were reading the Dallas Morning News yesterday when he showed me the Dallas Quilt Celebration was on the cover of the Guide Live section. The show is at Dallas Market Hall through this weekend. I meant to mention it yesterday at the Blanketeers meeting, but after I passed out the block kits and gave the paper piecing tutorial, I forgot all about it. Oh well. Then after work, out of the blue, my husband asked me if I wanted to go to Dallas for the quilt show! I was surprised; Larry is really wonderful, but not often THAT wonderful. lol He was serious (I wasn't sure at first) and he handled all the logistics, since it's at multiple venues all over Dallas. I'm not sure how many places we'll get to, because we can't leave until noon, but I'll have a full report when I get back. I'm hoping they allow pictures, because Larry offered to be my photographer.

Two of my favorite vendors, Joy's Fabrics & Quilts and Cabbage Rose will be there. I was just at Cabbage Rose last Friday, but I never see Joy anymore, and she used to work in the same building I do. We used to run into each other in the bathroom there, in fact, that's how we met. lol Now I only see her at quilt shows. Joy's hand dyed fabric selection is unbeatable. The green in the Big Top Dear Jane block I finished last Sunday is one of hers. It remains the most beautiful green fabric I have ever seen; I'm going to try to get some more today!

OOOOOOOh, have fun. I must get to a quilt show one of these days.
After finishing that old quilt I think I may shop for another restoration project.
Enjoy the show and isn't that guy special?
