IQF - New Goodies and Toys

My goodies from Friday.

I talked with Alex Anderson a bit about "The Quilt Show" and how much I enjoyed the first two shows. Alex and Ricky are a great team and the show is very good.
I was a big fan of Simply Quilts and very sad when it went off the air. I do have all the show on VCR tape and DVD so I will not be lost when I need to know how to do something.
I love markers and will have fun using them.
I love Tulips and this is going to be fun to make.
I have my own design for tulips that I made from photos of my own flowers years ago. It was before the digital camera and before I thought to take photos of the quilts I sold at craft shows.I am collecting blue, green and yellow fabrics for a quilt for our bedroom.
I have EQ5 and just love it.
I was not going to get the new version because I am very happy with EQ5. After see the demo of EQ6 and all the new changes I was hooked.

I never have enough threads. The 4 spools on the right are red, white and blue.

Beads, Beads and more Beads.

Back in March I asked Suzanne from Art, Quilts, and Other Adventures blog for help with beading on my quilts. Suzanne gave me great information on what kind of beads, threads, needles and what books to get. As you can see I took her advice. Suzanne thank-you for your help!

I still have more to show you in the next few days. Can you tell how much I love going to the IQF? I love the Quilts and spend most of my time looking at the quilts but I do shop on Friday. I save money all year just for the show.

Some great buys!

You're right, those markers look like a lot of fun to play with - I haven't done much drawing on fabric, but I saw some landscape quilts that had been shaded and refined with markers, and they were beautiful.

I want to try those oil paint sticks too, seen them?
