Fabulous Las Vegas

Oh...there's no place quite like it.

Had a super trip to Vegas for the textile show.

Met up with Marlene, aka Yoyo Mama. We had a ball.

Also hung out with Joyce and Evelyn from the Gathering Place. The Gathering Place is the largest quilt store in Idaho. Great place to shop. They were arriving just after their huge annual sale. Joyce showed us around Vegas. So glad I wasn't driving.

Saw the amazing water show at the Bellagio. Gorgeous weather.

Kept thinking, oh my kids would love this, but then there was some other stuff on the strip, that I thought, oh my...... I think not.

The textile show was so unlike Quilt Market. Quilt Market is enormous, crowded and so busy. This was a nice relaxing show. Calm. Quiet. Very enjoyable.

Here's a peek at a few fabrics that I remembered to take a picture of.


This will be great with the Man in the Kitchen apron pattern.

Red Riding Hood makes me happy.

There's a cute little soft book that goes with it. What would you make out of this?

A little American Vintage for you.

Timber by Jessica Levitt for Windham.

Some Sally Rose

This fabric reminds me of the Farm Chicks.

Gave this to my girlfriend today. Soon I can give her a matching apron.
Have you read their blog lately? Let's talk.

Lots of other fabric coming too...can't wait!

See you tomorrow for the giveaway.


  1. I love to see new fabric!! That American Vintage was a scrapbook paper line by Daisy D's! LOVE the dots. That last fabric with the pies/cakes does remind me of Farm Chicks too! I know exactly what you mean about Vegas - so many fun things for the kids to see and so many things the kids should NOT see (heck adults shouldn't even see some of that stuff!!!!)

  2. Glad you had a fun time, I sure had a fun time looking at all that fabirc....wonderful...thanks for showing it.

  3. I love the little red riding hood fabric! What a great quilt that would make!

  4. Yep...nothing quite compares to Vegas. You are glad you came and glad you don't have to stay!!!

    Love all the fabrics. It sounds like a great show too.

  5. How cute are you in that red shirt??? I bought a new red shirt and thought...."oh dear....we've bought the same thing again". but no, your's is way cuter. And so are you!!

    I love those fabric choices. How did you manage without me??? :)

  6. I love the water show at Bellagio! Also, I love that Red Riding hood fabric. It makes me smile.

  7. I love the vintage fabric. Ive been in this sorta vintagey mood latley. Hope you had a blast in Vegas now its time to take a vacation from you vacation!

  8. I love the red riding hood too! I'd have to make something for my little girl! A dress is the first thing that popped into my mind...and quickly popped out when I thought about clothes sewing... :)

  9. I love Vegas! I've only been once, but does that really matter? It looks/sounds like all of you had a grand time. And I'm getting kinda excited about the American Vintage line...can't wait to see all of it.
