Also at the show were several vendors selling kits, panels, patterns, and gift items. The quilt shown below is a flannel kit called 'Dino Stomp' by Northcott that local shop Thimbletowne was showcasing. The characters on this piece are so bright and colorful, I just had to buy a panel. I was pleasantly surprised to find when I unpackaged it at home that the panel was a full 36" x 44," plenty big enough for a child's quilt without any added borders.
Also at the show, the ladies of the guild were selling items they had made. It was all I could do to stop myself from buying placemats, totes, book covers, pin cushions, etc. I must admit Rhea showed real restraint when she didn't choke when I started to buy a fat-lady pin cushion. My eyes aren't what they used to be, and the fancy handwriting looked to me like $5 when in reality it was $45. When the vendor quoted the price plus tax, I apologetically declined to make the purchase.
