New Friends in Folsom

Met up with two new friends from my Primitive Yahoo group at the Folsom Quilt Show on Saturday. They are lovely ladies and we all had the best time looking at the quilts and having lunch at a Mexican restaurant after the show! Only got to take one picture of this gorgeous applique quilt at the show before my camera died, but I'm happy that I got this one. We laughed after the show when we discovered that we all purchased some of the same fabric that is shown in the first two photos. Thought the fabric would go well in the Spencer Museum quilt that I am making.
A wonderful home dec store in Folsom is going out of business (sad!), so was able to purchase the birds for 40% off. The white bird was sitting on a green painted box in the store, but I thought I can paint my own little box? Purchased the paper mache box and green paint at Michaels, and will paint/prim it up with some brown shoe polish. Fell in love with the Mr. Jingles Santa Doll pattern by Reets' Rags to Stitches. It was adorable in person, so need to get it finished before the holidays next year.

What is that lovely fabric with your applique blocks? Have you decided how many Spencer blocks you will do? How fun to meet up with these ladies.

I think it's a sign that you've had a great time at the quilt show when you come home with no pics *s* Love your purchases!

Sounds like a lovely time! Nice purchases! Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

Hi Dixie,
Finally found your blog, and yes, didn't we have fun? You got one of the blackbirds! I should have, but I did get the blackbird pin and wore it home today.
I look forward to seeing more of your Spencer Museum blocks, and more of you and Sandy, especially if you get down this way.
Thanks again for the fun!

I'm so glad I came over to visit, what gorgeous blocks and thank you for sharing the photo.

The applique quilt is just gorgeous!

Guess you and your friends think alike having all purchased the same fabric. I would have purchased it, too.
