Quilt Show #1

I know that the week is almost over and I am just getting to blog about my trip to the Long Beach Quilt Show, but I want everyone to know that I had a GREAT time! My DH drove me and my "Little Person" to the quilt show. He took the "Little Person" to the Aquarium, while I wandered around the show in awe.

There was no way that you could get lost in Long Beach because all you had to do is follow the hordes of women carrying lots of bags! Or just follow all of the buses filled with women! I think that they were predicting somewhere around 10,000 visitors.
My DH took this of me before I went into the Quilt Show. (Notice NO packages!) And by the way, I decided not to bring the cute messenger bag that I made because I knew that it was going to be too small! So, I opted for a larger, roomier bag that could EXPAND if need be!(What cute colors for the entrance sign!)When I went inside, I devised a strategy- scan all of the booths, look at the quilts, eat, and then revisit vendor booths to make purchases. Hah! This was a great idea but the first booth that went to had quilts from the Fig Tree Trunk Show and lots of Fig Tree stuff. Right then and there, I knew that I was going to be in TROUBLE! LOL!

This booth was done by Cotton & Chocolate (such a cute name). I just wanted to take those quilts down and put them in my bag because I love the colors!
Well stay tuned for more about my trip to the Quilt Show! Until next time.....Happy Quilting!
