First Quilt Show

Tomorrow morning I am heading off to Bracebridge with some friends to attend my first quilt show of the year.  It may very well be my only one.  I wasn't able to get to the Lindsay show last week as I had another commitment and most of the others are too far away for this aging body. 
I am looking forward to the day for a number of reasons: being with friends, seeing what is new in quilting, looking at some wonderful eye candy and escaping the bugs.  They have really been getting to hubby and I this year.  I guess you could say they are driving us buggy!
It seems that every time we open the door enough bugs fly in to carry away our little dog.  We then spend the next hours or so swatting the dratted creatures.  They really are quite bad this year.  I am thankful I don't work outside.  It must be dreadful for construction workers or farmers right now.
I bought a new product a couple of days ago and I don't like it.  It is sheets of paper with fusible on one side so you can use your printer to make copies of applique pieces.  I followed the instructions but was only able to get one sheet to actually go through properly.  I used two printers and the paper stuck in both of them.  It is called Ink Jet Printable Fusible Web by the Tailor company. If you have had any success with it, please let me know as perhaps I just got a bad lot. 
I went back to the old way of tracing my shapes on fusible and completed the sections needed for my baby quilt.  Once I have done the machine stitching I will add the sashing and another top with be done.

  1. Anna, I have had problems with June Tailor products in the past. I called them and was sent replacements. Hope you can get the same help.
