Day 2 of Crafty Chicas Weekend!

NOTE: Please click on these photos to enlarge them so you can
truely appreciate the amazing details of these quilts!

After the most fabulous homemade breakfast at Amy's house, we headed off to
the Long Beach Convention Center for the International Quilt Festival.

One of my favorite booths at the show was Lazy Daisy Cottage! I love these fun bright prints and we met the fabric designer and her hubby. I wanted all of these fabrics, but I had to control myself, there was still so much more to see, so I walked away with one charm pack :)

How gorgeous is this? The center of the sunflower is all beaded by hand! Awesome!

This quilt was fun and colorful, but not really a favorite of mine,
but the 3 ladies in the photo are definately favorites :)

How cute is this quilt?
I am so in love with this fabric!
It's called Breath of Avignon and yes, I already own this fabric :)

Here's Amy and Denise at the American Jane booth.
I would have taken the entire booth home if  I could have.
Those are definately my colors!

I had to take a picture of this quilt for Regena :)
Isn't it cute?
Here's another picture of the Lazy Daisy Cottage booth.
The quilts and the fabrics are just soooo yummy!

This quilt pattern can be found HERE
I love love love this little quilt!
I mean seriously.....?

We stopped by Birdbrain Designs booth. (Remember the fabulous Perle Cotton bubbles?)
I picked up some more Perle Cotton and Amy and Regena
also picked up a few fun items they couldn't go home without!
The 2 sisters who own it were so sweet and helpful :)
Amy was having too much fun at the Bernina booth.
(Don't you just love Regena's smile?)
Here we are with our treasures in tow and our sore feet.
Happy and ready to head back to Amy's for pizza and some time to
drool over our purchases :)
This is what I came home with. Quilt batting, fat quarters,
 charm packs, yardage and some perle cottom.
Let the crafting begin!!!!
