IQF Show goodies

Here are the goodies that I got at the IQF Cincinnati show last weekend.

I love these thimbles! Last year,  I think I got 2 and I wore one completely out. No one locally carries them. I got the last small one in the Gadgets booth at the show on Preview Night! :)


These bundles and fabric I got at Sewn on Friday when we shopped around the city.



And this is the haul from Fabric Shack.




And of course, the new HQ Avante'!


When I went back to the show on Saturday, I got this set of grippers for the HQ to lock the wheels for straight line quilting.


I stopped at the Superior booth for some Bottom Line thread and picked up a cone of So Fine. Marj was telling me that she uses the So Fine on her machine for the top thread so I figured I could try it out. If it doesn't work, I can always piece with it. :)



I also got some Aurifil 50 wt for the machine, too. It did so well on the Mega Quilter that it will have to be awesome on the Avante'.


And the newest Scrap Basket book. I'm hoping to find something in these books or the Schnibbles books to use my layer cakes and charm packs on. :)


It has been a while since I shopped and I might have gone a little crazy, but I am so thrilled with everything that I got! Now, if only the Avante will show up soon!!

Great goodies! We're headed to PA tomorrow and I plan on doing some damage at a few of the fabric shops in the area.

Lots of great fabric choices. Thanks for the info on Kim's new book. I had not seen that one yet.

I'm glad you were able to find that book. I've been looking through mine and have found several that I want to make. So many quilts, so little time!

I got one of those thimbles last year after you raved about it and I love it! Like all your other additions too - I use so fine in the bobbin too and really like it and Aurifil also works great on my Avante! You will have a blast trying them all out!
