Here are the two things I bought at Quilt Expo. The Pretty 'n Pink pattern is from Don't Look Now, an Australian design company. She has a similar free pattern on her website, if you like this one. I think her designs are so new and cute.
The Cotton Theory book has been demonstrated on Sewing With Nancy. I like the idea, but it looks like there is a lot of cutting involved, esp. the batting.
One of my friends who went with me to Quilt Expo is new to quilting and she bought some really great finds. She just got a Bernina and is anxious to try out lots of things. We are going to have a session on paper piecing soon. It is one of my favorite techniques, so I guess I am the designated teacher.
