Kept In Stitches

Confessions of a fabric hoarder

 


It seems that this time of year there is always a quilt show on the weekend to go to. A friend gave me two tickets to a show I had never heard of. The show was in Yucaipa, put on by the Citrus Belt Quilters Guild…about an hour and a half or so from Los Angeles (maybe less, with the way Greg drives!). With our ‘7 Eleven’ cups full and a tank of gas, we were off! With the weather still warm and beautiful it would have been a shame to stay indoors on such an incredibly sunny day. I really had no expectations on how this quilt show would be. Wow, I was very impressed with such diverse quilts at this show. The show was small and had a limited amount of vendors…but wow, I really enjoyed these quilts. All the guild members were very nice and well organized.

The night before the show I had a dream that I was in their guild’s boutique booth and I stumbled across a HUGE bag of printed selvage scraps. Oh yeah, and the bag was $1.00 from the entire bag. Did I mention the bag was HUGE? Greg and I discussed my dream on the way to the show and just laughed. I later visited one of the vendor booths at the show and met Marguerette Tate of M&M Creations. What a delightful lady and she is very talented. It took me only minutes to find my purchase. I fell in love with this teddy bear and had to have it. Those of you whom have had experience working with selvage creations know the time that goes in to creating these works of art. My new sewing studio buddy sits approx. 8 inches tall and he will be right at home in my studio. She had some made from wool and others from regular quilters cotton fabric.I don’t think Marguerette has a website but if you click on her name above you will get her email.
