We didn’t even go to the show today, we spent the entire day driving all over NH to 5 different quilt shops.

First up was The Quilt Patch in Bedford, NH (that’s Sue in some of the photos). Cute shop, my mom was in heaven here. And Sue was really sweet. I got a couple of fun prints and some 1/2 price old magazines.

Stop #2 was Peggy Anne’s in Concord. I made out like a bandit at a killer clearance sale they were having on home dec fabrics. Six bucks a yard for Joel Dewberry!! This store was so right up my alley.

Third stop was The Constant Quilter in Andover. This was a real country shop, not so much in my style. But I did find a couple of cute prints and a small quilt map of New England.

4th stop was The Quilting Corner in Tilton. I bought a great pattern for a Santa’s helper apron. I’m totally going to make it and embarrass my whole family by wearing it all of Christmas Day.

And my 5th and final stop was Keepsake Quilting, a ginormous store that is like the Holy Land for quilters. The quilt show has actually been running shuttle bases back and forth to this place, an hour away from Manchester, it’s just that huge. And it lived up to the hype, it was seriously awesome. Even though we weren’t allowed to take any photos inside.

I’m exhausted now but trying to get these photos posted so I’ll remember where we went! We were up and down the state from 9:30 this morning until 6:30 tonight when we got back to Manchester and had dinner. At this pretty decent Italian place called Piccola.

My mom is already out cold, and I think I’ll be following her in 3…2…zzzzzzz.
