Fat Quarterly Retreat - the loot

Luckily, I had 3 manly men with me on this trip to carry all my stuff! We started with a Liberty goody bag filled with all sorts of great junk and coupons. I immediately set the coupons aside for safe keeping and I've never seen them again - GRR.

tools & scraps & threads & tacks & fq & charms &..
Kona delivered by Cindy @ FluffySheepQuilting!

My haul - so pretty!
Many of us took a little field trip to this shop

Poring over the Liberty with Kathy & Rachael
hmm, how much can I carry..

joined the mob to snag a Liberty Keychain from Hadley!

The Sample Swap was really great. My partners were Jan (who was lucky I didn't steal her bag) she made the cute keychain pouch and Liberty pin, Catherine who made the awesome Liberty pillow cover and the cool crazy hoop was made by Reene - love everything!

 a couple of other adorable swappy things flying around the terrace:
cool mug rugs made by Leanne

SUCH a cool tote!!
 and finally - Quilt Market!

I had a ball and found a few really great things:

autographed by the Cool Katy herself!
Lu's new book!

Neutral Ice Cream bundle from Village Haberdashery & designed by Sarah

gems from Eternal Maker
 and quite a few other things. I'm really kicking myself for not grabbing an Oakshott bundle!



  1. Everything sounds so fun, the loot, the classes, what did your manly men do when not toting around your goodies.

  2. looks like you had a blast!

  3. Great swag! I walked around Shaukat looking stunned because I'm not used to see so much fabric loveliness in one place. I don't have a local quilt store even. I thought I was going to need a sit down in a quiet corner to recover ;-)

  4. Looks like a fun time...and good call on the typewriters ;)

  5. Great haul there! I'm sure if you ask Michael Oakshott, he'll give you the code from your lost vouchers so you can indulge online ;o)


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! Sure beats talkin' to myself! :-)
