Sully Quilt Show

also posted on:

Kate (my buddy from the NOVA Modern Quilt Guild) and I went to the 2010 Sully Quilt show with my aunt Ginny and MIL Ann last Saturday (the 11th). It rained earlier in the day but by the time we arrived there was just enough cloud cover to keep it shady and just a little cool.
Vendors assembled on the grounds of the 1794 home of Richard Bland Lee for this annual fall event to show and sell new and antique quilts, quilt-related merchandise, other fiber arts, antique linens, antique sewing tools, books, and fabric. 

Surprisingly there were some modern gems mixed in with more traditional prints. I was able to pick up some out of print Amy Butler fat 16ths and an assortment of scraps that just looked fun. I also purchased some adorable stuffed animals made from vintage chenille that were just too cute to leave there. They will make great gifts for all the babies in the family. Kate and I both picked up some fat quarters that had a gray and lemongrass color story. Kate also picked up some great Moda pre-cuts!

Hi! I just found this post through a Google search. I live in Silver Spring and am considering going to the show in September, but I'm not a quilter--just an apparel/accessories sewer. Do you recommend it? It looks like it would be fun in general to go! DC is lacking in their sewing-related activities.
