The Vermont Quilt Festival and Fabric from Shibori Dragon

Last month was the Vermont Quilt Festival. As usual I went with a friend, and we had a great time. I took no pictures. The winning quilts and more are on the Facebook page of the festival, and at the link above.  Moreover I bought only a small pair of embroidery scissors from Janome purchased at the booth of Bittersweet Sewing from New Hampshire. Very nice dealer and a great festival. It was warm those two days and we had to sit outside under a tent to eat lunch, which is a change from previous years, and one I think was not good, but other than that a fine festival.
I bought no fabric at the festival! I KNOW!  But, after coming home and waiting a few days, I ordered from Shibori Dragon in Tacoma, Washington.  I ordered on a Tuesday and got the package on Saturday following. Such wonderful service, and what beautiful fabrics. Now to finish my Blue Quilt so that I can use some of those lovely Asian fabrics! The crane panel is at the top of this blog. Here is the array of loveliness I need to use!
