Spring Bada-Bing

I applied to be a vendor at an indie craft show in Richmond, Virginia next month and am now wondering if I have the goods to do it! It's the sixth annual Spring Bada-Bing put on by the Richmond Craft Mafia. From the past pics it looks like a lot of fun with cool vendors selling awesome handmade stuff. Sponsors provide each vendor with a 6 ft table and that's your selling space which is perfect for me since I definitely wouldn't be able to fill a walk-in space with my quilts. So...I'm wondering how may quilts I need to fill that space and trying to budget my time accordingly to reach that goal.

I made progress on the modified crazy quilt I started last week. I finished the center block and decided to cut it into a trapezoid shape--for better or worse. I wanted it to add to the wonkiness of the center block.

I also started another quilt with some fuscia Echino Bird Song I've been wanting to use. That fabric is so beautiful I just paired it with some Essex Linen on the back and quilted it in a freemotion meandering quilt with natural colored thread. All I need to finish is the binding. I think I'll use some sort of hot pink.

Did you catch the Super Full Moon show Saturday night? 'Twas beautiful here--clear skies and low light pollution where I live.


  1. Good luck meeting your goal! And the moon photo is beautiful, we had clouds last night in Nebraska, I was a bit disappointed.

  2. Thanks Candace! I'll need it. I figure even if i don't sell anything at the show it will be good to meet some crafty peeps and make connections.
