Links you'll love: Sept. 11

I took the afternoon off today. There was a quilt show in Madison, Wisconsin Thursday-Saturday and with a dear friend's wedding on Saturday in Illinois, the only way I could get to the show was to take the afternoon off. I worked hard all morning to feel like I could justify not working that afternoon, and zip, zip, I was in Madison by 2pm. Since the show was open until 6pm, I felt confident that I could cover the entire show floor, and I did. I didn't buy much fabric for the stash (good thing, right), but I did find a few things I'd been looking for and I saw a bunch of great quilts. I'll upload them and share them over the course of the next week. But writing of sharing, how about I share some links!
