It's Vegas instead of Houston this year (unless I win the lottery between now and the first week of November). But the airfare was better if we spent extra days, and since the hotels are free, it's a 7 day trip this year--lots of time to shop hop the local quilt shops this trip. Even better if I can win some money in the casinos to spend (maniacal laughter).
Here's some more Lancaster photos with close ups of the fabulous stitching to give you some inspiration.
This one was just amazing:
And I loved the embellishments on this one.
How do you know how to fill in with the stitches? These artists always seem to pick the right stitching to fill in areas to best convey the texture. I wonder if there's a class for this?
