It's been quite awhile since I've been shopping in the quilt stores. My DH encouraged me to go out and play today so off I went.
I had a few things in mind that I wanted to search for but no real plan. The picture shows the end result of my shopping trip.
I thought the pink/red on the far left would work for my mini 9 patches that I've been exchanging with Wendy but it won't. :-( The blue print is backing for one of the blue and brown quilts I made last week (must get at least one quilted this week and off in the mail). The next three are for future projects. The red was just because I liked it. I've been searching for the WOW frosted dots by Lakehouse Fabrics so I was happy to purchase 3 yards for a future project. The fat quarters and Laurel Jelly Roll were just because I liked them. All in all a good shopping expedition.
We have many quilt stores here on the Surface of the Sun but I don't get inspired when I visit them. I long for stores like some of you experience - a variety of samples, etc. Maybe I should save some money and take a trip to an area that has some incredible quilt stores - any suggestions? :-)
Thanks for letting me share and thanks for visiting!
