I need to whine! I hope you don't mind but I seriously need to whine!
A couple of nights ago I popped into a local quilt store to make a small purchase for a giveaway ( Hi Debby). I seldom visit the local quilt stores because as you already know - I hate to go out. :-) And, I don't do much shopping because the budget is very tight.
I looked above one of the cutting tables and the Angels sang - ahhhhhhh (loud, too)
I was instantly smitten - in love - downright crazy about the quilt hanging above the cutting table.
Be still my quilting heart.
Why was I at the cutting table - I didn't need to have anything cut - BIG BIG SIGH!!!!
The cute sign on the quilt said "kit available" - hmmmm - took a gander over the kit section and sure enough there they were. Sadly, the price $80 was way over my budget. So I asked if they had just the 13 fat quarters required - nope - all gone. :-( See if they'd had just the fat quarters then I could have improvised for the rest of the required fabric (it needs a couple of yards of a background fabric - I have a bolt of white) and there is a yard piece required that was also gone but surely I could find it on line (I've looked and it's definitely available). I can get the fat quarters on line, as well, but I don't know which ones were used and besides I can only find fat quarter bundles.....I only need 13 fat quarters. The fat quarter bundles are approx $75 - might as well just buy the kit - it would be cheaper.
I failed to mention that the fabric is Flea Market Fancy.
Did you hear the angels? LOL
So, I took my sad little face home. Sigh!
I'm whining because I can't stop thinking about the silly kit so I figured if I whined the moment would pass.
Feel free to laugh at me - just the whims of a quilter. LOL
I'm sewing and thinking about the kit that will never live at my house - LOL
