|Waterwheel House Quilt Shop had an amazing array of Kaffe Fasset fabric! |
Seriously drool worthy. There is even more on the wall behind me in this picture!
|I just loved this quilt in the book Quilt Talk, by Sam Hunter.|
|Gracie, the resident |
was so tired from all that shop hopping! Luckily they provided us
with snacks to keep us going strong!
|I was so excited to see this wall of Cotton + Steel fabrics at Country Treasures |
Quilt Shop. They even had some hard to find prints from the first release!
|Right next door to Country Treasures we found this gem with my name on it!|
(Back up plan if this whole corporate job thing doesn't work out perhaps??)
It was a fun day! We took back roads to the first shop and had fun admiring all of the country towns along the way. We also stopped at the Vermont Country Store on our way home and got to taste test all kinds of yummy cheeses and snacks. Enough of that though. You want to see what I brought home with me!
I also found this amazing 100 Piece charm pack of the Denyse Schmidt Moderns Solids. I can't even begin to describe how soft these solids are. I started right in on Saturday afternoon when I got home and started making 1" hexis with them. If I use the whole pack I'll end up with 400 EPP Hexis! Eeekkk! I'm thinking about making a modern hexi quilt, using the tutorial from Modern Handcraft.
This Robert Kaufman fabric is part of the Fusions Ombre Collection. It will be the backing for the commission quilt i'm working on finishing up this week. I'll have more details to share about that at a later date.
I used up the last of my Heather Ross Nanny Bee fabric last week on a quilt for a good friends school auction. I was so excited to find more of it at Waterwheel House! I also got this Kaffe Fasset 1/8 of a yard cut for super cheap. Loved the colors!
Finally, at Country Treasures I found these great Cotton + Steel fabrics. They still had the metallic arrows from the Melody Miller Mustang collection on the bolt. It's been so hard to find I instantly grabbed it when I saw it. I also found this lovely and rich Cotton Lawn by Alexia Marcelle's Hatbox collection. I used some of the lawn in my Two Birds, One Stone quilt and was really impressed with how soft and nice to work with it was. In a moment of luck they gave me a 1/2 yard free because the bolt had been cut in the middle! Win! Finally from the August collection by Sarah Watts I found this cute lion print. I'm going to use it to make fabric baskets for the locker I share with my Mom at the gym.
Linking up with Sunday Stash.
