Happy National Quilting Day! I hope you are all having a wonderful day celebrating quilts, quilting, and quilters. I left with my friend at 8:30 to get to Sister's in time for the opening. There was a great sale with 20% off your entire purchase. This was my first trip to this store, and I will be going back. It is a small store, but it is jam packed with wonderful fabrics. There was a wall of very bright prints, many shelves ordered by color, a section of 30's reproductions, civil war reproductions, and the largest selection of flannels I have ever seen. As promised, here are the goodies I came home with.
Sister's also has a wonderful collection of pre-cut fabrics. I found this Bali Pops, and I love the colors. I was looking for something to make another quilt from Kim Barrett's book. This will be perfect. I also bought background fabric. I wonder where that got? I am going to have to look for that.
I had a great time today. When I got home, I put together two more blocks of market baskets - figs and limes this time. This is going to be a very fun quilt. Now, I need to go put lines on the light squares for the HSTs. When I get done with the big quilt, I will have 150 small HSTs to do something fun with. No waste with this quilt, and no scraps for the scrap bin. This is a good thing.
