Oh, just look what was sitting at my door when I got home from the Antique Mall (more on that another day...this is just too exiting to wait). Did I tell you that my very best friend in the whole wide world (Hi again, Claudia) and another very dear friend (Hi, Julie) own a quilt store just northeast of Houston? I don't think I did but that's who this package is from. They don't do online orders (yet????) as they have only been open for a little under two years. The shop is called The Quilt Room and is just as cute as can be. Their website is under construction right now but if you are in the area just bookmark it then give them a call and they will give you directions. You won't want to miss it or them.
I cut right into that package and what's this? It's a tote bag from one of their vendors. I really need a tote bag for the NQA Quilt Show in June. Now I won't have to make one!! I have another project in mind with what is under that tote bag.
Want to see what it is?? Sure you do!! It's from a quilt store, isn't it?
Oh, just lookie there. I see fat quarters. Sweet '30's fat quarters. I just love the "30 reproductions. In fact, I love all the reproduction fabrics. I'm a traditional quilter at heart. I love the basic scrappy, vintage quilts the best. I think I've probably mentioned that before. You are probably thinking you would like to see it all laid out.
Wow!! Just look at that haul!! If I counted right it is 17 yards of cuteness. I tried to count it as it was going into the washing machine. That's right, it's already in the washer. Since I already know what I am doing with this cuteness, I'm just chomping at the bit(there's my Texas-ness coming out) to get started on it. In fact, I might ought to go check and make sure it's not ready for the dryer.
It was ready and now is in the dryer. Sheesh! Don't you just hate the way all those threads ravel and knot up the fabric. It's a real pain. Have you found a way to circumvent that jumble? Leave me a comment with your hints, PLEASE!!
Well, I guess this is long enough and plenty of pictures for one day. I'll be attached to my iron shortly. I don't have to worry about getting supper since hubby is in Minneapolis on business. I bought a rotisserie chicken and some fresh broccoli on the way home. Sounds like a plan. Happy Quilting!!
