During and after the retreat I went to two quilt shops. And shop, I did! I knew I wanted to buy more white neutrals -
This jellyroll fit the bill!
I fell in love with this panel-like Christmas fabric from Moda. I've been wanting to make a Christmas quilt. I love that these images do not have a true Christmas red - more of a rusty red. (You know I'm not a big fan of red.)
They also had all the coordinating fabrics for this panel, but I used my will power. They also had a cute pattern to go with it. Again, will power. I'll use my stash to do something fun.
I do love the color ORANGE! So I couldn't pass up this pretty fat quarter.
I added three half yard cuts of Kaffe Fassett to my stash.
I bought several yards of this Kaffe -one of my friends insisted I need it for a backing for my Marmalade quilt. She's right, it will be perfect!
You know I'm a big fan of Jen Kingwell. She's going to be teaching at this particular shop (Intown Quilters in Decatur, GA) this weekend and they had a great supply of her stuff. I picked up this pattern - and I have another one coming soon that is on backorder.
The store had also prepared these little packs of fabric for use in Jen Kingwell's classes - I bought one of them, also.
Lastly, I picked up some hand quilting needles and thread. What? Me? Yes! I'm planning on hand quilting a quilt. I know, crazy, right?
Yesterday I unpacked completely, did laundry, and went to the grocery store (in the rain - yuck!), but at least I had my Kaffe Fassett umbrella to keep me dry. Last night I even made meatloaf with baked sweet potatoes. I had more energy than I thought I would. Last night I finished the appliqué on the Block 2 of the Rowdy Flat Library Quilt! Photo tomorrow...
This afternoon we are meeting some movers to help us rearrange our storage unit. We'll be moving some things to Daughter 2's new home next month and it will help so much to get her stuff to the front. But I do hope to sew this morning!
Have a fun day, everyone!
