shop hop goodies

Daily Quiltspiration - Be sure to add a few neutrals to a scrappy quilt to give your eyes a place to rest.  By the way, a neutral doesn't necessarily mean beige, or white, Freddy Moran considers red to be a neutral as she mentions in her book Collaborative Quilting.

Hello everyone!  I'm sill recuperating from my wild shop hop this past Saturday....seven hours of perusing fabric, good food, lots of laughter and chocolate, what a great way to spend a Saturday. 

I was very, very good and did not spend more money than I had on me and did not whip out the credit card....that was my own personal goal.  I'm waiting for the sales at the end of December....that's when the credit card starts smokin'!  I did buy a few things though....


See?  I told you I was restrained...the roll in the front is a swirly leaf quilting pattern, (yup, I'm actually going to try a little free-motion quilting in the new year and thought this would be a good way to get started)

Two charm packs from Me and My Sisters Designs, so cheery....

A new pattern ...

Only 7 fat quarters (even I can't believe this)...love that pepto-bismol pink fabric...

Yet another kit for a mini quilt (16 x 21)...if I like it, this might become the center of a larger quilt...we'll see. 


  1. Good for you- true restraint! I like the Twist and Turn pattern.

  2. What a fun Saturday. I don't like to shop malls much, but I think I would enjoy fabric store shopping!

    Early this morning I went to the Paper Panache site and bought some foundation piecing patterns. I can't wait to get them!

  3. Mary, my damages were 121.75 - bet you spent more!

    Can't wait to see what your black and white quilt looks like! See you soon

  4. Ok, Michelle, I'll admit it, I did spend a smidge more, but not much! ;-)


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
