Yesterday after the Mega Quilter and frame were moved out, I ran a couple of errands, went to a couple of quilt shops and went to a quilt show. The first quilt shop was Stitches where I got some tools for the Avante. I will show those later today when I get some pictures. :)
At the quilt show, I picked up a book of patterns for Civil War fabrics. I have quite a stash of reproduction fabrics and I think this will help me use some of them.
There were some great quilts and inspiration at the quilt show! I will show those later as well. :)
Since I was so close to Fabric Shack already, I just had to stop into the Village Family Restaurant for some peanut butter pie and lunch before heading to the Shack. Even though I was just at the Shack in April with the Southern Invasion, I didn't shop for projects because I wasn't sure what I was going to need. Today, I picked up the fabrics that I will need for a quilt for my cousin who lost everything in a fire in March.
I think that I am ending up with a fall colored quilt, but they are fairly masculine colors so it should be OK.
And here are all of the fabrics together. I have since pulled out a few that I felt muddied the others.
Now, I just need to find time to start cutting. I am using the Sweet Treat pattern from Judy L.
