Stash Report Week 19, 2013

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.

I love those fabrics. That will make a nice quilt! I'll have to peek at that book. I'll be headed to Martingale/Patchwork Place for a tour at the end of the month. I usually do it to see the quilts in the office and visit the hurt book room to pick up older titles at a deep discount.

It's really neat to see the book quilts up close and personal.

The fall colors are great. Looking forward to the quilt you make with the fabrics.

That is a nice book, but my word is finish :). How funny that you picked that pattern from Judy. I printed that off yesterday and thought about taming some scraps.
