This is the most delightful quilt store in Windham , NY - The Patchwork Co.
Run by the sweetest Mom & Pop and now joined by their daughter. Emily and I were lucky to stop in between the two quilt shows and there wasn't any crowd - when we were leaving, yes!
I picked up this cute panel (I need another panel like a hole in the head). 'Catnip' by Jenelle Penner for Windham Fabrics.
And if you are a cat person, you totally get this one.
At the Windham Quilt Show I pick this lovely piece up off the guild remnant table. It was marked as 4 yrds, but I think there is closer to six. I made the 'apple' scrap quilt last fall and I think this will be a great backing for it. Design by Joan Kessler for Concord Fabrics. I know some of the apple store scraps I used were also her design - nice marriage.
And I found this two yrd. piece of Laurel Burch "Christmas Cats". I'm not fond of seasonal fabrics, but I love LB's kitties.
Are you starting to sense a theme going on here. These blocks were made by my guild members - blocks for the out-going President to make a 'President Quilt'. One of the light background blocks is under the machine to get a blanket top stitch - the maker might not have had this capability on their machine. So today I will square all of these up and assemble the flimsy. I think it needs a stop border and then wide border to bring it up to size.
I'd like to have this one completed for show & Tell at our next meeting when we return from Summer Break. I'm the next term sitting President and I told them they didn't need to make another set of blocks - huge sigh of relief!
