Fabric Fabulous


I must say that our fabric acquisition trip was just fabulous!  We each filled out list first and then if something really called out - we treated ourselves.  My main goal was to get four extra wide backings.  Three traditional quilts and the lime green - Hillside Houses of course.


The dark print is my setting fabric for the rail/colorwash project and the three 30's 1 yard cuts are going into my tote for the Hexie flower project.  Fabulous buy on those.


And my treat - oh my gosh, I have wanted this since it first came out and I saw an original Palampore quilt.  If you know what the price of these were originally, you know I got a fabulous buy at $22.50  If you are not familiar with Palampore, HERE is the history.  Now to start collecting the special fabric bits for the borders that I want to set this in.  And I better learn to use a thimble, because I am hand quiting this baby.

We had a lovely lunch and then wander thru the quaint little town of Windham, NY.  Lovely weather, lovely trip with some fabulous people.

Have a fabulous weekend,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
