What's a blog post without photo's - even when I take the blurriest ones ever! I have been really good at using stash and scraps all year and thought I needed something NEW! Hancock's of Paducah had a 20% off your total order sale and these two FQ bundles were already on sale - so one came out 40% off and the other 50% off - plus I had a usable code for free shipping - YEAH! The 'Vintage Sunshine' by Ellen Crimi Trent for Clothworks is earmarked for a pattern already - hopefully Novemeber fun. And the 'Softly Spoken' by Marcus Brothers is being added to some other collected fabric for a 'Heritage Stars' (McCall's Quilting) for 2015 - yes, I am planning out 2015 already.
Our LQS moved location and we had to go visit their new shop. My Mom had a 20% off Birthday coupon (if you are on their mailing list they send you a birthday card with coupon - Quilt Bug). And we thought it a good time to do a little leaf peeping at the same time - we are almost at peak. This was right as you walked in the door, brand new, just had the shrink wrap removed, new smelling, calling my name. 'Tuxedo Cats' @ Exclusively Quilters - there was a whole line, but I just bought the panel - Moe would have been so upset if I passed this by.
My SIL and I both fell in love with this Christmas line and decided to split a panel.....
as well as some of the coordinates. This is a Bee Sturgis Design for Quilting Treasures. Jeri picked up an armful of FQs and my Mom picked out an applique pattern with a few fabrics for it. We had lunch out and then took a long scenic drive home - leaf peeping.
OK - time to announce the winner of September's Barn Quilt Pin and 8-Pointed Star Charm:
#2 - Christine @ MacDonaldsPatch
I will contact her for mailing info - thank you ladies who linked up, hope you play again in October, and help spread the word.
