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,

How wonderful! So glad you all had such a good time! You know I'm loving that lime green :*) And I have no idea at all about Palampore quilts, so I'm off now to check out your link and get my learning on for the day!
That is a gorgeous panel. I can't wait to see what you do with it. It sounds like it was an amazing trip.
A very successful fabric gathering trip. Looking forward to seeing all these new acquisitions in action soon.
