Fabric Shopping Trip!

Well, I went shopping today. I was really trying to make this little quilt from my stash as much as possible. But my stash and my partner's preferences are not meshing very well. So today, when both of my kiddos were at other activities, I hit the road to Waynesville. There is a very nice fabric shop there with lots of friendly people. The shop is packed with bolts and bolts of lovely fabrics and I loaded up. A bit more than I intended, but you can always use it up in something! If you live in Southwestern Ohio and haven't been there already, you should go. And if you don't live here - they have a website, too!

Tonight I plan to decide how to use all my lovely new fabrics and tomorrow get started on the cutting. I should have taken a photo when I brought them home; but I've already popped them in the wash. I still have plenty of time to get this quilt done and in the mail before the deadline, but I really want to have it well underway. These last few days of summer will fly quickly by as I get the kids ready to go back to school.

Happy Quilting!!

I really need to make up my mind which quilt to make. I've always wanted to make one of these. I made this layout awhile ago; when I made the pink and black Petite Bento Box quilt. But I could easily change the colors around for my current quilt.

So many little time...
