I had the opportunity this week to visit with a quilty friend Bon who was on the east coast visiting a friend of hers. They came out for a day... a glorious sunny day of Shop Hopping... as that is what quilters do best isn't it?
But - what do you do if the quilters friend isn't a quilter? She is a sewer but not a quilter and we wouldn't want her to be totally bored.
You add Antique Shops in as you go through the day!
We all found great little useful things at all the places we stopped... and 7 yards of fabric followed me home... OK yes - I did in fact pay for it to follow me home.
2 yards of black on white polk-a-dot. I love Dots! One of these days I want to just use dot fabrics to make a quilt... Big Dots, Little Dots, Colorful Dots... there's lots of dots to use.
The other 5 yards ($2.29 a yard) is an ocean fish print for the back of my grandsons quilt... who is waiting patiently for his Granny to finish his quilt. Look he's practicing sitting up.
Isn't he a cutie!!
I think that without this Stashbusting report every week I'd have a lot more fabric following me home... stuff I just wanted because - well you know... just because! I don't get all those 'just because' fabrics - I do still buy things that will go with a collection I already have started, western prints, florals, and B&W's... and I'm more conservative than I use to be with those.
So Thanks Judy L for helping us keep an eye on the fabric bottom line...
