I had made plans to go on a shop hop with my friend, Stephanie, and certainly a torrential rainstorm couldn't stand between a quilter and discounted fabric! So over Blood mountain we went to the city of Dahlonega, and then back over the mountain to the other two stores. The rain never abated, but we didn't care...there were 25% off bolts to fondle and prizes to be signed up for.
|I have great plans for this Christmas jelly roll and these wonderful co-ordinates|
|(L to R) Backing for the Christmas quilt project, fun yellow cherries, dogs hanging out car windows, alphabetical foodstuffs, and a soft brushed plaid in jewel tones.|
|Soft, cuddly flannels from the Lumberjack collection. I am going to make some bumper pads and a quilt for my soon-to-be-born Grandson's bed.|
|Little cherries, plump red apples, candy stripes (they will make wonderful bindings) ,pine sprigs and chickadees...oh yes, a bag of old fashioned lemon drops. What can I say, I got hungry!|
|More flannel. Pups in space for charity quilts, bacon and eggs, sweet cars, and woolen mittens; the last three will be used on burp cloths for the baby.|
|I now it is out of focus, but I had to share this cute Farm market fabric, too.|
|There was so much rain, this dragon surfaced in the shop's garden! ha ha|
|I added the red border to make the quilt twin size.|
|I got the blocks and extra fabric at a guild yard sale years ago. I'm glad they will finally be somebody's favorite blanket!|
|Panto: Square Spiral, Mr Wazoo's favorite!|
The festival we planned to attend tomorrow has been cancelled, so we will be in the studio again. More rain forecast for tomorrow.
Get out the snorkels and mud boots!!
