On the road… Raffle quilt ….fabrics

I saw this beautiful raffle quilt on a display in Chestertown, Maryland.

I bought two tickets so wish me luck! 🙂
It will benefit Crossroads Community Foundation.

I was on a search for a quilt shop, but the town didn’t have one and then I saw it!

Chestertown had a lot of little shops that was a pleasure to window shop. We enjoed the view of the frozen river.

On the drive home I found a quilt shop called “Quilter’s hive” in DE. They were having a class and had a lot of fabric.

I wasn’t looking for any specific fabric so I got half a yard of this pretty print. I usually get in a lot of trouble at quilt shops, so I did good! 🙂

After I was so good, I realized I need backing for one of my PhD projects, so I ordered online from delta patchwork some fabrics.

I love the packaging and the fabric was very nice, too.

Happy sewing!

What a Surprise from Millie!

I got a package in the mail yesterday. It was a big box full of goodies from my friend Millie. She deleted her blog by mistake and I felt so bad for her, after all the time and love she put into it. I am so excited she decided to blog again!
I opened the box and I found this pretty bag!!! I love the colors and the pink tissues 🙂
She must of gone crazy to send me so much stuff, I was stunned! She sent me lots of pretty fabrics, a wonderful book “Easy Does it for Friends”, a very cute card and a box of chocolates. I started eating them right away! 🙂

I have never seen these fabrics or this book. It is amazing how every shop has different fabrics!
There is a very cute Christmas panel. I will show it after I make it into a wall hanging! 🙂
I love these pastel colors, there are so feminine!
This is a view of one of the pages of the book and I made a “border” around it with the fabrics from Millie! This is the cutest book I’ve seen! I like all the projects in it!
I can’t say enough Thank You Millie!

Four Quilt Shops on the way to Chicago from PA

I got this two winter fabrics at the first shop “Heirloom Quilting and Antiques “ we stopped at.
I was on the way out when I saw the sheep fabric and I had to get half a yard for the quilt I will make for my mom. She and my dad used to have a mini farm with one or two sheep we used to butcher every year.
After that we visited a little quilt shop that I didn’t find inspiration fabric, so I was good and didn’t buy anything. Next, we visited “The Door Mouse” which is a must see shop in Ohio. They’ve got lots, lots bolts. I got a lot of Christmas fabrics and I couldn’t resist the butterfly fabric 🙂 My husband has a great taste, he picked these fabrics and I will sew the quilt! Pretty!

“Quiltology” is a very modern city shop in Chicago. They have bright colors, lots of Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

I got a neat Blue Santa panel and some fabrics that will go with some of my stash. I wanted to get some of the Amy Butler fabrics, but I felt guilty because I have a few yards in hand and haven’t done much with it. I loved the green tissue paper the owner wrapped my purchases, so I took the picture with it.
