the one about stopping at a quilt shop....






Aren't those just lovely... I fell in love with them a couple of weeks ago when 2 friends and I went to a couple of quilt shops about 90 miles from here. I fondled them at least 4 times before we left. And yes, I left without them. Not sure why, except I am not prone to buying fabric without a purpose. I kept thinking these looked like Home Dec fabrics and would love to be able to buy bolts and bolts and make new curtains, pillows and more for my bedroom. BUT...we have our house on the market and I am NOT redecorating this bedroom. I don't know what type or how many windows will be in the next bedroom so I couldn't buy it and just hope I have enough... could I?

Turns out I could...

and did...

How? Yesterday I drove out to watch 3 grandkids and guess where they just happen to live? Yep... about 3 miles from that quilt shop. I left a bit early, walked in, held my breath while I located the bolts and then scooped some up. There isn't enough for curtains and such...but I did buy 8 yards total and could see a small quilt for the end of the bed and some matching pillows...

I have recently seen some quilts done in black and yellow...I think it is a new trend. Those are very pretty fabrics you got!

Hi Nancy,
They are lovely fabrics...sometimes you just have to give in to your desires :) I'm sure you will make a lovely quilt with them.
