The greatest thing happened this morning. All my plans/appointments fell through! So I sat in the van with the heat running, wondering what to do after dropping my youngest off to preschool. Quilt shop? HECK YEAH! I checked my cash situation and there was the funds from the flea market. EVEN BETTER - it's the last Friday of the month and our local quilt shop shop has 40% off when you buy the bolt. Too good to be true isn't it? But wait - it gets better... there was a notice of public space available for quilting get togethers!
Pinch me. Did I die and go to quilters' heaven? Must have. Here's what I bought there: some fat quarters on a bolt of muslin.
I'm so excited to get modern fabrics in my favorite colors!! Here's some more arrangements. These are Canadian fat quarters - so it's several inches bigger (1/4 meter instead of a 1/4 yard).
I know exactly what I'm going to do with them too! And I can hardly wait. I got more browns and antique yellows to go with the pretty gardening fabric I bought at guild night. I'm even going to try incorporating grey into a quilt.
And even splurged and bought a template. Imagine that. They are so inexpensive, but I always think, "I can make these myself". Truth is, I never get around to it. Too busy blogging. haha
The only thing I regretted was not bringing a camera with me. Periwinkle Quilting is so darn pretty inside!! (Love the opened back space!)
Now for more planning and dreaming while I wash up all this fabric. In the mean time, CALL ME or email me or leave a post below if you are interested in a quilting bee / mom's night out / teaching & sharing evenings. Apparently the new space has Friday nights available in the Saskatoon / Broadway area for a $5 drop in fee. : )
