Had a fun day visiting three local quilt shops. Probably took home more than I should have .... but most of my purchases were on my list. I have been looking for some nice cream/light fabric for stitcheries for quite a while and found these two at Cranberry Crafts in Ulverstone. The one on the left is called Heirloom Romance by Crabapple Hill Studio. They look much nicer than this photo shows. I'm finding it harder to take good photos as winter approaches - the light is definitely different to when I started blogging over summer.
Next are some red fabrics by Judie Rothermel. I found Spirit of the Season (left) at Cranberry Crafts and Rocky Mountain Quilts 2 (right) at Picture Patchwork in Latrobe. The reds are much deeper in real life.
I need them to back and bind this tablerunner - just a little peek.
And couldn't resist these two fat quarters - again by Judie Rothermel and from The Merrimack Collection. Divine.
While at Picture Patchwork, I signed up for a quilt-as-you-go log cabin class on July 5th. Have done log cabins before - there is a queen size foundation pieced log cabin flimsy in a box under my bed! - but never quilt-as-you-go. Sure it will be lots of fun. The sample on display in the shop is done in nice reproductions and shirtings ... Gorgeous. I have plenty of similar fabrics in my stash - can't wait to start. Hope you had time for some stitching today.
