Here's what followed me home...
Some yummy flannels...yes, they were $4.99 a metre!
And the fabric that I have been lusting over, Lynette Jensen's 'Home Again'...all $4.99 a metre! (You may remember that I bought the flower print and the yellow print another time, for another project and I paid double this and thought I got a steal! Yes, I love this fabric!!)
WELL...I have owned this book for a long time... 'Material Obsession' by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke...*swoon*...LOVE this book!
A lot of the quilts have that vintage feel to them. I made the cover quilt as soon as I bought the book...but it was this hexagon quilt that I REALLY lusted over....but I had to find just the RIGHT floral print...well I think I have have a close match!
Here's the other full picture of the 'The Quilt'...
Here's the quilt picture with the fabric...a fairly close match...I might need a few more greens and neutrals which I hope to pull from my stash...
So yes, I was happy with my purchase...and even happier with the price! The only thing that put a damper on everything was that they over charged me by $30...again! They did that one other time that I bought something! Moral of the story...always check your receipts...before you leave the shop! They are great about 'refunding' the difference (they mail you a gift card in the amount). It's just that it's a hassle...you have to remember to take the gift card next time you frequent the store. I blame myself...but I was so delirious with the SCORE of the fabric, that I paid and never questioned the amount and danced out of the shop....so I kick myself! NEVER AGAIN!! I don't care how delirious I am!! haha
So that was my shopping excitement for Saturday...For all the local quilters 'out there', the sale continues on today! The tent is up and there are lots more SALES to be had! All fabric in the tent is 50% off but remember to go UPSTAIRS! That's where you will find the $4.99 fabric! The rest of the shop is 20% off...including BOOKS! Just remember to check your receipt before you dance out of the store...screaming "SCORE!!" :o))
Have a sunny Sunday and Happy Quilting...(I will be painting our new deck...ugh...but daydreaming quilts!)~P
