I have two modern baby quilts to make for the new year...my stash of Homespuns and Civil War fabrics just aren't going to cut it! :o)) I was thrilled when I saw these fabrics at Fabrications...check them out....
I don't know if I will use all of these prints in the baby quilts but at least I now have some fun options!
And at the 'Running Stitch' in Kanata I found these two books...
Kathy Schmitz's new book "Stitches From the Garden" which I have been lusting over!! SEW BEAUTIFUL!!
Want a peek inside?....Love this Autumn runner...wouldn't this border stitchery look wonderful stitched around the border of a Fall Quilt?!
...but I wonder how that will be for tracing and reversing the pattern? I'll let you know...
And Jen Kingwell's "Bring Me Flowers" quilt book! I love her quilts as they have a distinct vintage flavour to them...or am I slowing getting swayed to the 'modern side' of things...NAH!...I'm just messing with you...and ME! YIKES!:o}}
Love this quilt...It would definitely be a challenge to make...and it may take a few years...BUT each block would be a labour of love as each is different from the other...Yup, I REALLY like this quilt! I think I just talked myself into making this one!!
So that's it for the Loot...that was all that I could fit into my suitcase! That's the bummer part about flying! Next week we are off to Calgary to visit our eldest daughter and help her and her husband celebrate Thanksgiving...YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS...more quilt shops... and we are taking the car!!! Yeehaw!
It's Woolie Day today...but alas...our 'Five Bags Full' gang will be down to only only THREE BAGS this time. It's was a difficult month to get everyone together...we finally settled on one of the last days in September with only three bags in attendance! We decided that Three Bags Full was better than none! We have such fun with the name of our group! I am such a BAG...and proud of it!!
Have a thrilling Thursday and happy Stitching!~P
