I have been very distracted by all things fabric this weekend. :)
I have decided on the color choice(s) for my Sunflower Wall Quilt with a little help from my friends. <3
I have looking at the wonderful display of fabric choices that my quilty friends have been making for their "Outside the Box" Mystery Quilt at the Quilt & Needle. There are special threads posted in the forum for those who have purchased this pattern. Many quilters just buy the pattern and use fabrics from their stash. The variety of choices is amazing, as will be their finished quilts. If you have never tried a mystery quilt and are feeling adventurous, please join us. The mystery continues. Jess, the designer, also hinted at the September and December Mystery Quilt themes and I am really looking forward to these designs, too. I have not started my July quilt, yet, as I have other projects ahead of this in my quilty queue. I bought a kit from Jess's shop that are beautiful soft greens, yellows, aquas and browns from Moda's "Origins" fabric line. I am loving these fabrics and can't wait to cut and sew. ;)
I did not make the long trip to the Maine Quilt Show in the rain ... which made me a little sad to miss all the beautiful quilts. :(
So I consoled myself with a little fabric therapy. I went to a one of my lovely nearby quilt shops. This shop has walls of colorific cotton fabrics, as well as a great selection of batiks, minkees, as well as more traditional designs and solids. Every time I go in there, the rainbow of fabric makes me happy. Really brightened a gray weekend.
They are also having a big moving sale in progress. Sale fabric are further reduced to just $3.99 per yard and there are also offers of 10% to 30% off other fabrics and an extra $10% if you finish the bolt.
My fabric haul is pictured above, Most of these fabulous fabrics were up for grabs in the $3.99 section and the most expensive was $5.99 at the 40% off offer by buying the end of bolt.
So if you are in the area, stop by Quilter's Way while it is still in West Concord and then visit their new location next month in Acton.
Think I will go fondle the fabric and then get to work on my quilt.
May all your rainy days be showered with fabric!
