Thursday, I stopped by Intown Quilters on the way home from work. Intown's style is mostly modern fabrics, Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, batiks, and a lot of fabric from Freespirit and Westminster companies. Intown was decked out like a coffee & tea shop.
I can never resist gray and purple fabrics and I found a couple of fat quarters and a cute-as-can-be pattern for an owl tea cozy.
I may have to make several owl tea cozies.
On Friday, I took a half-day off work and zoomed up to Little Quilts in Marietta. To get to the shop, you turn at the Big Chicken.
There is so much traffic in the metro area you can take photos from inside your vehicle. Not that I know first hand or anything...
Here is Little Quilts.
Little Quilts can be very dangerous on the pocketbook....
I always want one of everything when I go there....
The shop was decked out as a bee hive. With a super-cute display at the front door.
I found some Barbara Brackman Civil War Reunion fabric for my Civil War block of the week quilt. Red for the sashing and the purple-y fabric for ????? I don't know but I really needed some. I also picked up a few fat quarters to use in the quilt. Little Quilts has the most tempting little fat quarter bundles all tied with ribbon.
Next stop was Tiny Stitches in another part of Marietta. I really should have taken photos of the shop dressed up as a castle and the Queen herself holding court. Check out the photos on my friend Becky's blog (she has some great ones).
Oh good you are back. Tiny Stitches is a great shop to find any kind of fabric. They have LOTS! Whatever you are looking for, it is probably there. I bought some Lilac Hill fabric to go with the jelly roll I already have.
I had to hurry before traffic got
Sweet Home was decorated as a school house. Since I am there at least once a month if not every other week, it was challenging to find something that I needed. But look! I found a little bundle of purple wool. Isn't that handy? Goes perfect with Lilac Hill. Hmm. Needed that.
Saturday I stayed home and sewed sewed sewed on Eventide. I am ready to be done with this quilt!
