Doniene of Now It's Just Quilts
Congratulations, Doniene. Send me your mailing address and I’ll send those fabrics off to you sometime this week.
Last Thursday my husband and I drove down to Athens, Georgia for our daughter’s graphic design school exit show. We stopped at Mary Jo’s Cloth Store in Gastonia, North Carolina. I told my husband to go find something else to do for an hour and I had a fabulous time checking out their notions and reproduction fabrics. I over did it a bit with my purchases. Their prices and selection were wonderful. I paid $6.50-$7.50 a yard. Fabrics at my LQS are over $9. I was looking for reds and couldn’t resist these other fabrics. Designers include Jo Morton, Paula Barnes, Judie Rothermel, and Faye Burgos.
My husband drove the whole way down and I stitched spools. I more than doubled my number of blocks. Some of them are a bit puckered. His little Subaru Impreza doesn’t have the smoothest ride.
My husband took a lot of photos at the art show and I’ll share some in my next post. I was tickled by my daughter’s project. Stitching was involved!
