I bought the end of the bolt, almost 4 yards, of this Judie Rothermel fabric at The Old Country Store. They also do online sales. I may use it as a wide sashing for these blocks. I started these blocks out of my precut strips with the thought of a quilt for my new grand niece, Abby. I've kind of changed my mind about that, thinking I'd rather use brighter fabrics and maybe a Jacobs Ladder block. I was influenced by the quilt I saw in the antique store I shared a couple of posts back.
I'm enjoying the hunt for fabric I can fussy cut for these hexagons. The three top fabrics are the same design from Barbara Brackman's Metropolitan Fair. I just love these little florals and I absolutely adore the green colorway.
These two fabrics were from Zook's. No designer and less than $6 a yard. I thought they would be great in scrap quilts.
It's always hard not to pick up at least one "just because" fabric. For some reason I always need reds.
And as you see I also hit the Paper Pieces booth at the show. They were very helpful.
It was a fun filled day. It felt good to crawl into bed last night. The weather predicted for tomorrow is cold and rainy. Sounds like a good day to stitch in celebration of National Quilting Day. Yes, to my non-quilting friends who read my blog, the quilting powers that be say it is so.
; c ) Happy National Quilting Day!
