Well, I’m back from my trip to Pennsylvania and Lancaster County. What a trip. I absolutely loved the two days spent among the Amish. I learned so much about these interesting people. Not at all how they are portrayed in the movie Witness.
But most interesting of course were the quilt and fabric shops. I took so many pictures and have so many ideas for quilts I now want to make. Not to mention, I brought home 65 (yes SIXTY FIVE) yard of fabric. I was shocked when I added it all up. But the prices were just so great. At least 30% less than any of the fabric shops here in the Bay Area.
Here’re some pics of my purchases.
These are fabrics from the Simplicity line by 3 Sisters for Moda. Perfect for a baby quilt I need to make for my friend’s new granddaughter who arrives on June 30th. I think I’ll use the Sassy Sixteen pattern by my online quilting friend Kimberly Camou.
And, these are some fabrics that just reached out to me begging to come home with me. I couldn’t resist.
The last bit are the final fabrics I need to make my Granddaughter’s princess quilt for her Birthday in September. I think I’ll use the Sassy Sixteen pattern for this one too.
Now all I have to do is figure out where I’m going to put all this fabric.
