There was a point Friday morning that my SIL and I found ourselves alone. What to do, what to do? Well, run to JP Knit and Stitch, obviously!
I went a little haywire. Want to see what returned to Ireland with me? I'm a little embarrassed to show you all of this, but I keep telling myself it's OK since I haven't bought fabric in 3 months time. That's what I'm telling myself anyway....
Right. I needed more decaying leaf green and stinky brown to finish off my blocks for the Sew Bee Blessed quilt. I think I'll call this quilt Electronica, but I'm still mulling that over. Anyway, I bought a bit of Kona Kelly and Sable to finish off those blocks. Boring, but necessary.
Then my attention turned to the lovely selection of prints. I just need stash building beauties in aqua, purple and yellow. These fit the bill! Here we have (from left to right) Tufted Tweets by Laurie Wisbrun, So St Croix by Jennifer Paganelli, Hopscotch by Daniel Walker Studios, and finally another Tufted Tweets by Laurie Wisbrun. They make me so happy!
I picked up 5 prints of Echo to compliment the six I have in my stash. There's more than enough here to plan a project using these prints. I just have to decide if I want to use them all together or just smatter them into "scrappy" quilts. It's something nice to daydream about, anyway.
Finally, there were pre-cuts. These are incredibly hard to come by in Ireland. I splashed out on Pezzy Print to stock up on blending charm squares. These are great for "scrappy" quilts. I also bought A Stitch in Color to use with the jelly roll scraps Di sent over as part of Mouthy Stitches. I have a quilt in mind for the jelly roll-charm pack combo that will be started this summer. Yum!
Finally, you'll notice a little charm pack of Walk in the Woods. If you know me at all, I'm not a big Walk in the Woods or Pips fan. Now, I think that might be because I had never seen them in person. Boy, these are indeed cute up close! I might be a convert....
Anyway, I return home to a package from Emily of the Strawberry Patch! Emily organized a rainbow charm square swap. I jumped in as quickly as possible...actually jumped in twice. I gave in a purple and a red print, and received in return two charm packs-worth of rainbow happy goodness.
Yum. Well, clearly I have to stop typing as quickly as possible and get to sewing! Hope you guys had a great weekend too :)
