Road Trip: Shopping Day, Second Quilt Shop

The aunties after our purchases!
Quilts by Phyllis was another great shop!
It was very bright and full of many samples!
Lots of Moda love inside!

Squares from fabrics purchased from Phyllis,
completed on quilting day!
(I forgot to take pictures of the jelly rolls!)
Basically I fell in love with this line!
I can finally see the future of my home interior!

More squares and the border prints too!

Happy Hobbies!

Road Trip: Shopping Day, First Quilt Shop

The shop has a WONDERFUL selection of fabrics
and patterns, and occupies a generous space!

A table of jelly rolls....
Loads of fat quarters.

This is Michelle, the very kind owner of the shop!

We shopped around for a bit and then Michelle said we could go into the back room!

Back room?

This room is filled with fabric samples for purchase by the pound!

Yes I said, "BY THE POUND."
See those samples?
And these samples?
Many samples.
You can just browse around and pick what you want.
There was an abundance of batiks.
Look at all of that pink raspberry happiness!
I purchased this 3 pounds of samples.
I chose 10 sets of the above 8 fabrics.
For around $15 I have enough to make a quilt top!
Have any pattern ideas?
Happy Hobbies!

Road Trip

Valentine's Day weekend I headed to West Virginia
for a weekend with three of my aunties!
It was a lovely time!
Our weekend jaunt included some great meals,
fantastic shopping, quilting, knitting and even a horseback ride!
Stop back and I'll share the details during the next few days.
Happy Hobbies!
