I had a chance to get out of the heat for seven whole days…yay! It was wonderful to visit Mountain Green ( a very picturesque small town up Weber Canyon in Northern Utah) with family and also to have so many great quilt shops close by! Here is a little bit of what I was up to….
I basted hexagons…
I went to lunch and did some fabric shopping with family and friends (left to right Rae Ann, Susann, Nanette, me, my sister-in-law LeeAnne, and Lori)! We’re pictured here at Pine Needles but also shopped together at Material Girls! I was also able to visit Quilter’s Haven. with LeeAnne…another wonderful shop!
While at Material Girls I was able to pick up some of Monica’s new fabric, Holiday Happy!
I was really looking for Lecien Flower Sugar 2 and Lecien Color Basics…I found a great selection at both Material Girls and Pine Needles (thanks Lori for helping me find them all)! (I’d been wanting some of these fabrics ever since seeing them on Pam, Elizabeth, Monica, Lori, and Nanette’s blogs)! The Color Basics coordinate wonderfully with both Flower Sugar lines and also with Monica’s fabric.
Quilter’s Haven had more Lecien…I was able to pick up a few prints from earlier lines…so glad I stopped in! I might just have enough fat quarters now to start a new project.
This darling bee was a gift from Lori…love Miss Bee’s apron! Rae Ann gave everyone some cute thirties fat quarters along with a measuring tape and chocolate, and Nanette had wonderful squares of fabric from her Japanese and vintage stash all tied together with rick rack–thanks so much!
I couldn’t wait to look at Nanette’s fabric squares…project already in mind!
I had a little down time on this trip and also started a new quilt…pattern Rosettes by Joanna Figueroa…fabric Luna Notte and Martinique by Moda. I love the center star design with the “ribbons” around it…with these fabrics this will be a very soft, vintagey quilt. I finished one block…
and started block two! Planning on lots of sewing and quilting this week…after all…it’s way too hot to go outside! Have a great day!
