Shop Hop is over.


Friday I took an early lunch between meetings and scurried down to Painted Pony N Quilts. They had some great 30's mini quilts on display-you could vote for your favorite. I also bought two chances on the raffle quilt. I bought some forked pins here and more FQs: some 30's and some Civil War repros. I also won a drawing while there-two patterns for an airplane quilt.

After work I went down to Pinwheels and Posies. I bought some FQs here.

Then off to Cactus Quilts. I bought a book for my sister, Ladies Day out with the Bonnet Girls, that she liked when we visited earlier. More FQs here too.

When I got home my quilts had arrived from the quilters! I'll post some pics tomorrow.

Saturday DH let me sleep in-big mistake as the boyos had a 9:30 appt for pictures! My mom was not happy with me for missing. After coffee we went to Fabric Etc, I won two fat quarters! And I showed off the Duck Duck Goose quilt as I had bought the fabric there. Then we took the boyos for haircuts-the first one for Tig!

In the afternoon DH, Tig and I took the long drive out to Calico Cats. It took about an hour and a half to get there. Very nice folks and Lake Jackson is pretty cute. I bought a FQ of some valentine fabric to make a matching pillow for my valentine quilt and a red, white and blue panel. Then we had lunch at the Wurst Haus-very good German food. That was the end of my shop-hopping.

But wait! When I got home I got a call on my cell phone- I won a $25 gift certificate to Quilter's Cottage!

hey there,
you asked a couple of cutting questions on sew mama sew. i thought i'd try to answer them. in the tutorial i was cutting width of fabric strips. i do cut through the fold to square the fabric. i always check that first strip to make sure it's nice and straight...hope this helps. if not, just drop me an email!
