Here's the report from PA.....the credit card is still intact, the bags made it in the house before any husband or child could ask "what's in those bags????" and made it home in time to go do set-up for the Blue and Gold dinner.
but the best part of the trip was getting to see my Quilt Branch friend Susan. We shopped, helped each other with fabric selections and I watched a master salesperson peddle her book (successfully!), followed by good food at the Franklin House. Go take a look at Susan and MaryJane's book, they've got a great concept----6 halves make a whole (six half yards make a whole quilt)----but don't even try to explain this concept to an engineer, they just will not get it!
Ok....so here's the fabric acquisition report.....
I've been wanting to reproduce a quilt from the great big The Ultimate Quilting Book but first wanted to find something suitable for the background, so I scored me some background yesterday...
and then I've heard from some learned people that you can never have enough repros....
and I have a really fun red and white project coming up, so I bought everything in sight of really red and white (very PamKittyish don't you think?)
so considering how many fabrics I touched in the 2 stores, I really behaved myself.....but in the back of my mind I'm thinking, "Lorre's coming soon and that will require another trip to Lancaster! behave, behave, behave!"
wasn't I a good girl?
Hugs and Stitches!
