Kits, I love kits, always have. Everything you need right in the package to make the top. I loved these two, pretty traditional, so I brought them home.
The fabric on the right is from one of the several trips that we made to Hancock's. I love the back room where all the flat folds are kept and spent alot of time going through the stacks. I found a variety of fabrics and colors there and this was what I picked up. I did buy a few books this trip, one being "Nearly Insane". A group of us are going to be creating our own quilts with these blocks and will help encourage each other to finish them. I am still trying to decide what fabrics to do mine in.
This last picture is of a small little carrying case that will hold my hand piecing projects and gadgets. It is a small tapestry bag that reminded me of one that my Grandma used to have. Not pictured are 4 purse kits for family and friends that I found and a little pincushion kit that I want to make. All in all it was a wonderful trip, lots of laughter, great food, wonderful friends old and new, and of course great quilts!
