Weekend Quilty Fun

I have heard about a quilt shop in a small town not far away and decided to go and check it out. It is about an hour from home so a Saturday road trip was planned. Since my quilty neighbor had to work till noon I finished up this jewel of a quilt. Pretty isn't it? It is huge, and I know it will be stunning made up on a bed.

At noon I went and picked up my quilty friend and off we went to Rossville, which is about an hour south and east of where I live. I am sure you have heard Ruthie post about this shop on her blog and I agree, it is a great shop!

The ladies in the shop were so helpful and friendly! One of them was telling me about their embroidery classes they have. Well, I have a Bernina with the embroidery attachments that I have never used and so I may just have to take some classes and learn how.
They were just cutting this group of FQ and I absolutely love this group, Cotton Blossom I think the line is, and I love the group on the right but not sure what line it is. Love the colors.

My Grandson wants me to make his girlfriend a quilt for Christmas and so I will use the Cotton Blossom fabric and since I needed a pattern for it I decided the "Strip Delight" book would have what I needed.

My last and most important purchases were a couple of backings and bindings for 2 quilts that are just waiting to be finished. One is for a UFO that I have had for at least 5 years and so I hope to get it quilted this fall yet and the other for a Christmas present that I am currently working on. And the best part they were all on SALE!

If you are ever in the area be sure to stop and check it out. You will be glad you did. :D

Last but not least, I am still plugging away on the OTR quilt. I have over half of the pinwheels done so the end of those are in sight. I must say, pinwheels are not my favorite block to make. I just keep thinking about the finished quilt. I have seen such wonderful OTC's so far so I know it will all be worth it!
