More Quilty Vacation Pix

I wanted to show some of the fabric I brought home from vacation. It is always fun to go to new shops that you have never been to and see some of the new lines out for fall. One of the shops we stopped out had the "Gobble Gobble" line by Moda but had no fat quarters cut. They were so kind to cut them for me of the whole line. I love the fall fabrics!

Another shop we stopped at had some great civil war fabrics and so I had to get some yardage of them. A couple of these will be great backgrounds and of course a few FQ's jumped into my bag to come home with me too.

I always like some fun quilt kits and I thought these would be great to have.

This last pix is some of the applique I am doing on a quilt that was a block swap with quilty friends back in 2002. This is one of my "must get done" quilts. I am enjoying adding the flowers and leaves, love the 30's repo fabrics. They are just so fun and cheery. This is taking alot of time but that's ok. It will be so worth it when it is all done

Like a lot of people I'm a sucker for civil war fabrics...and Moda has never made an ugly fabric so I usually end up getting whatever my pocketbook will stand. You made some great choices! blessings, marlene
