Happy Birthday To Me (2 Weeks Early But Who's Counting)

I am SO grateful that I have my friend Janet's blog on my Google Reader. She posted about a quilt show this weekend, and I managed to make some time today to go.

And boy howdy am I ever glad that I did! Besides the many inspiring quilts - and there were many - I did fairly well in the fabric-acquisition department. Stashbusting? What stashbusting?

Check out these lovelies, all purchased at SUPER great prices. (Surely I'm not the only one who doesn't pay full price for anything at a quilt show?)

The two FQ bundles on the left will be for a quilt for ME ME ME - our bedroom is painted that blue, and there are cream and brown accents. It's Spa by Rosemary Lavin. Right off the top of my head, I'm thinking something like Ashley's Unfurnished/Stacked Seating pattern. Then there's the Kaffe bundle (LOVE HIM), and all those FQs in the front are just for stash except the Flights of Fancy which is destined for a New Wave quilt that I'll be starting shortly. 

The above bundle of deliciousness is a lot of Amy Butler plus a few other things. Love it - here they are all spread out:

Yummy! I consider it an early birthday present to myself.


  1. oooohhh looks like you did well!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Rosemarie Lavin's spa and used quite a large amount of it in my quilt for our bed. Beautiful colours!!

  2. Mmmm. Beautiful fabrics. I think we have similar tastes in fabric from the looks of it!

  3. aha, I see you hit Carola's!!She has the best show specials. I'm so sad I couldn't make the show - I did a retreat on Sat. and Sun. was just too crammed with family commitments to get our there. boohoo!

  4. such pretty fabrics! looks like it was a successful quilt show!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
