Yesterday was an amazing day spent with my amazing BFF, The Quilting Queen, Pauline (or QQ for short). I picked her up around 9am and we headed for an amazing place. A fabric warehouse in Ohio. Oh the trouble we get into there! It is about an hours drive for us and this is what awaited us...Fabric Heaven
Or you can see QQ showing her impression of Vanna White.
"Hey QQ whatcha' lookin' at over in that isle??"
I think it was a "put that camera away" moment!! LOLOL, you know me.
Shopping was almost complete and QQ asks me "here, you want some fabric??"
It was so much fun! Here we are with our final selections. First me with mine (some of my cart was for our friend who lets us use her access) and the other one is of QQ with her haul! We sure do heart our fabrics!!
Don't you just love QQ's expressions?? I think I bring out the best in her don't you?? I was thrilled to get some of Allison Smith's Peacock fabrics at a bargain!! I see a pastel peacock quilt in my future!!
We paid for our purchases and left to get some (late) lunch and then make the long drive home. Although, it never seems very long when the two of us are together, time really has a way of slipping by. I hope that is the case when we drive to PA in a few weeks too.
After we returned to QQ's house we settled up and then down into the basement we went. She taught me how to use our friend's GO that I had borrowed. I am making a tumbler quilt for my nephew and his new wife to celebrate their wedding. I got it over halfway cut out. Here you can see the fabrics I chose along with the stack on tumblers I got finished. I needed a plain green and QQ had some in her stash. I love shoppin' the stash!!!
I think this line is called Natural Effects. I really, really love it. I hope they will too. I had put ribs into the crock pot in the am before we left so went home to have ribs for my dinner.
I am looking forward to the weekend and seeing what new adventures pop up for me! Have an awesome weekend too!! XOP
