Oh my, where do I start? Of course, with fabric acquisitions!! Actually it started with attending my first New Hampshire Modern Quilt Guild meeting. Although it is a 1.5 hour drive from home to the meeting location, I intend to attend as many meetings as possible. As with my experience in the Boston Modern Quilt Guild, I was so impressed with the energy in the room, the talent evidenced in the show and tell and the warm reception I received as a newbie. It was wonderful to meet Chelsea of Patch the Giraffe (we've been following each others blog for some time). I even won one of the door prizes, a lovely bundle of Paperie fat quarters, a collection I have been admiring.
this post from Sew Mama Sew. At the meeting, someone shared a beautiful patchy quilt and I thought "gee, she looks familiar."
Yes, one and the same Michelle Cain of From Bolt and Beauty. Here is her blog post about that lovely quilt. The next day I got back into my little car and drove south again, this time to Massachusetts for a couple of appointments. Between appointments I stopped in at Quilters Way in Acton and who do you think I ran into there? Yes indeed, the lovely Michelle Cain. We had a long chat and I am sure it is a great omen of many wonderful quilting discussions in the future!
I even managed to buy some fabric! The next room in the lake house decorating plan is the family room downstairs. Hopefully a navy blue, aqua/teal, mustard color combination will add some life to this wonderful beige space!
And I won a fat quarter by finding the hidden fabric heart in one of the fabric bolts. At this point I should have run out to purchase a lottery ticket!
Meanwhile I continue to make progress on quilting the 2012 Craftsy quilt. I promise a full recap when completed.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
