We are now back from our two week stay in Winnipeg and during that time I discovered a quilt shop that I will definately be visiting again. In Morden, Manitoba there is a shop called The Quilter's Jewel and it is a real jewel. The layout and fabrics were beautiful and the staff so friendly. Here I found my fabric for my guilds next Mystery Quilt project, the batiks pictured above. That is a batik black, not a Kona black. I wanted the fabric to be the same so I splurged. I had no idea what color palette to use for this quilt so I was open to anything and since I rarely work with black this will be working out of my comfort zone which is a good thing.
I also had a few things I wanted to pick up for the guild for some projects we are working on. I missed our guild meeting this month because of this trip and the only orders I left to my VP was to not touch the Ice Cream Cone blocks....I was on a mission to find fabric to go with those blocks.
This is what I found and there is enough for 4 quilts plus backing...yes I found a great sale! :)
I also picked up this cute collections for another guild project and it will be for making baby quilts using the Disappearing Nine Patch pattern. Yes, another great sale!
Hope the guild members like the fabrics I found! If not I'll have no problem keeping it :)
