Just got home from a week down in Winnipeg for the boys Spring Break. I made it to the Quilt Show on the Sunday and saw some beautiful quilts but I forgot to bring my camera! But what I can show you is all my fabric shopping as the vendors were great! I was in desperate need of some fabric shopping therapy as I spent most of my week at the dentist office, had three appointments to get a crown put on and a cleaning. My cheek is pretty sore and bruised inside so I’ve enjoyed looking at my fabric and dreaming about what I can make with them.
Hamel’s had a booth at the show and that is where I got most of my batiks. They had a sale $4.99 for half a meter so I stocked up there and they also had batik bundles at a great price too. My main focus was on collecting purples and pinks as I don’t have many in my stash and then I found these gorgeous greens and rust prints too!
We also took a trip down to Morden and Winkler this week and I got a great deal on these two batiks at Quilters Den….they were in the clearance section at 50% off but I bought what was left on the bolt ( about 4m each) and got 60% off!!
Then we hit Road 17 N in Winkler and I had a great visit with the owner Shari! She has a lovely shop with modern fabrics. This is where our Lug Nuts quilt is hanging as we bought the Little Black Dress II fabrics from her and she has kits made up if your interested.
I splurged on two fat quarter collections at her shop, Sphere and Wishes!
Our guilds Quilt Show is getting near and I have 4 guild quilt to work on this week so I’ll be posting something quilty soon!
