Sunday Stash.

     Yesterday I was in my p.j.s until about 3:00pm.  This is because after I drank tea and read the papers I started quilting Leanne's table runner.  The day went like this:  quilt a bit...check emails...quilt a bit...do laundry...quilt a bit make lunch...quilt a bit.

     You might ask why I bothered to get dressed at 3:30pm but the thing is, it was such a nice day that I thought I should get out and enjoy it.  So I went for a walk which of course took me by my local quilt shop Greenwood Quiltery.  I was scoping out some fabric to use as a background for a quilt tutorial that Cynthia posted on her blog  Quilting is more fun than housework. I saw three possibilities .

     I didn't pick up anything this trip but I was there on Wednesday when I picked up these beauties.  (The quilt store is a 10 minute walk from my house.)


     These are the new Tula Pink mosaic fabrics and I love the gradation of colours in each fat quarter.  I also picked up this book by Gwen Marston.

 
     

     I'm on a bit of a Gwen Marston kick right now having just read my way through her book on Minimalism.  I've had a quick flip through this book and I've found my inspiration for using some of the bright solids I picked up in the spring.
I'm linking up with Sunday Stash on Molli's blog then I'm off to my sister in laws farm for Thanksgiving dinner.  Nothing says Thanksgiving more than a trip to the farm. Don't you think.

  4. The fabrics look lovely, especially hanging together.

    I don't know if you're lucky to have a fabric store so close or not. It's probably great for you but if I lived so close to one it could be my downfall. I know I probably wouldn't have any resolve at all!

  6. You have a quilt shop within 10 minutes of your house??! That would be soooo dangerous for me. Sounds like you have a wonderful day.

  7. Ahhh, you made me feel all misty for my grandma's (now my cousin's) farm, and Thanksgivings past...this one sure was a glorious day in the sun, wasn't it? Oooh, that'd be so dangerous for me as well, 10 minutes to a LQS...funny that you had to get outside and your legs took you there, and well, you had to go in...I have not seen those Tula fabrics, but I love a gradating fabric! I think I know the quilt you're talking about on Cindy's blog...I might have made it yesterday! Fall colours.

  8. I love those fabrics - am putting them on my wish list. i just discovered Gwen Marston after researching some quilters to show our patchwork society and love her stuff. I'm hoping to get Modern minalism in my next Amazon buy from the UK.

  9. With a quilt store just ten minutes around the corner from me that has that beautiful of fabrics, my day would look something like this: quilt a bit. go to the store. quilt a bit more. go to the store again. Such restrait to come with "only" three beauties.

    Greetings from Germany!

  10. Lunch on the farm sounds good any day, as does staying in your pjs until 3pm. I like those fabrics a lot (hadn't seen them before) and I love that book - it was the first thing I bought after I discovered the idea of liberated quiltling and it has definitely enriched my quiltmaking.
