Party over here!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to swing by a cute little shop that I don't get to visit too often. Luckily I happened to be in the area taking my kids to their cousin's birthday party so I decided to stop in JUST SEW for a little party of my own.

The girls there are so cute and helpful. I'm not in there a whole lot so I wasn't sure if they would know who I was. But they figured it out soon enough. We had some good chats about quilting and patterns. One of the girls there has started designing patterns too (so help me! I can't remember her name- OR- the pattern name!) and they are sooo cute!! One of them caught my eye right as I walked in and I couldn't help but think "Why didn't I think of that!?" That's what I always think when I see a quilt that I love :)

Picked up a few goodies while I was there.....

'Domestic Diva' for Riley Blake with a few additional fabrics added in (some from Breakfast at Tiffany's by Joanna that I got at market!)

This next bundle has a story:

When the girls at the store and I got to talking about who I was (in all my celebrity-dom!) a customer heard and walked over to me. She showed me the pattern in her hand that she was going to purchase and it was 'Flora and Fauna'. She told me she was making it for her Mother/Grandma because she liked butterflies. We chatted fabric choices for a minute and I went back to have my 'Domestic Diva' cut. Minutes later she walked to the cutting table with a stack of bolts.....

I absolutely fell in love with her choices. Most of them were from 'Meadowsweet' 2 by Sandi Henderson with a few 'Fandango' by Kate Spain mixed in. I just had to have it too! When I got home I added a few from my stash including a couple from 'Hunky Dory' by Chez Moi, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' as well as a piece from 'Hoot' by Momo. This quilt is going to be SO CUTE!!! I'm stepping out of the box and using a tip I learned from Quilt Dad on this quilt and can't wait to show it off!!!!
So, all this fabric when I was trying to thin my stash. You're probably thinking "What is her deal!?" Well it was justified. Everyone deserves a little something on their birthday, right?
Yes, today is my birthday. And it's fabulous because I have BRAND NEW fabric to sew!!! Wahoo!
