I went to Patched Works Quilt Shop today and this is what jumped in my hands and begged to come home with me.
How could I refuse?! All but the violets were from the 20% off sale section!
The violets, ice cream and fortune cookies will be gifted to my bee friends when I visit next month (Shhh! JoAnne and Maureen...no spilling the beans! :) ) The bicycles will be for the back of Uncle M.'s Bicycle T Shirt quilt (construction hopefully will begin in January of '09). The maroons I just started collecting for a quilt for DH (his college colors are maroon and gold) and the charm pack is for The Box that I'm filling of stuff...both quilting and non-quilting. The Box is an idea from a fellow quilt friend/member that has a friend in a guild that her guild did this...find The Box and one person fills it with stuff (quilting and other things quilters might like), anyone in the guild can put her/his name in a drawing, the winner gets what is inside The Box. Next month, the previous month's winner will fill The Box and a new name gets drawn! I thought it sounded like fun so I thought I would buy The Box and fill it the first month. Hopefully, the guild members will like this little 'extra'
The bad...16 yards! 1 for DH's quilt, 6 for Uncle M.'s backing and 9 for the bee gifts plus the charm pack! I better get busy again in the sewing room :)
