Of Course...


My skiing family members were not the only ones that got to have a little fun on our trip north. I had the chance to look up and visit a few local quilt shops while we were there. I had the pleasure of finding Adirondack Quilts. The shop was beautiful....i knew right away it was going to be good. They had beautiful antique and new quilts hanging all around the shop and a assortment of vintage and antique sewing tools.

I was more than thrilled to find that they had a whole 4 or 5 shelves of Aunt Grace fabrics. These are so hard to find here, and they are my favorites. I have been collecting them in little bits for several years now, waiting until i had a bunch to do a really awesome vinatge inspired quilt. I think i am getting close. Click on to see them better...they are amazing.

I also was able to get several yards of Amy Butler at half off. This was the first time i have bought anything of hers and it is so pretty. What have i been waiting for? I can not wait to try the Thangles....i also got a 6 square ruler...some Katie Jump Rope cloisonne and some Anna Griffin yardage that i had never seen before. All of this was my valentine present...some women get jewels, perfume or chocolate....this woman gets fabric. My husband knows me!!!!

Another shot....just because i love them and i could not resist!!

WOW! I love them all! Can't wait to see what you make! I got some of that hello betty a while ago and when I'm ready to make something fun for myself, I think that's what I'll use. I love the gray in it! Craig just asked me to make a quilt for the back of our couch here too. My list is getting longer! Thanks for answering my question. That's what I thought. I TOTALLY didn't direct that question at you to hint for you to go to Joanne's :) I checked here, and they're all $30 or more. I keep forgetting to check ebay. OK, I guess I'll stipple again :)

I love the fabrics you got! I have also been collecting for a while and have a little pile mixed with aunt grace, recess, sweet (urban chiks)and general 30's. I have enough now to start. Dana is doing a whirlygig quilt on the Old Red Barn Co site and am trying to decide whether to use it for that... What do you think?

Catherine said...

Love those Aunt Grace fabrics! I've got a stash of repro fabrics that I've been saving for a special project. I'm not sure yet what it will be, but it's fun to daydream about! :-)

I'm with you, girlfriend! In one of my past posts I said that fabric is like jewelry to me. For my birthday my husband gave me a gift certificate to an online fabric shop. Yes, I'm a fabric geek!! I just bought myself some Kaite Jump Rope...love it!!

I love these too as you can tell from my header. They are so much fun. One of these days a happy Dresden plate is in their future. My husband is just as smart! :)
