Bus Trip–Buying Fabric YA!!!

It has been awhile since my last blog, but I think I am back on track.  As you know I am D.C. Federal Government worker, but I was not furloughed.  My Agency USAID was able to keep us working while other agencies were shut down.  Great for me, but I could have used a couple of pay days off.

Friday me and my girls went on a bus trip with the Milltown Quilters of  First Presbyterian Church of Howard County in Columbia, MD.  This is their Annual shopping trip to Sauders, Shady Maple and the Kitchen Kettle area.

Here are some of the ladies waiting for the bus.  They were even siting in the car.  Hi Terri, hope you found a lot of fabric.


We made it to Sauder and the ladies were buying up a storm.  There is Pat getting her purchases cut, and Linda of Eat, Sleep, Quilt standing in line with her arms full, and I even see Renee back there.

I have been waiting for this trip all year, and would you know it, I could not make up my mine on what fabrics I wanted to get.  I played it safe by only buying things I will be using to make bags and what caught my eye.


There was this city fabric and the music fabric and café fabric that I picket up.  I also picked up some yardage of Kona snow, black and gray for $5.99 a year, now that was a deal.

There is nothing like going on a fabric shopping spree to get your creative juices going.  Saturday (right after the bus trip) morning Linda and I went to the new JoAnn’s in Wheaton Maryland for their grand opening.


Yah, Linda was buying more fabric.  I needed some Red Skin fabric for pillows and found this nice look fabric for a bag.

Once I got home I got right into finishing/starting on some projects. 


Here is the T-Shirt quilt I have been working on.  I got it sandwich and squared up.  Just need to get the binding cut out and on.


I also got this baby quilt squared up and ready for a binding, that I have already to put on.



And this is the block I have been working on tonight for an exchange.  I only have to do six blocks that are due next Saturday, only have 5 more witches to cut out.

So, you are pretty much caught up on what I have been doing.  So I will be blogging with you soon.
