great guild day

here i belong to 2 quilt guilds that have their meetings a day apart once monthly.   that means two days in a row every month are packed with quilty pals and fun.  this month they are both hosting fabric sales....always a challenge for the budget conscious!  nevertheless, at $1 per FQ and one lonely george washington left in my wallet, today caved for this pretty gold christmas print....see the cute reindeer?


it was a teensy, weensy slip with absolutely no guilt...showed it to another quilter who had purchased some snowmen fabric with a bit of gold, so she found another for her project.  it was perfect!   of course there is a free table, and in lieu of dragging home more magazines, opted to take a photo of a couple of things that caught my eye.   these were full size quilts, but thinking smaller versions for quick finishes to add to the "someday sell" pile, or just give away or even keep.  also scooped up some nice wooden spools for my jar.



isn't technology great sometimes?  much easier than more magazine clutter that would only have to be sent along someplace.   the top one uses that chrome-ish yellow for the alternating squares that really gives it a WOW.....and march arrived like a lamb altho a bit cooler than anticipated.  even so, certainly looking more and more like spring with blooming trees and flowers dotting the landscape everywhere.  i just can't believe we had a snow-less winter....bless you Mother Nature!

  1. That looks like a happy find for $1.
    I like both of the quilts in your photos.
    The 16-patch quilt is so simple, but I always love the boldness of the design it creates--especially in those rich colors.

  2. Lovely FQ, smart way to keep from the clutter I am currently struggling with, have been going through magazines and sharing with others, such a wonderful feeling when one can share with others. Mother Nature is reminding us that it isn't Spring yet, a cold snap has arrived for a short stay.
