New Fabric

We're out at the cabin this week with Mr Mouse's family.  I had to leave my sewing machine at home  :(  Today my mother in law had to go into Salmon Arm to get her hair done and asked if I wanted to go for a ride.  I quickly agreed after hearing there was a quilt shop just a block from the salon.  It was a really sweet little store with tons of fabrics, albeit a little pricy.  I figured I shouldn't spend too too much there, so I did a loop of the store first just looking at all the pretty fabrics.  Then I decided what to buy and went around gathering my goodies.  When I was leaving the store I noticed Fabricland was across the street.  Normally I try to avoid Fabricland if at all possible, but I thought I'd give this one a try.  I was pleasantly surprised!  The staff was friendly and helpful and the store was neat and tidy.

I have always wanted to try making a Dresden quilt, but have been intimidated by printing and cutting out the templates.  Check out what I found:

A Dresdan template ruler!  I can't wait to give this baby a try!!

Patterns were on sale at Fabricland, so I flipped through the Simplicity book and picked one I liked, as well as fabric that was $3.50/meter!!

Here's all the fabric I bought all laid out:

I can't wait to get home and start using it all!!
