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!!
Well, that was a successful little outing, wasn't it?ReplyDelete
