A few weeks ago I heard about a new quilt shop opening that would be carrying mostly Moda fabric. So Tuesday I traveled to JEllen's House of Fabric. She has only been open a couple weeks, but I think I will be visiting her whenever I get the chance! The main reason I went was because she had her fabric on sale for $8 a yard and she had the Moda Let It Snow Batik fabric line that I needed. I will return because she has a beautiful shop, great product and best of all she is a BUCKEYE!!! As I do every shopping trip I picked up some more Scarlet and Gray fabric. She had the Moda Marbles that I use in my quilts. Another customer asked what I was going to do with the fabric and I told them about my quilts and my Blog. Turns out Joyce is an alumni and there were a couple of other ladies from Ohio State visiting. Check out Joyce's blog at JEllen's House of Fabric Blog where she talks about meeting me!
I picked up this pattern at Cottonpickers Quilt Shop and the Let It Snow Batik Snowflake Panel and Snowflake fabric for the borders. The pictures don't do this fabric justice. It's a really beautiful Dark Blue and with Gray accents.
Then when I visited Joyce I purchased the rest of what I needed for the quilt top.
Those 3 words describe our trip yesterday to Middle Bass Island and Put In Bay. But we had a great time catching up with our friends the Myerholtz family from California. Greg is a friend of my DH and was in our wedding 22 years ago. His wife Patrica and children Miranda, Amber and Josh were a lot of fun to see the island with. We were also joined by our nephew Ryan and his dad Clint. It was great hearing high school stories of things that Jim and Greg didn't really want the kids to hear!!
