A week ago I visited JEllen's House of Fabric because I won a door prize at her grand opening!! Of course I had to check out the fabric and decided to purchase some more Fall fabric to use with my leftover Moda Gobble Gobble. I purchased the below Moda Saltbox Harvest fabric in addition to a couple scarlet and gray fabrics for my stash!!
Harvest Market is a pattern by Robin Betterley. I used EQ7 to audition the fabrics.
Robin designed a fabric line for South Sea Imports called Quilting Companions that I love.
Two weeks ago I visted Cottonpickers Quilt Shop, as I was looking around I realized that I have never made a Fall quilt. You know in browns, greens, oranges, deep reds. So when I spotted Moda's Gobble Gobble I decided it was time. I purchase the below fabrics and came home to design my quilt using EQ7.
I added one fabric from Moda's Northwood Botanical.
Beth only had one yard of the large flower print, so I came home to find a quilt pattern. I found Flower Patch in Cindy Casciato's Block Explosion. I used EQ7 to audition the location of the fabrics and finally decided on the one below. Check out my finished quilt top!
Last week I visited Mara's Fabric and Gifts check our her new website. I really enjoy visiting with Mara and her husband. I showed them the Ohio State quilt that I'm finishing the binding on and my Stars and Stripes Allover quilt. I spotted this fabric by Sandy Irish for Blank Quilting, I'm not sure what I will do with it yet, but Black and White can be added to a number of colors. Especially Scarlet and Gray!!
I visited Beth at Cottonpickers Quilt Shop to show her my Gobble Gobble and Market Harvest Quilts. While there I spotted Berkshire by Blue Hill Fabrics it has turquoise in it, which is supposedly the 'it' color this year! I haven't decided what to do with it yet.
I have been so busy piecing and shopping and cheering for my favorite football team the Ohio State Buckeyes that I haven't made any time to update my Blog. So today you will be updated on the last couple weeks of my life!!
The Buckeyes have started the 2010 season with 2 wins!! Their first win was against Marshall University 45 - 7 on Thursday, September 2. Jim and I visited my Aunt Winnie and my father Denny to watch the game. Their second win was against University of Miami 36-24 on Saturday, September 11. We don't have cable so we watched it on ESPN3.com. This win was very important as the Buckeyes attempt to reach the BCS National Championship. There were a few issues with the kick return team that I'm sure Coach Tressel will modify this week.
