Week before last I found myself with a car on a day Oscar and I are normally stranded at home. So instead of going to the grocery store or the playland Oscar insisted we head out to Lisle, IL to check out a new (to us) quilting shop. Good boy! The store is Pieceful Heart and I loved it! My new favorite. Everyone was so nice and they carried so many beautiful things… Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, and many others. A bunch of the things I have on my eQuilter wishlist were there and I got to drool over them live and in person. I have no fabric budget left whatsoever but I couldn’t help myself. Just a few fat quarters to tide me over.
In other quliting news… I finished basting my Plain Spoken quilt at my parents’ house this weekend. Now I just need to finish some of the other projects I have piling up (I’m always saying this!) and then I can start quilting it. I can’t wait to have it finished and have no quilts in progress…so I can start another one of course.
And check out this great racetrack quilt Kerrie made for her son!
