Birthday Shopping Trip with Mom
I just got back from having lunch with my Mom and shopping with the gift card she gave me. This is what I got.....
I love the "cheater" cloth. It is so bright and springy and 110% girly. There is no mistaking this for a quilt belonging to one of the boys. I got two of the coordinates - the blue paisley for a border, and the red polka dot for a binding. (The line is Leila Rose by Alex Anderson for P&B Textiles)
The bunny fabric - I'm seeing Monty Python's killer bunnies here (not girly) - are for the back, because they made me laugh.
I also picked up a yard of backing for this....(it is the third cut of fabric I have purchased to back this....I think I have finally gotten it right this time.)
And set C of the Marti Michell templates. Would you believe I went to work on my Yester-Year UFO and discovered that I didn't have the templates to finish it?! They are half off at Quilt Country - if you are interested in obtaining them. They didn't have all of the sets, but they had A, B, C and a few of the later ones.
I kind of went over my $50 limit. But I had two $50 gifts to spend so I'm okay. (Like my dh would care.)
Oh...and check out this virtual cake I was sent.....
Cute isn't it!
