To kind of go along with using the stash, Stephanie had a great idea to have 'Fabric Friday' to LOOK at the stash. This found stack fits in with that perfectly.
A quilter nearby decided to destash her, as well as inherited (from and Aunt and Mom), quilting cottons. I was hoping to luck upon a hidden mine of feedsack prints....but alas it was mostly floral and novelty prints. Although, all very nice quilt shop quality - 10 huge bins worth! This pretty little pile of fat quarters is hand dyed cotton by Cherrywood. And a real deal at $5 for all three yards. They should fit in nicely with all the Kona that has been added recently :)
It was fun to chat with her while I dug through the bins. Wish I had thought to take a picture of the quilt hanging in the dining room. It was the one thing she asked for from her Aunt's estate - beautifully pieced and had wonderful, dense hand quilting. The pattern was quite modern looking but was obviously made long ago.
I have a tutorial/activity to teach at the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild meeting on Sunday, AND that day is my blogiversary. So I'm off to gather supplies and find a fun giveaway for you all!
