Last Sunday was my birthday so I got a few quilty items as gifts and did a little shopping for myself too.
I was visiting my sister and we were wondering around the cute little town of Leesburg when I saw a bunch of Aurifil in a store window and had to check it out. It was the cutest little fabric shop called Finch Sewing Center. The shop had quilting fabric (along with a bunch of linens and apparel fabric), and each bolt was amazing. The store had Cotton & Steel which I must admit I was not enamored with from pictures but in person it was pretty swoon-worthy. I had to have a ton of restraint to not buy some of every bolt. I also made some BD purchases from Fabric.com and Green Fairy Quilts.
Cotton & Steel from Finch and Fabric.com
Into the Woods from Green Fairy Quilts
Various prints including essex linen and some text prints from Finch and Fabric.com
I also got a new quilt book from my parents. At first read it looks like it has a great collection of information and exercises. I will do an in depth review once I have had a chance to try some of the exercises and quilts in the book.
I also got one other thing for my quilting room from my DH, a new chair! I have been using a wooden kitchen chair with a pillow on it (two pillows on it while free motion quilting) so this chair has been a great improvement. (I was going to try to take a picture of it in my sewing room but it was just too messy)
Happy Stashing! I'm linking up with Sunday Stash with Molli Sparkles.
