A fun shopping trip

On Wednesday evening, 7 of us went to Tillsonburg (ON, Canada) to visit Cynthia at Cherished Pieces. She has her quilt shop in the basement of her home and it's always a delight to go over there and browse (and buy :-)! I bought some awesome bright fabrics and a large bundle of 40 FQ's from Terry Thompson's Moda line of fabrics called "Louisa". I had picked out two bundles of four FQ's and then spotted the whole bundle...broke down and bought them all :-). Sometimes you just love a fabric enough to get them all. They will be great for table runners or even lap quilts! The three yard pieces at bottom left were from the sale bin and the centre three pieces were remnants. We also got a tin of Mary Engelbreidt safety pins and a package of quilting needles as a gift from Cynthia. Fun place and I got my fabric fix for a few weeks :-).

Here is a close up of the two bright fabrics...I also got a lime green to go with the animal print and a turquoise polka dot for the funky flowers. Now to dream about a project to make with these fabrics.
