The first shop I went to was Creekside Quilting in Clive, Iowa. I found some great bright, fun prints. I already have a pattern picked out for that Kate Spain Layer Cake.
The Quilt Block in West Des Moines, Iowa. I found some fun black and white, gray, and orange fabrics.
Adel Quilting and Dry Goods in Adel, Iowa was the 3rd stop of the day. They had a lot of cool black and white prints. I have been collecting them for a while now to make a quilt. But, I haven't decided yet on a focal color to use. Any suggestions?
Quilter's Cupboard in Ankeny, Iowa. They had some great bright floral prints. I had to really control myself here! I of course had to pick up a couple purple fabrics. Ahem-I have a little thing for purple...
Quilting Connection in Ames, Iowa. I finally found some eagle fabric for the back of little guys Brown Bear quilt. Yeah, I know those have nothing to do with each other, but he LOVES eagles! I had to pick up the Robert Kaufman Veranda Ten Square. Those fabrics were just so yummy. They also have some yardage that I might have to go back for when I figure out what I want to do with it.
Now I better finish cutting out the quilt for my dad. Me and my small group, Seams Sew Easy, have a challenge due at our meeting on Thursday. The challenge is to do a quilt or project from a book or magazine pattern that we have been wanting to do for awhile. I picked the fabrics and pattern out for this project almost a year ago, so it definitely qualifies. I'll already have one Christmas present done!
