HEY! THIS IS OUR 100th POST!
Feeling lonesome for you both today (now yesterday.) I went on a fabric shop hop and really wished I had some company. The good news is, shop hops are awesome! Great deals and free prizes.
This is what I bought. Two quilt patterns, some yardage to make a pillow from a dresden plate I pieced from yellow vintage sheets, some random cuts that were too good of deals to pass up, and a noteworthy charm pack that was 40% off. I think I paid $2 for the turquoise hounds tooth and it's 3/4 of a yard. That was probably my best deal of the day.
Jenn, isn't this the prettiest color of purple?
Here's what I got for free: a book that shows all the quilt stores in the US, a pattern, A swatch buddies ring, a measuring tape, a cute wax bee thread conditioner, a fat eighth, a whole stack of free block patterns, and eight 6.5" squares. The shop in Gardner Village always has a scrap basket with these 6-7" squares for 25 cents. Whitney picked some out last time because she wants to sew a little quilt together. I got these to add to her pile, but when I went to the register the lady asked if I brought any little girls with me. Apparently they were giving two away to each little girl. She gave them all to me for free since I had four little girls at home. Wasn't that sweet?
At each shop you can enter to win extra prizes and $50-$100 gift certificates. Fingers crossed! Apparently the hop in the fall is way bigger and better. They give away several sewing machines! Nice $1500 sewing machines. It's at the end of October. Don't you wanna join me?!?
