Playing Catch Up

A few of you asked what I purchased on my LA shopping trip. Some patterns I had my eye on and so had to snap those up. The Eiffel Tower quilt pattern was an impulse buy, since I had just vacationed in Paris last spring, I have to make that quilt....very soon I hope.
I was looking for Halloween fabrics and bought a few pieces. Mostly I wanted reproduction fabrics as our local shops don't carry much if any of these type of fabrics.
Look what found it's way to my mail box....oops I just realized I forgot to include the sweet label that came with the scissor fob. Darlene (Quilting Daze) is a very thoughtful friend and thinks of all the details, do you see the charm that says "made for you", I put this fob on my stork scissors I bought in Portugal. I also noticed the flower is very similar to the Portuguese flowers I have in my garden. Thanks Darlene, I will think of you when I reach for my scissors.
I've had fall decorating on my mind lately. I bought this little kit last year and didn't get to making it, so I wanted to make sure I had this finished this in plenty of time to enjoy the season. I love fall and all it's colours. More fall decorating to come.

Happy Quilting.

Ugh!! your purchases are wonderful! I love the basket stitcheries! And your fabrics are to die for. The red one under the pad of paper is one of my all time favorite pieces of fabric. I never want to use it because I love it so much!

What a fun shopping excursion. Love the "Paris" pattern. I had a whole room in my shoppe called 'the Paris Room' and it was everyone's favorite. It was thus named for my own pattern(Meet Me In Paris) that I created way before I was ever in the quilting business....and had no idea that this one pattern was going to make my business.
Can't wait to see the quilt when you get it done!

The Eiffel Tower quilt is an unusual piece and perfect since you traveled there not too long ago.
The basket pattern is what interests me the most. That and the stack of fabric. Good purchases.
