My BFF, Robin, and I did our first quilt store shopping this week. I know, I know Road to California is right around the corner. But, still it’s fun to hit up the few local brick and mortar stores we have left here. They seem to be disappearing so quickly to on-line shopping.

Each year we pick out a theme to shop for while visiting quilt stores. I’ve done Ethnics, Words, Tone on Tones, polka dots. This year I’ve decided on stripes.

Yes, I couldn’t resist a few Word fabrics. But, I’m on my way with stripes.

Sadly, not a lot of sewing got done last week; but, I did manage to work a little on my boy quilt.

I am still trying to decide on the setting,

I hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,

I can never have enough stripes. It sounds like a fun shopping day made even better with great company.

Ooh, stripes! Love them but have a hard time cutting straight. They do make lovely bindings on the bias, too. Enjoy your shopping excursions. My friend that I used to do that with has moved but my budget has improved as a result!

Nothing is more fun than shopping with your BFF......

I like that your interpretation of stripes is a wide one. Those bobbin clips look like a good thing; I haven't seen them around here yet, but they sure will come in handy keeping track of the right bobbin!
