I'm finally giving in, and joining everyone else in making their Modern Maples quilts. I especially love the ones with smaller leaves interspersed with the larger ones. I have quite a large stack here to work with... hopefully I can come up with something interesting!
As anyone knows who has been there, it is impossible to go to the International Quilt Festival and not do any shopping. What fun would that be?
I thought I did a good job of not buying too much. :) I'm REALLY excited about the mirror ball dots - these have been sold out for a while. The zombie fabric is my favorite. It's just too cute. And I picked up some Flatten starch alternative. Has anyone tried this out yet? It looked like it sprayed a lot more evenly than most I've used before, so I thought I'd give it a try.
I also won a door prize at the Houston Modern Quilt Guild get-together! Woohoo! I won these pretty fabrics and a gift certificate from Pink Chalk Fabrics. There were so many door prizes! Thanks to all the sponsors for donating to the event!
I've been doing a little stashing.
Some Geekly Chic that I missed out on a while ago. Apparently I hit the jackpot!
And some Ghastlies that I've been wanting for ages. I may have gotten Christmas Ghastlies instead of Halloween Ghastlies, but no matter. They're still awesome.
I mean, look at that kid. Haha! I'll have to add some bright colors to this pile, though - it's such a muted line!
