Somehow this post was overlooked and not published in June! It was written…the fabric pictures were added…it was ready when I was checking the draft file to work on my next post. Ooooops!
Let’s do some time travel!
Flashing lights! Time travel noises! zurp…zurp…clang More flashing lights! woop…woop…clunk….sssss of steam!
On Wednesday, we had more shops to hop to in Virginia.
Fabric stop #3
Shop #3 was Bella Fabrics. The block is a combination of paper pieced and applique. Somehow the fabric was not photographed, a link was overlooked, etc. I will add more about this shop when I post about the finished row in my reveal page.
Fabric stop #4
Shop #4 that I found was the Fabric Hut in Norfolk, Virginia. Wow! They had a great selection of upholstery fabrics, quilt fabrics, buttons, accuquilt cutters and die cut plates (or whatever they are called). Their row is called “Mermaid Block”.
Here is the kit:
I can’t wait to work on this beautiful block!
I also found these colorful panels on the clearance rack:
My goal is to get the cat panel made into a quilt for my friend Lisa. She collects all things cat.
Fabric stop #5
DH found this fabric on sale while I was standing at the cutting counter. It will be great for the row by row experience.
This fabric, which is covered with postage stamps, will be great for the United State panel that I bought in Colorado at Thanksgiving.
I am slowly collecting Americana fabrics to make a quilt for my DH, who is a social studies teacher.
Next we stopped into Hancock fabric! I had a 20% of your purchase over $50. I bought all kinds of goodies. The girl at the cutting counter asked what kind of quilt I was working on. The lady behind me complemented me on how well I had coordinated the fabrics. Stash doesn’t need to be coordinated. I must have been in a mostly green mood.
Fabric stop #6…which is shop #5 in the row by row
Shop#5 was missing….it was not at the address that was listed in the row by row experience. I e-mailed them to let them know that they had an old address listed. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to drive back there to shop. I will find the last four somewhere in the U.S. or Canada.
The hunt will continue another day!
