A trip to the quilt shop

On Saturday I met a friend at a local quilt shop where I had not been in ages. It is a little bit further than my normal stomping grounds, but always worth the trip!

One of my purposes for going was to purchase some bits of fabric to make a baby quilt. I had already purchased online the three fabrics you see below to the left. They came from a Robert Kaufman fabric line I loved. I am making a Simply Modern Baby Quilt using this pattern I bought online. She wrote a beautiful pattern! It was fun to choose fabrics and I am looking forward to starting!

Below are a few fat quarters I could not pass up. I have no idea what the first two are. I believe the second is a Kaffe Fasset and the last is my favorite fabric from the Lily Pond line. Love these! I am not sure if these will make it to my final batch of nine patches or not.

And one of my other big reasons for going was to raid their fun scrap bin. I got a half pound of scraps for $2.50. There were some good pieces and a lot of a couple of them. What fun!

Happy quilting!
