Quilt Trends

I drove my daughter to a job interview, which happens to be very close to Quilt Trends in Columbus. I hadn't been to the store, so I decided to stop in.  It is a cute little store. They had a variety of items, and a long arm which they rent.  I am still on a strict budget, particularly since I haven't finished organizing the studio yet.  They had a lot of quilts on display, and their Christmas display was especially striking, and I couldn't resist buying the pattern book so I could make a similar display for the holidays. I also bought a stiff brush to use with the fabric paint sticks I got as a gift.

And just to prove that progress is being made on the Lansing Leaves quilt, here are the pieces for the migrating geese border. I did have to add new fabric, but will also use as much of the original fabric as possible.

It's good to see you quilting again. I use my brush like that (it is a stencil brush btw) for applying starch to the edges of appliques. It works quite well for that too. said...

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I like getting nice comments from new people.....I'll be sure to stop back and visit yours again soon.
