My field trip yesterday was fun. We went to Log Cabin Yardage. Nicole had previously only sold her fabrics online and at quilt shows but has recently opened a store front operation.
And then there was this toile that I couldn't resist!
Take an up close look at the images! I love them! Wouldn't they be great fussy cut and surrounded by hexagons?
We need a better word than stash. Stash sounds like a small pile whereas my collection is more like a mountain. How about moustash - I've got a moustash of fabric but I could always use a little more fabric! How big is your moustash?
Hope you've had a chance to take a look at the Show and Tell quilts at Quilting Gallery! Take a look at "Some Folks Resting" by NinaMe of the Russian Federation. It is VERY interesting! The quilt I entered is called "A Challenging Year". Here are a few close-ups of the details.

The cherry tree in summer - yummo!

And now it is time for me to get back to work on the tote bag for my swap partner. I've appliqued some butterflies and need to add a grasshopper.

Tomorrow I hope to show you some pictures of Mom's latest African themed quilts with the embellishments. Until I post again, happy sewing!
