Shopping Trip

I felt the call of Sweet Home earlier this week, and boy did I have fun. I had actually forgotten that Melissa was having a sale. I needed backing for two quilts and luckily the fabrics I selected were on sale. I got a red and white backing for the Firecrackers Quilt that still needs the final border. I had planned on finishing it this week, but the blue that I needed for the corners is still up at the cabin. Hopefully, I will get it soon and can get it finished. I also found a great tan fabric for a Stash Pot Pie pattern that I made last year. I am really excited about getting the stash pot pie pattern quilted, it is one that I plan on keeping. I haven't decided about the Firecracker quilt.
I also picked up three great books, Just Desserts, Simple Comforts, and the new Jelly Roll book. I have found several patterns in each book that I really want to do, but don't know when I will get around to working on them. I am also really excited about a pattern that I bought, it is from Cake Walk and features embroidery on some of the blocks. I also got a great pattern for a tote bag. It looks like I have more projects planned than I can possibly get done any time soon.

The books look wonderful. Kristi had the Just Desserts book. It has some great projects. I'm feeling the "call" to Sweet Home, too. Maybe later this week. Glad you found backings and on sale is the best.

Oh, that Layer Cake, Jelly Roll, and Charm quilt book is on my wish list! I've heard it's a good one!
