A New Start

When we got back from vacation I was ready to sew, so I decided to start a new quilt. Here's a glimpse of my Friday progress. It's going to be a fun baby quilt.

Vacation in Williamsburg, VA with some Quilt Shops

We just got home last night from our trip to Williamsburg, VA. My sister lives there so we were visiting and vacationing. We went to Busch Gardens and Water Country (felt the earth quake on Tuesday while at Water Country). We were also able to stop at 3 quilt shops on the trip. The first was Nancy's Calico Patch in Newport News, VA. I found the 3 fabrics above at that shop (the gray is Kona Ash). No pictures of the shop, we had my son Troy who is 5 and my niece Anna who is 4 with us. Hard to get pictures.

The second quilt shop was Love 2 Quilt in Williamsburg. It was located in the Village Shops close to Busch Gardens. I found some Amy Butler there that was 40-50% off. I also couldn't resist those Aunt Grace purple polka dots, so fun.

Our last stop was yesterday at Kelly Ann's Quilting in Warrenton, VA. We stopped there on our journey home. I found some great fabrics there (pictured below). It was a really nice shop, and we got to meet Kelly Ann while there. She recommended the Black Bear Bistro for lunch which was great. It was a nice stop on our way home.

And here is a picture of Anna and Troy. They were so excited to see each other they were like this the whole trip, very silly. (And don't you just love Troy's shirt, it's my favorite)

New Fabric in the Shop - Children at Play

I just got 4 new bolts of Children at Play today, they're listed in my Etsy shop. These fabrics are so cute, I love them. Check out Sarah Jane's shop on Etsy, she has some great children's prints available. I love her designs.
