Troy in the Rose Room

I was in the Rose Room this evening taking pictures of a few new bolts of fabric and Troy was helping me. He wanted me to take a picture of him and Lightening McQueen. So here he is sitting among all the fabric on the floor. And he's smiling for a change, maybe we're past that stage of making crazy faces for the camera.

Friday Shopping and Sewing

Since today was my day off, I decided to take a trip down to my favorite local quilt shop, Quilter's Corner in Finleyville, PA. I picked up this pile of fabrics. I love the red and white dots, they are Chloe's Closet Redwork by Moda. I also really loved the little grey circles, a Riley Blake fabric. And of course I couldn't pass up the Aneela Hoey Little Apples prints (those little turtles are so cute).

I came home and did a little housework. Then went to my sewing room for about an hour before getting Troy off the bus and worked on quilting my Owls in Stars quilt. I finished this quilt top back in 2010, but had put it on the stack to be quilted. Last week I found this floral print and thought it would work well as the backing.

I might be able to finish quilting this one this weekend. Then I need to choose a binding, I'm thinking green or orange. Any suggestions?
