Worldwide Quilting Day

Today is Worldwide Quilting Day or maybe it is Worldwide Quilting Weekend!

DH and I went for a short road trip to Ann Arbor and went to two quilt shops.

Pink Castle Fabrics where I purchased some half yards of fabric.
While I didn't find the exact fabric that Kris at krislovesfabric used for her applique background for the quilt Green Tea and Sweet Beans, I found some fun fabrics.  I had to get the two strawberry/cherry fabrics they are sew cute and they were 25% off today they are Japanese prints. I also luv the newsprint fabrics which I found. 

We then went to Ann Arbor Sewing Center.  There I bought some Isacord thread,  some Aurifil thread for quilting, an echo quilting foot for my machine, a couple fat quarters and a new jack the ripper.  When I told DH that a girl could not have to many seam rippers he just rolled his eyes at me. Things that make DH Crazy!
 We then returned home and loaded my Lazy Sunday quilt on the frame. 
I wound some bobbins set my machine and I am ready to get my sewjo on! 

What kind of fun are you having?

love those berry and text fabrics. I am on the look out all the time for text fabrics because they are so much fun to use for backgrounds.Looks like the snow is melting.
