This and That

Good Monday morning my fine feathered friends, how are you all? Long weekend for many of you I'm sure, normal week for us here. Bret's getting ready for work and I'm getting ready to head over to Diana's to pick up a quilt she quilted for Alex. It's the red and white quilt I was working on a couple of weeks ago.
Last week some of you didn't get what I was talking about in this post. I thought my picture told the whole story, so I apologize for the confusion. I had the whole quilt finished and then discovered I had reversed positions of the blocks. Nothing cool about taking blocks out of the center of a finished quilt and repositioning them. But I sure learned my lesson about working on black at night.
We went on a field trip last week to The Quilter's Inn for some dots. Jane has a great shop there and it was crammed with fabric and people we love!!
Look at these sweet hearts and strawberries made by Kathy. Love how they look all piled up here in the little tub.
Here's my haul. I've been looking for dots on white or cream, and Jane has some coming, so I'll head back then. I still long for my yellow dot on white.. I know I'm not alone.
Ok, I better go finish up getting ready and hit the road. Happy happy my peeps!

I have to get that strawberry dot fabric. That is going to haunt me all day until I figure out where I can get some. And speaking of strawberries those she made are lovely.

How I'm going to come up with a comment that's not dripping with drool after seeing that strawberry fabric is beyond me. OH. MY. GAWD. I'm jumping in the car and heading south! I wish. Love all your haul... but that polka-berry is JUST TO MUCH!

I love the APQ cover quilt. Saw it and it screamed Darlene to me... and opening it up come to find out it's her daughter's. The apple doesn't fall far from that talented tree!

You're a woman after my own heart Pam! And that strawberry fabric is just adorable - I saw that somewhere in another colorway but I think I like this one better... :)

Dots on cream coming? Let us all know what you find so we can join in on the fabric find. I can't resist a good dot.
