After a trek to pick up Dave's quilt at Country Roads Quilt Shop in Morgantown, WV, we traveled a few hours away to Parkersburg, WV to Bolts and Quarters Quilt Shop to check out a Handi Quilter event they were hosting. And to my EXTREME delight, Beth agreed to meet up with us! I feel pretty confident in saying Beth and I probably talk via email at least once a week if not more. She has been a great friend and sounding board when I'm stuck on a project. So to actually meet up with her in person was a dream. You might think, was it awkward? Not at all. It felt like what it was, two friends meeting up (ok, three if you include Dave). Not strangers. And the best thing of all...we could talk quilting as much as we wanted and enjoy every minuet of it. Did you notice two of the quilts hanging in the background? It's Beth's Oomph!
While visiting the quilt store, I may have made a few purchases. While I waited on Beth to arrive, I gave a large wall of fat quarters a good go over and picked out a few pretties to come home with me.
I just couldn't say no, to these pretty flowers.
After a conversation with Beth about quilting rulers, I decided to pick up a pack of adhesive grip strips for the backs of my rulers. I seeing a lot more ruler quilting my future.
What's really funny, is before the trip ever started, a box of fabric landed in the car. As we were leaving our house, the mail carrier pulled in delivering a big ol' box from Craftsy. During last weekend's Christmas in July sale, I picked up a few goodies. For myself (and Dave) I ordered a Cotton & Steel FQ Box. It's so pretty, I'm not sure how I'm going to cut into it...but I'll manage somehow.
The box also contained a few more jelly rolls and charms, but I will let Dave tell you all about those, when he's ready.
And now, I will leave you with one more picture. Probably the prettiest one taken this weekend. I can't really say anything more right now. All I will say is, isn't it pretty?
Also, If you have time, stop back in the next day or two and check out the next round in the Mini Round Robin going on right now with myself, Sandra at mmm!quilts, Julie at Pink Doxies and Cindy at Stitchin At Home.
Today I'm linking up with Main Crush Monday and Sunday Stash.
