Yesterday I visited one of my favorite local quilt shops, Seminole Sampler, which is located in Catonsville, MD. I needed some Jo Morton fabric for a Friendship Block Swap that I signed up for and found this wonderful fabric she designed for Andover Fabrics. I thought the name was on the selvage but it's not and I don't remember what was on the bolt.It is in the center background. Then I saw that Monopoly fabric and just had to have some as I am collecting fabrics to make a quilt about me. A friend of mine made one a few years ago and I loved it. She had all these rectangles of things that meant something to her such as the game fabric because she liked to play games, she had a car fabric that featured her first car, etc. And her last rectangle was a fabric with pink dots on it as she worked on this quilt while she had the chicken pox!!! It was so cute! So it inspired me to start collecting fabrics for my quilt.
Now, why, you are saying to yourself, has Dawn posted a picture of her dishes drying and what in the world are those shiny things? Well, my poor husband asked the same thing! I saw Sue Hausman make little simple purses using the Capri Sun packages so I decided to see if I can make a few for some of my grand daughters. They have been saving their empty packets for me and it was time to wash and dry them. So you never know what you will find when living with a sewer!
