More Shop Hop Treasures

Here are the fabrics I picked up to complete the Nine Patch and Hour Glass Quilt I've been working on using my Civil War Reproduction fabrics. The dark blue is for the small borders and the greens are for the applique leaves.

Here is a picture of the quilt to refresh your memory.

I also picked up a walking foot. Now I can learn to do some machine quilting....maybe. I have Dear MIL's placemats all completed and I decided to machine quilt them, since I know she'll be using them and washing them lots.

I also picked up my favorite hand quilting needles and some machine needles. Then, when I spotted this magazine I had to grab it. I saw a quilt that several bloggers were making using a pattern from this magazine and wanted to order it. I was having trouble getting my order in, so I was grateful when I spotted the mag for sell at the Quilt Shop Hop! Yeah me! Someday, when I start this quilt, I'll show you, 'til then, we'll all have to wait and see. I may do it in my old age!

I also picked up these three fabrics, just because I liked them. From left to right: I really thought that the Wuthering Heights fabric (by Three Sisters for Moda) would make a great focus fabric for a table runner. The brown fabric is Benartex Jacobean Joyeux/Provence. I bought it because I love brown and nice browns can be hard to find. The last one, on the right, is the Shangri la fabric from the last post.

And lastly, here are three fat quarters I found and just had to take home. They were on the sale table for just $1.25. See, I have learned to buy tone on tones, and they will look great in my scrap quilts someday!

Other than a couple of things I picked up for my 100th post giveaway, that's it! My giveaway is just around the corner, so keep popping in for the chance to enter!!!

The Quilt Shop Hop was a fun little "mini vacation". I'll definitely be signing up for the Shop Hop next year too!

Happy Quilting!

Shop hops are so much fun! Love all of your new fabrics.

My Mom made this nine patch quilt for me but she used plain muslin blocks in place of the hourglass blocks. I love it!
