Saturday Adventure

Last Saturday was a snowy adventure!

I had previously agreed to help my mom with some filing that she was behind on at work in exchange for fabric and a trip to My Girlfriend's Quilt Shoppe, which is an hour from where my mom works and two hours from where I live (more on the shop on Thursday!).  While there was a TON of work to do at my mom's office, it was alllllll worth it when we got to the quilt shop!

When we walked in, I saw the sample and pattern for Cluck, Cluck, Sew's quilt Pow Wow.  Now, I've been eyeing this pattern for a little while, so I knew I wanted to make it!  Then I spotted Pat Bravo's Rock N' Romance collection... and I put them together!  I am making the twin size for our spare bed and the pattern calls for 17 quarter yard cuts, so I almost bought the whole collection :]

Instead of doing a white or light color for the background, I saw Art Gallery's Pure Elements in Cabernet close by and I didn't want to look any further.

This quilt is going to be super dreamy.  Have you ever felt Art Gallery's cotton?  It's incredibly soft.  I couldn't believe it!  I've never bought any Art Gallery fabric before, but now I'm hooked and in love!

I am SO excited to start on this super beautiful quilt.  This made all the hard work so, so worth it.  :]  Thanks Mom!

Also, since I am so terrible at this 30 days of thankfulness thing, I think I owe you at least six:

  • Hot cocoa when it snows
  • Online tutorials 
  • a Mom that loves fabric like I do
  • Family pictures
  • Spotify (this got me through all the hours of quilting my dad's quilt!  More on that tomorrow!)
  • FaceTime (I love seeing family that is far away...)

I hope you have a great Tuesday!
