We were heading up to Medina for my brother-in-law’s 34th. birthday party, and my nephew’s 1st. birthday party. So we decided to do a little quilt shopping before the festivities. It made for one VERY LONG day. (but it was fun too!)
We started with an hour and a half drive to Akron to visit A Piece In Time. We hadn’t been there in a few years …. and they had moved to a new location. We got a little lost – but eventually found them. I bought a few things – some really cool ORANGE wood buttons for a purse that I got the fabric for down in Columbus on Friday.
Some thread which *MAY* be used on a quilt for a relative of mine.
… and 3½ yards of pickle green fabric to use with one of my Civil War repro quilts.
… oh, and four fat quarters in Civil War repros …
From there we went to Fabric peddler in Wadsworth, Ohio – and I got a few cute things. I bought a snowman quilt kit, a magazine and three spools of wool thread. I have a few colors of it already – but decided to splurge and get olive green, orange and brown!
They don’t have a website – or I’d share it with you. After that we went to the Little Red Quilt House in Medina. I only had a very short amount of time to shop – so I picked up a new ruler, a magazine and a couple of yards of fabric. I will be heading back there – hopefully soon!
And while I’m here … I’ll mention my Pandora passion has continued … I took my white and green (for St. Patrick’s Day) off and used only the silver beads on my bracelet for Saturday. It looked really great!
Okay … enough of this … I’m off to the quilt room!
