I guess I got the new patterns and notions out of my system as I only bought fabric on this trip. Not one pattern, spool of thread or needle. Patterns for tote bags and purses caught my eye, but I put them back on their pegs or in their baskets. I need to make some of the ones I recently bought before I buy another such pattern. I was able to visit three different quilt shops and enjoyed each one as you can tell.
I picked up one of my UFO's (unfinished objects for my non-quilting friends) and worked on it while on our trip. It is an apple core wall hanging. I forgot to measure the individual patch but it small! I am hand piecing this as the curve is not a gentle one that would easily be pieced on the machine. I am planning on making this little quilt have 12 rows of 10 patches each. I guess I have 9 more to go! I had only cut a few of the patches before my trip, and had a pile ready to be cut. I cut many of them while Hubby drove. I then was able to piece in the evenings and again on the way home. There are some things I can do in the car and not become carsick and sewing is one of them. Yeah! When there isn't beautiful scenery to look at along the way, sewing and listening to an audio book makes the time fly.
I will post a few photos of the trip soon! Now to catch up on all of the blogs that I have missed!
