Last Wednesday I went out to QuiltPlay! It's a new quilt shop in Grayslake, IL. I really wish it was closer to me... but perhaps it's a good thing that it's an 80 mile round trip...

They had flannels on sale- aren't these awesome? The birds and the dotted ones are Valorie Wells, and the flowered one is a Robert Kaufman print.

Amy Schilme's Forest Friends! I think I am getting into an owl thing... there are so many cute owl fabrics coming out!

Some black and white I picked up, along with 2 orange batiks. I did not buy these intending to use them all together, but I have changed my mind since I took this photo! Don't they look stunning together?
Great book with a really nice technique for paper-piecing miniature quilts!
I also got to meet Susan ("chickenfoot")- she's the one coordinating Doll Quilt Swap 6!

  1. Great fabrics! The orange batik would work with the owls too. I have three fabric shops within 15 minute drive - temptation get thee behind me! I have just made a miniature quilt, 14 inches square. It wasn't paper-pieced and I nearly went mad trying to sew the tiny little pieces. It was fun though.

    Happy Stitching...Ann :)
