A Fun Saturday




Yesterday I spent the day with Stephanie, Kathy and Nancy on a road trip to northern lower Michigan checking out some wonderful quilt shops. What a treat for me and I'm so glad they asked me to go along. Above are the purchases that I made - the single hole plate for my Bernina was something I had wanted for a long time and it does seem to make a big difference in free motion quilting. I have played around with it for a little while this morning. Check out the lovely Christmas fabric - such different colors and patterns. Yummy!!! And Gwen Marston's new book has wonderful applique patterns. Have never tried wool batting so picked up a small size package of that. Great purchases, I would say. Thank you, my friends!
