I SPY.....

Today, I decided to walk on down to my favorite city quilt shop around lunch time to get some more fabric to add to my winter quilt.  As I walked in, I spy'ed "a little collection"...I was wondering where she had been, because I had not seen, nor heard, nor read her (blog) for the majority of the summer.  Needless to say, it was a pleasant NYC Metro Mod I Spy a Member surprise.

So, of course what did that mean...we shopped and shopped and shopped...and their 20% of 1/2 a yard or more on a bolt sale did not hurt either...

So, I was able to pick up a number of items that I had been looking at over the past few months.  And for 20% off, who could complain.  Definately, not me.  A little collection was there to pick up some fabric for an I Spy quilt...hence the title of this post....smiles.

I am actually going to go back and pick up some Kona solids...I did buy a bunch some time ago to get my solid stash going.... but they are bundled so nicely at home...I should just get some to play with... smiles.  It is on sale, after all.

So here is a pic of some of the yummy goodies I picked up this afternoon. (Didn't bother taking a picture of the fabric I went in to buy...You will see that in the finished winter quilt.)   Oh, and some of the fabric is to create the back of the winter quilt...."spring quilt".  While in the store, I decided to make a reversible quilt...Winter and why not get some yummy fabric for Spring...a two fer...smiles.
