I had a bit of time on my hands after the bike exchange. You see, I had dropped Hubs off in Covington, GA to ride a century at 8:00am. It's billed as "The Fasted Century in the South" and it's a ride he has never participated in before. It was fast, he broke his 100 mile speed record and I only had 4.5 hours to complete my mission.
It would have been nice to take a leisurely stroll and hit all the ATL quilt shops but I had to choose one. The most convenient for the trip turned out to be Intown Quilters and I was very excited because it was on my short list.
I go to Atlanta quite often but since I started quilting a few years ago our visits always seem to be on a tight schedule and focused on a family event. This was the first opportunity for me to visit an Atlanta area quilt shop.
I chose well. The selection at Intown Quilters was fabulous and I got to see things in person that I have only previously stared at electronically. The service and people were great. Why can't we have a shop that stocks fabric like that in Augusta?!?
Here's what I purchased:
I added to my little Cotton and Steel collection.
This is my entire C&S collection and I feel like I can finally cut into it now.
Then I added half yard cuts of Kona Pool and Pickle to my stash. And last but not least, one FQ of Alison Glass Hand Crafted and a lone piece of Bridgetown by Violet Craft.
I also got Happy Mail last week like a lot of people. I got the silver and I am so happy with it. I have my design all set and all I need are the Cotton Couture Solids and I can get started on this baby.
Oh, and I picked up some swag at the bike ride too. Now I need a sticker for my sewing machine that says...
1/4 Inch Please...It's the Law!!!
Here's what I am finishing up today. Three of my personally designed Dish Drying Mats for the guild fundraiser at our quilt show in November. One is finished and the other two need binding.
Now I need to get back in my sewing room.
Thanks for visiting!
