LQS Closing

We're very sad to see a local quilt shop closing its doors this week. The owner is ready to retire and there is no one to take over the business. I wish I could buy it from her, but the timing is not right. We went down there this weekend to pick up a few things.

W couldn't pass up this lovely dahlia print by Martha Negley. It might become a new skirt for Julia. The other print is Piccadilly by Jennifer Sampou. We had a bit of it and used it up. It blends well with so many modern prints.

This circle print caught our eye. And I'm trying to build my orange stash.

As I grabbed this bolt, I noticed "Hasbro" on the selvedge. It is from the Scrabble collection, even though the circles have nothing to do with the game. Hasbro is a Rhode Island-based company, so it is appropriate that the fabric was printed by Quilting Treasures, also from Rhode Island.

I decided today that I want to purchase all fuchsia and orange annuals for my planters. I think it will be bold and fun!

Have a sunny day!
