the BEST fabric

I could use
about a bolt of each...
the fat quarter bundle
arrived earlier this week
...
Mom and I divided
each piece in half
and sat talking about
all our past shopping trips
for fabric

laughing until we cried
about the bad weather
we ignored
to get to the shops
an hour or more away

a foot of snow
and
all the schools closed?
no problem
predicted ice storms?
oh well
off we went
...
we're anxiously awaiting
our local quilt shop
receiving their order
because we might need
a yard or two
of a few of these

Hi Kelley- those fabrics are to die for! I wanted to ask you, what quilt shops do you shop at? I've been to a few up around the Hartville area, but that was years ago...I would love to see something besides what JoAnn carries...

My mom and I are rather fond of those fabrics too! I used some of the star print for airplane propellers on a quilt I made for my dad. Karmen
