I have been in a bit of a blue funk for the last couple of days, but I'm ok. I made myself quilt a block on the wedding quilt last evening. So this is number 26 out of 42 done.
Yesterday at lunch I walked across the steet (a very bust 4 lanes!) to a antique/junk shop to look at a quilt that they have had hanging outside. Here is what the place looks like from across the street. I can't believe I got this shot without a car in it.
Here is what they had on display:
one made with a variety of fabrics - I think it was marked $40.00
This funky top that I love - $45.00
This one I like very much also. Looks like large scraps just sewn together - $75.00
I went inside to see what else they had and there was this top - $35.00. Hand pieced and nicely made. I really, really liked this, but I didn't buy it for me. This top and the other funky top are finding a new home in NYC. These quilts looked like someone whose blog I read and get inspired from. I emailed her just to show her these two tops and I said that they reminded me of her. Now she wants to buy them. I ran back over to the shop, bought them, and they are going in the mail this morning to their new home. I can't wait to see how she finishes them!
This shop also had lots and lots of linens. Here is one section and they had two more sections packed with linens.
I could have spent hours digging thru this shop!
I may have quilting company tomorrow. I have not heard back from them so I am not sure at this point. I will be spending as much time as I can on the wedding quilt. I would like to get it done and move on to the next project. Have a great weekend!
