Sandwich is done for Quilt #9


Yesterday was a beautiful day finally.  Sunny and low 60's.  My sis and I had planned a road trip to Shipshewanna for the flea market season opener.  We walked alot and enjoyed the weather.  The flea market was a bit to "fleay" for me.  Lots of the same things over and over.  Where do all these vendors buy a package of 10 toothbrushes they can sell for $1?

The we headed to town, had lunch and stopped in to Yoder's Department Store.  Let me tell you they have the best fabric selection.  They may be my new favorite place to shop for fabric, even though they are over an hour away.  I saw so many collections and precuts (which as a beginner I love). All the great collections I see on line they have.  Amazing

As a bonus, they have a great shoe department for casual shoes and I'm a casual girl (well getting to be old lady, but we settle for girl today).

My sister Patti, who isn't a quilter, has been watching me quilt on her new sewing machine she leaves at my house (what a great sister).  She bought some charm packs of Dot Dot Dash, a layer cake of For You and a layer cake of Nocturne with some backing fabric.

So today is a rainy cold day, all the better to start quilting Quilt #9.  Here is my sandwich for today:

So after I get my 10,000 steps in for today, then I can get on with quilting.  Here is to a great day.
