A Visit to Quilter's Cupboard

My blog friend Kim suggested that since I was in Ankeny, that I check out this quilt store. So yesterday, we did just that. What a treat!! From the front, it looks so little, but once inside it goes on and on! Every room filled to the brim with so many great fabrics, and patterns for the best sewing projects.

I, or should I say Ken, bought me these two awesome fabrics, and a pattern for this really cute pin cushion weight with scrap bag attached. I can't wait to get the time to sew this, and I don't know what projects I'll use the fabric for, but they're great for my stash!! Thanks for the suggestion Kim, I'll be making another trip there before we leave!

Love your choices in fabric. Sounds like you are having a great time. I would love to see those bridges. Loved the movie and the book.
