WIP Wednesday October 23

I have a new WIP to share with you.  First a close up (before serious ironing):
I had a lot of fun this weekend playing with fabrics and triangles.  This will be a wall hanging for my sewing room:
 (Have I mentioned how much I dislike the basting stage?)  I am quilting this now and will have a finish with all the details to share soon.

Meanwhile, I have some eye candy for you!  You see I have been (finally) making a dent in my fabric stash and my birthday is getting closer and the Red Sox are in the World Series and I haven't purchased any fabric in a long time....oh heck, I just had some fun fabric shopping!!  It turns out my wonderful mother-in-law lives near the Marden's in South Portland, Maine.  How did it take me so long to find their fabric department??
 Gorgeous fabric that reminded us of French Impressionist painting.
 Lovely low volume Christmas letters.
These colors were completely missing from my stash...can you imagine that?!
 I still have not had enough of aqua, red, green combinations.
And really aren't those purses so cute?  The prices at Marden's are amazing.  On average these fabrics were $4.99 a  Lucky me I have a legit reason to visit South Portland, Maine on a regular basis (wink, wink!).

Linking up with Lee's Freshly Pieced Wednesday party:
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Hope you are having a wonderful week!


  1. I love Marden's too! Alice told us at the meeting that the Sanford store just received a huge shipment of modern fabric from a defunct online retailer - I am trying to get up there and take a peek!

  2. You DID have a great little shopping spree! I love the purses. Your quilt is beautiful, can't wait to see the finished story. Love it all.

  3. Cute quilt and great shopping too... enjoy!

  4. Hey there Kathy! Love all your tasty treats here:) Your quilt is so amazing, I just love the layout!!! What a fun lesson in what triangles can do.

  5. Ohhhhhh, to have fabric that well priced here in Australia!

  6. I really love your sampler quilt. And I HATE basting as well. It is so not fun.


How nice of you to take the time to comment!
