Fabric shopping on vacation

 What is a vacation without buying some fabric?  Why not even a vacation at all!

I used the Find a Quilt shop app on my husband's iPad to locate a great shop in Sioux Fall, North Dakota called Heirloom Creations.  I could have spent all day wandering around but when your husband is waiting in the car, you have to chose much more quickly.  I selected the grey and yellow for Emily's baby and the other one, well, just because I liked it!

I used the same app to find The Quilt Block in West Des Moines, Iowa.  Another great shop!  In all my travels I have only encountered one stinker of a quilt store and luckily it wasn't on this trip.

I loved the blue checks just because.   The other two are Kaffe Fassett who is one of my favorites.  The yellow is to mix in with my huge collection for the baby quilts. 

This past weekend I traveled to Washington D. C. for a birthday party of a dear friend who is a quilter.  So this time, it was reverse vacation shopping.  I got things here at my shop and brought them with me.  Fun!

I have been having such a great summer and one of these days, it will rain and I can stay in and sew!  In the meantime, I am having fun while the sun shines.

Sew happy!
