Michigan. October. Eighty degrees outside. Beautiful leaves to see. Motorcycle.
Sounds like a trip on the bike is in order!
The Woodworker suggested we take a ride to Lansing and stop at the quilt store and a gallery. Yes, you read that correctly… it was HIS idea! Totally! Now, I don’t know any quilter in her right mind who would turn down a trip like that, do you? So we took non-expressway roads through the country to East Lansing, home of Michigan State University. (My apologies to my fellow University of Michigan Alumni…) and we went to Country Stitches.
I wanted to pick up some additional cream/beige prints for the backgrounds of basket blocks that I started making a year or more ago. I ran out of them, and have been holding off until I could get some more. Every block has a different print fabric for the basket, and each background is different as well.
So this is what I bought today:
I was only going to buy neutrals, but I fell in love with both of these… The color above is more accurate than the photo below, but I love the print so wanted to share a close-up. Yummy!
Now I have no excuse for sewing more basket blocks!
