Shopping and Sewing on the Bus

There is always something happening on a bus trip with quilters.  We have an ugly fabric exchange, fabric lotto, and mileage lotto.  There are always magazines being passed around to look at, and there is usually a movie going.  So there is never a lack of anything to do.  I took some of my six pointed stars along and finished sewing these five on the bus trip.  I also did a simple applique' block that I'll show you with the rest of the blocks for that quilt.  

Here are my vendor purchases.  The four solids on the left are going into a project that I'm working on along with Michelle from English Paper Piecing Addiction group.  The reds and cheddars are for another quilt.  The fat quarter of hexagon shaped fabric is for 3/4" hexagons for another project.  One booth had some remnants bundled, and I wanted to see what the floral looked like unrolled.  The only way was to bring it home.  It is 9" X width of fabric.  Not sure what I'll do with it.  

It was a tiring day.  After finding a comfortable chair to rest for awhile, I decided that I probably needed a pack of Cherrywood fabrics to take home with me.  I'd scoped out their booth and liked both of these bundles.  I couldn't decide which to buy, and after all time was running out.  So I just bought both of them.  

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

Thanks for stopping by!
