Well, my title about sums up my day so far. I started out this morning running to JoAnn's. I went by the quilt store first, intending to get a jelly roll for this quilt but when I got there I suddenly couldn't remember if I needed a honey bun or a jelly roll. This store doesn't sell the magazine the pattern will be in (Quick Quilts) so I ran to JoAnn's to get what I needed and check the shelves. They don't have any. So I try Target and Meijer since they're across the street for JoAnn's. Mejier carries it, but still had the June/July on the shelf and the pattern's in the August/September issue. I'll just have to wait until it's on the shelf :-(.
So I headed home, but my car detoured me back to the quilt store for visit #2 to pick up some blues for the snowman quilt I'm going to make at Quilt Camp. The sample uses a variety of fabrics, but I'm going to do mine in blues & whites, so I need to stock up.
I came home and decided to see if I can get a second quilt made to go along with Dillon's Critters. I pulled out my leftover 4.5" squares from this and another baby quilt, also a disappearing 9-patch. I decided I didn't want to do the D9P this time, so it will be a surprise what I'm making. To get it finished this weekend I needed backing and realized I didn't have any creamy/white that would work, so back to the store I went for trip #3.
I told one of the owner's (Cora) about making the quilts for Dillon and about the auction. Guess what??? She donated three pillowcases for me to send. I'll be including them in the package I mail out on Monday.
So if you're ever in the Lexington area, go to Q First In Quilting on Old Harrodsburg Rd. The ladies that own it are super sweet. Even though it's been months (I think beginning of Feb) since I've been in there, they remembered me :). I can't praise them enough. The store is spacious and well-lit. You'll love it, I promise!
