This is probably the last time you'll have to look at this one -- the Amish houses are done! They were nicely quilted by Joanne as part of her quilter's stimulus package and I finished up with a black & white dotted binding.
Here's a picture of the cool backing fabric that my friend Catherine gave me -- I supplemented it with some odds & ends...And I've been doing a little retail therapy! I'm pretty good about resisting most of the fabric store emails I get, but I was tempted by the recent Z&S sale -- it was 15% off their already reasonable prices. Isn't this a sweet presentation?
I succumbed to a handful of batiks (on the left) and a bunch of really nice textural prints. You'll notice that I bought two colors of a couple of the prints -- I end up doing that fairly often. The sale is still be on for a few more days, so venture over at your own peril!
Sunday I'm flying off for some more work stuff, to Orlando and then New York. I think I'll have an afternoon free, and I was excited to find that there will be two quilt exhibits at the American Folk Art Museum -- one is Paula Nadelstern's kaleidoscopes and the other is contemporary African American quilts. It's always fun to be able to sneak in some textile goodness in between the business meetings!
