Sweatshirt and stuff



It's me again, I forgot to tell everyone, I DID visit a couple quilt shops while in Vegas.The first one was really nice, large and roomy. The ladies there were friendly. There was several ladies there doing some knitting or crocheting, I really couldn't see them that well and didn't get too close, I wouldn't have known what they were doing anyway as I don't do either. I bought 1 piece, 3 yards of fabric for some blocks that I want to applique some designs on for a quilt for my GD. She will be 13 next March and I thought that would be a nice gift. That's the plan right now!!!!LOL I forgot to say the name of that shop was Nancy's Quilt Shop. The web site is www.nancysquiltshop.com. She does have a virtual tour. Check it out, I think you will enjoy seeing it and if you go to las Vegas make sure you stop in, it is definately a shop I would go back to.

The next shop was Fabric Botique, located at 4464 W. Charleston blvd. Also very nice shop and people. I purchased a couple quilt patterns for a later project. there was several shoppers there as well. They gave me a free quilt pattern. So now I have my work cut out for me, just finding the time to get it all done!!!!!!!!!!!!

The picture above is the top of the shirt I showed in my previous post. Nothing special, but am trying to get decent at applique, and taking an applique project in the truck isn't too much, so am planning to fix some designs to take along. I do manage to have a lot of stuff when I travel, I always take along Quilting Books. I like to look at them when we get settled for the night.

Hopefully all you ladies are quilting memories, catch you later. Have a good night. It's bedtime for me.

The chunky flowers are cool. The quilt shops sound just great, glad you got to visit those while you were on the road working.

Very good idea to try appliqué on a sweat-shirt and yours look good too! I wish you all the best for your next travel. For travelling, I find sewing over paper (english method) for Grandmother flower garden for example very handy, maybe another idea?! Take care.
