More scottie fabric at JoAnn Fabrics

Two great cotton fabrics - found in the novelty prints section at JoAnn's
Waffle-weave knit fabric -- on sale 40% off!!
Flannel prints from Debbie Mumm -- in with the "Snuggle Flannel" fabrics
Flannel print that is the same design as the fleece and also the cotton print!
Two more flannels found in the "Snuggle Flannel" section.

Quilt Expo purchases

This neat doggie fabric is from Timeless Treasures -- notice that it has black and brown scotties!
I have recently gotten hooked on fabrics with metallic highlights -- I got these fat quarters to make another quilt -- also the 5 inch charm pack of coffee themed fabrics is called Bistro by Moda - the snowman fat quarter was a door prize on the bus, it is called S'mores.
I also got some nice thread from Superior Threads to use for maching quilting, and I ordered the stitch regulator and frame upgrades for my Weekender quilting machine and Hinterberg frame. Hopefully, it won't take long for the SR to arrive - I am anxious to get it installed and get quilting!

Chicago Quilt Expo

This friday Common Threads Quilt guild is sending a bus to the Greater Chicago Quilt Exposition being held in Schaumburg IL. I am planning on buying a stitch regulator for my Weekender short arm quilting machine. I have a quilt all ready to go on the frame, but wanted to wait until I could get the stitch regulator to quilt it. You can see more info on the show at

More Halloween fun

Ashlee's son Michael wasn't scared of my ugly witch face at all -- and he really liked the fake nose!!
