Week 43, 2009 Stash Report and a Road Trip

Fabric In: 42.125 yards
Fabric Out: 0 yards

Fabric in YTD: 173.125 yards
Fabric out YTD: -100.8 yards


Since I have been working/living in Louisiana I have wanted to find different shops along my travel route and stop in. This past week I had extra time on m return from Dallas and stopped at three shops.

I found PC Embroidery and Cottage Quilts in Shreveport. I was looking for an asian print to use as a background. I did find some pretty black asian prints and an apple print. I bought that because it has the apple from my home town of Cortland on it. Found a cute pattern to use some of the asian prints I am now over buying.

The next shop is The Fabric Shop in downtown Ruston. I got sucked into their half price table and found a great print that will be a backing to some quilt in the future. Found some cute cupcake , rooster and windvane fabric as well. Clover has a new tool out to make folded fabric roses. I bought one and will have to google for more directions. The directions included are pretty good but I think I need to see a demo at least once.

Finally I went to Hannah's Quilts in Choudrant, LA. It was pretty easy to get there with my Garmin but a little nerve wracking since it was pouring rain and there was standing water in surprising places. I was glad when I got back to the main roads. I bought a few asian prints while I was there. Shocking isn't it? She had some kits that were marked down. Bloomers by Anima's quilting. I looked but didn't buy, until Saturday that is. I drove back to Hannah's and bought both kits. One is for Mom. I also picked up two more blenders for a cheetah print blooming ninepatch I plan to make. Here is a pic of the backroad to Hannah's.

I will have to total up my purchases and put my totals in here later. But I did buy. Oh boy did I buy. Not like Judy though!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time going from quilt shop to quilt shop to find items that go well with your Asian fabrics.

Were they by any chance any of our Kona Bay Asian prints?

Of course, I hope they were:)
