I'm in an online group called the Sunshine Quilt Guild that makes donation quilts for children worldwide. I had the great pleasure today to meet a fellow quilter from that group. *B*, from Sunshine, spends part of each year in Michigan and part in Florida. We were able to get together in Dunedin, a cute little Scottish village near Clearwater, FL for lunch and a bit of quilt-shopping! Since quilt shops can be dangerous places for voracious quilters like *B* and I, I went to the shop with a list. I bought just enough to fill in where I needed just a little bit to complete several planned quilts or quilts in the works. *B* bought a similar amount so we did our part to help the economy. This is what I bought:
The purple batik almost hidden on the left will be sashing for batik squares I have from a block-swap. The orange print will be a backing for an already-completed top. The blues are for another block swap due soon. And the print with the cats hidden in the tulips will be for a new design that I wanted to try. It was gorgeous weather today and we had a good time. Now I have to get quilting!
