    My sweet hubby took me to a great quilt store while we were on vacation in NH. He let me wander around for a couple of hours...while patiently waiting to go to the racetrack. :)

    I think I walked in a stood there with my mouth open for a full five minutes. :shock: We don't have many fabric stores around here and none near as big as this one.

    Here's what I got from Keepsake Quilting:

    a baby charm pack, girly flannels and some random fat quarters that they had hanging tantilizingly all over the store

    Hubby requested some coasters out the teddy bear fabric. :)

    I'm drooling. I get their catalog. I can't tell you how jealous I am. I think I'll just go check out their website since that's the closest I am getting.

    Last but not least, I got some beautiful autumn prints. I didn't have a project in mind when I picked them out. I'd like to make a wall hanging and maybe some placemats if there's enough fabric. If anyone has any patterns or suggestions, I'm open. :)

    Oh, one other question: I usually prewash fabric, but do you prewash 5" charm squares???

    I'm completely jealous! Those are great fabrics! And no, I wouldn't pre-wash a 5'' square...you'll get nothing but strings...

    Wow--You got to go to Keepsake Quilting!! I am in awe!! How fun for you. I can understand why you were just standing there with your mouth hanging open!!

    Your fabrics are all great--but I am just curious about all the baby fabrics--are you trying to tell us something???

    I WOULD wash the squares especially if they are darker colors. Just hand wash them in the sink and lay them out to dry. Better safe than sorry. I was very sorry when I first started quilting , didn't wash some dark green fabric, put it in a wallhanging for daughter and the dark green color bled into the surrounding cream fabric. I was so sick about it!!!

    Haha no, I don't have any fun news like that. I'm just trying to build up my stash for gifts and for the future. Hubby picked out several of the boy flannels, so I think I'll keep those for myself. :)
