    The fabric at the new place I'm using for quilting is $8-$9.60 a yard. :shock: BUT, there's a spot on the stairs that's $5 and if it's on the lower level it's $1 more off. So, one of these was $3.75 a yard. The one batch with the daisies is all Thimbleberries. The fat quarters were $1 each. I didn't think that was too bad. I'll also post the fabrics for the next quilt top I have planned--same pattern as Sunny Day and the Sunflower one that's at the quilter's now. I bought the light green there--not on sale, but I only bought 3/4 yard. I couldn't decide on the 5th color, and this green actually came with the big print! I didn't know it exists; seemed like a safe bet.

    It's getting nice and the mud is drying so much of my quilting time will be replaced with working horses and gardening soon.

    Here's the plan for the next top--might be awhile before it's finished. I'm sewing the bindings the last two now... almost done.

    It took a LONG time to decide on the 5 strip colors. :roll:

    Karla, if its possible, this quilt will be even prettier than the last sunny day quilt! I'm with you...the weather is telling me that the garden is calling. Its hard this year....if I go out, Howard wants to also and he doesn't need to right now. He thinks he can start the tiller for me... :evil: NO, NO, NO! (I've already sweet talked our yard guy into tilling for me..just to keep Howard out of trying to yank on that cord!!)

    Have fun with the new quilt..you'll be done with it before you start gardening...you are soooo speedy!

    tlrnhi--you always crack me up. On another post somewhere you said the poster was probably rolling around in her new fabric. I smile every time I go into my quilting room and just smell these pieces--and touch them. I haven't even washed them yet, and the fabric store smells wonderful-so, so do the fabrics. The Thimbleberries feels rougher than the fallish ones. Those ones are silky. Ahhhhhh.....

    So--I'm not sewing this week, but I am touching these ones a lot. :wink:

    No plans yet for the new ones--just the Sunny Day style for the last photo. I have 9--yes 9--small tops to finish. Plus I have to finish Kennedy's b-day wall hanging of the barn--and then I have to start my niece's wedding ragged flannel.....

    Karla ~ What gorgeous fabric! I live in Fayetteville, NY and noticed your location is the fingerlakes area of NY. So, where is this quilt store located? If it isn't too far from us, I have a couple of quilting girlfriends who love to take "road trips" just to check out different quilt stores, lunch, etc ...... a day can't get much better than that. In our area we have Calico Gals (Fayetteville), Mission Rose (No Syracuse) and Patchwork Place (Marcellus). Each store has its own personality, but they are all great stores.

    Donita--the new store is in Naples! That's about 25 min from me. I think you'd be about an hour or so away. :D When I do a quilt shop run, I love to go to 2 Mennonite shops, and another locally owned (but more expensive) shop. These stores are in Himrod, outside of Penn Yan, and outside of Stanely.

    That'd be fun to meet a forum person!!
