|My Beautiful Mom|
There are many quilt shops where mom lives and after a nice lunch we decided to visit a couple to see what mischief we could get into.
Our first stop was Material Girls Quilt Shoppe, one of my favorites and mom had never been there, so we had to go. Right away mom found a pattern for a fabric bucket that she liked and wants me to make for her. (She is perfectly capable of sewing it up and probably much better than I). But, I agreed to do it.

I made the mini bucket for practice and will make the large bucket soon for mom. She loves the color aqua, even more than I. The pattern is Bucket Brigade by Atkinson Designs and has 4 bucket sizes. I honestly have not ever purchased a pattern at a quilt shop and have been very surprised how nice these instructions are. The only patterns I have used are Simplicity, Vogue, or McCall's. What a nice change. A whole new world has opened up for me.
Mom was shopping for fabric for a table runner and when we went to the next shop, Picket Fence Quilt Company, not only did she find a lot of fat quarters, but she was able to purchase a very sweet runner already stitched up.
It's so much more fun shopping for fabric with someone, especially mom. We had fun shopping and giggling all day long. I found a few things to bring home with me.
I can't wait to use this black and white. It really messes with the eyes.
Happy Birthday, Mom. I love you!
If you've been following along, you know I don't have a computer right now and have been blogging with my tablet. I'm learning, but I cheated today and used hubby's lap top. That explains all the words tonight. This is so much easier for me..
