What's a quilter to do??

Do you know what a quilter does when she has several hours on her hands waiting for their son to take a tour of a college in our area. Why she goes to a quilt shop of course!

When you are within radar range, what better way to spend an hour (or two?) then to check out what's new?

I thought this pattern was very nicely done. Love the Tea theme.

They always have something new hanging in their class room. '

And YES I had to find some delicious fabrics to bring home.
I'm hoping these will make a good start for the Six Degrees pattern in Miss Rosie's book.

And today there was this sweet little package in my mail.

So neatly wrapped.

Kim from bitty bits & pieces sent this to me.

Isn't it adorable? And look at her card. She lists herself as a Quilter, Teacher and BLOGGER! Yeh buddy! Way to go Kim! And thanks so much for the sweet little crocheted pin. I am always so amazed at the incredible talent that is shared in blog land.

Wishing you a marvelously happy quilty day!

I also love the tea table runner! Wonder if the pattern is a one-off designed by the person who made it, or if she used a pattern in a book or kit?
