Beautiful Squares

A birthday gift for a dear friend who helped me through the darkest time of my life. He will get a bigger one in the near future!! I sure love these fabrics!!! All from charm squares. I found a new to me fabric store in a near by town. Ye Olde Schoolhouse is located about half an hour from me. 
Christine, from A Simple Quilter lives nearby and took me for the day. It was quite fun and John gave me some cash to spend....which I DID.
Enough fabric for a nice size quilt for our livingroom. I am excited to start it....AFTER the one in the hoop, and then Mason's quilt gets done. I am happy to get some quilting mojo back. I lost it for quite a while there. Hopefully, blogging will inspire me to pic up that needle more. There is also a Friday hand stitching group that meets at the quilt shop ALL DAY LONG....you can go for as long or as short a time as you wish. I plan to do some of those Fridays. Chatting with other quilters and hand quilting....what could be nicer?

  2. Cute little quilt shop! And I LOVE that you're quilting again!! I've got a little song echoing in my brain, sung to the tune of "My Boyfriend's Back"....."Her mojo's back, and there's gonna be some quilting, doo lang doo lang, her mojo's back!" I think I need more caffeine.

  3. Love those colors in the quilt. You lucky girl, having a nice quilt shop near by. I have not done much quilting since last August. Lot has gone on around here and I just have not been in the mood. I finally took my Double Delight (One of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts.) out of the hoop and put it up. I have been in a crocheting and knitting mood. Yes, I have taught myself how to knit through online videos. (grin) So proud of myself. Of course all I have knitted are dish cloths and scarves, but I am getting experience and loving it. Glad to see you back to quilting. Love you, dear friend!
