Grand Forks Shopping
Yesterday my friend, Lori, and I went shopping in Grand Forks. The original idea was to go to Fargo but that city is all closed down due to flooding. As it was, we had to avoid the I29 interstate and take smaller highways due to water on the road.
Of course I had to head straight to Joanne Fabrics where I got the assortment of black and white fat quarters. I also got a few bag handles and magnetic snaps. I have been wanting the Jane Davilla book since I saw it on someone's blog. I love the way it is set up as lessons with homework. I'm going back to school! I hope to work through the entire book in the next few months.
After some other shopping we headed farther south to Mayville and Faye's Henhouse quilt shop, one of my all time favorites. My only problem there is that there are so many delicious fabrics and kits and quilt samples that I don't know what to buy. I ended up just getting the little package of spring like Moda fabrics. I did find a nice circle cutting ruler as well. Does anyone detect more black and white circle quilts in my near future?
