When I went on my birthday shopping trip, finding some fabrics for this quilt was on my list. The shop (Boersma's) is located about a mile from my house. The local quilt shop (LQS) in McMinnville, OR gives their customers a 25% discount on regular priced items for their birthday, so last week I went there for my shopping trip. I had 2 punch cards filled up which gave me a $25 credit for each card - in other words, $50 off my bill! So here are the fabrics that I bought.
First, I bought 3 navy blue fabrics (which will be used for the eagles on the table topper). I already have a good blue for one eagle and each eagle will be different. The color didn't come out very good but they are all a nice navy.
Actually, when I picked out the background fabric for "Liberty" I picked out the one below that is cream colored. I didn't notice at first that the fabric is also by Kim Diehl! And since the same fabric came in red also, I got some of that too.
I needed a couple light blues and a good Christmas background fabric.
For my birthday, we went out to eat with DS, DGS and DGD, then came to the house for cake. I might as well tell you how old I am - 77! How did that happen?
Now everything back to normal and I have started on my "Liberty" table topper.
Hope you are all well. Thanks for visiting!
