…traveled to Bits ‘n Pieces Quilt Shop in Pelham, NH. This shop is located a stones throw from the Massachusetts border. It looks little from the outside, but has 7000+ bolts for fabric for sale. If it is your first time visiting, they give you a free fat quarter!
Why did I venture in? I’m planning a field trip for the Holliston Senior Center quilters on October 31st. This shop will be our main destination. I also taste tested food at a restaurant nearby. My job is so much fun!
I also attended a thank you luncheon at the Senior Center for all the people involved in running the various tables at the Harvest Fair in September 2014. It takes a lot of people to run such a successful fundraiser which provides classes and entertainment for seniors (55+).
My daughter traveled home from college for a quick weekend visit too! Her birthday and my husband’s birthday are a day apart so we celebrated both of them this weekend. Here’s a photo of Bethany opening her new quilt, “Wyoming Forest.”
It is fun to take my “Mango Mix” pattern and mix it up a bit to create a new quilt with appliques. I don’t even follow my own patterns! I used “Jungle Java” Tonga Treat and did not like the very light strips so I have saved those for another quilt. That’s why I changed the dimensions and left off the inner border this time. Even my own patterns are merely suggestions. I like to change things up every time I quilt.
Hope you had a great week too!
