I finally made a trip to Cyndi’s (Busy Thimble Quilt Shop) over the weekend. I used to go once a month, but this winter has been crazy!
Somehow, I managed to fit 36 half yard cuts into my car! I bought the entire line of Di Ford’s Maling Road. I absolutely love it. (And, yes, those are my 5" strips in the background. I cut a 5" strip off every piece of new fabric and place it in a box with over 5,000 of its closest friends.)
Look at this one.
One thing (and there are many) I love about Cyndi is that she never asks me “what are you going to do with it?” She knows (like herself) I am a hopeless fabric
I promised myself when I left the driveway that I would NOT buy a book. The moment I walked in the door Cyndi handed me this treasure (a gift from her!).
Then, I spotted thisBetsy Chutchian book and I really didn’t want my other new book to be lonely in the car so…. I caved. I love every quilt in here. It is not inexpensive as it is published by Quiltmania, but it was well worth it to me (especially since it will be the last book I buy this year – wink!).
I suggest you grab a cup of your favorite beverage and scroll through Cyndi’s blog (Busy Thimble). What a treat!
