I am proud to say I went over to Country Threads last week and didn’t buy even one little piece of fabric…I know I had just been there in December but as much as I love Country Threads, I have never actually met the Mary and Connie in person. They invited me over for a visit and who could resist that…not me! We chatted and Mary took me out for lunch at a great little Mexican place in Garner. I had a great time.
While I was there, I snapped a few photo so I could show you…..Here’s Mary’s Four Patch.
Mary told me that they have made the shop model three times. The kit for the quilt keeps getting sold out and the fabric is then not available, so they end up making the shop sample again with a new line of fabric and kit it up all over again. I am amazed what a beauty of a quilt that little four patch can make.
Here’s a close up of the quilt hanging above the Four Patch Quilt. This one is a Primitive Gatherings pattern. The triangles are tiny. I’ve been working with small pieces and finding that I am no longer afraid of them. This quilt is tempting….
Here’s another Primitive Gathering pattern that is tempting me…oh I love those little pieces.
Remember that paper pieced pattern that I bought last time I was at Country Threads…the one with the paper piecing that I haven’t gotten to yet? Look…here’s another paper pieced beauty.
Here is a Round Robin monthly sampler quilt. Oh…this tempted me. I would love to make the quilt. It was hard to get a good photo. The quilt was hung on the slant of the ceiling.
Here Country Threads’ version of a Miss Rosie quilt. I had seen this pattern before but it didn’t really appeal to me….then I saw Country Threads’ version and am looking at the pattern in a different light.
If I ever finish my current wool project, I think I just might purchase the goodies to make this….
I also noticed that Country Threads is carrying patterns from a new to me designer Geoff’s Mom…I really like her work. They had more of her patterns which were so, so tempting.
Oh…there really are so many projects and truly too little time. After seeing all that great stuff…aren’t you proud of me for not purchasing any fabric??
