Checking In

   Back from apartment hunting in Alabama!  The hilly terrain of Birmingham was quite a surprise after living in flat Florida.  Also made the observation that there is a dearth of quilt shops in Alabama.  We drove to one north of the city only to find it out-of-business.  Don't you hate that?  My daughter found one (in Ozark, Alabama) on the way back, Front Porch Quilt  Shoppe, that we stopped at.  I highly recommend it if you're ever in the area.  It was a Quilt Sampler (magazine) shop just last year. And wow! A few iPhone pictures I snapped but they really don't do it justice.
I loved this quilt.  Seems like it would be great with a layer cake or two...
I think the jack-o-lanterns quilt was my favorite.  There's just something about purple and orange paired with those happy faces!  I really had to control myself with purchases.  The shop had so many layer cakes, charm packs, and mini charm packs all matching along with yardage!
I narrowed it down to a couple of half yards of low volume fabrics, two fat quarters, and a charm pack in Daydream.
And just because...
Have a nice weekend~

I love that fun Jack-o-Lantern quilt. :) And the photos of the bunny are adorable.
