A Very Good Friday

I'm thrilled to report that we now have one and a half cars up and running so that I was able to get to The Golden Gese today, Yeay!!!!! Kudos to my home mechanics, Husband Wonderful (Felix), and Star Border (Matthew), YEAY!!! Thank you, guys! -since writing this, now the second car is up and running.

This quilt shop is on 22 Liberty Street in Concord, New Hampshire has a lively gang that calls itself The Friday Quilters.


We have a great time sharing our stories, our quilt projects, and we chomp a little chocolate, too!

Here's Heidi sharing her marvelous progress on her batiks. I told her that it makes me think of Jazz music like Dave Brubeck's "Take Five".


Beverly was doing a wild animal prints quilt and has a lot of it done. Good job, Beverly!


Our dear mascot, Yoda, was beautifully behaved and napped quite a bit.


I really did work a wee bit on my strips for the piano key borders but silly me, forgot to get a picture.

Our Fearless Leader, Claire, helped today by cutting some lovely fabrics for me.


These are the ones I'd picked out and my budget is always thin, so I tried to shop the sale corner where the bargains can't be beaten.


Half price and no shipping charges, Wheeeee!


The Fat Quarters were $2.75 a pop, but who can argue with the selection of these gorgeous cheddars?


The neutrals in historic selections were very good, too.


Please understand that The Golden Gese is a full service quilt shop with 1930's, Brights, Batiks, Florals, Christmas, Novelties, well, just about everything. I just choose the Civil War stuff and that's my personal bias. So there!

Happy Sewing!

You've gotten me interested in these fabrics with your beautiful pictures. I'm getting dangerously close to being a collector. :)

Great fabric choices. You all look like you are having loads of fun!

Glad you were able to get there, Vic!
I love "Take Five". Whenever I hear it I have to try and beat time to it, since it is in the unusual 5/4 meter.
You found some wonderful cheddars! Yum. : )
