I spent part of today in Amherst visiting a few of the venues included in the Nova Scotia Fibre Festival. The 2 hour drive there was lovely. The fall colours are ablaze. I went to Dayle's Department Store to check out the fabrics and have a look at the quilts that were displayed around the store. I bought three metres of a Maywood design called "No Girls Allowed". I had bought some on a previous visit and I loved it so much I just had to get more and it was only $4.00 a mtr! I am very attracted to circles or bubbly-looking designs. I have just started to collect polka-dot fabric so this will work well for a background when I decide what I am going to make with the polka-dot fabric.
Then I went to check out Karen Neary's Quilt Show and Sale. What a feast for quilty eyes. I am such a fan of Karen's designs so to be able to be in a large room full of her work was such a treat. I took lots of pics but most of them came out blurry and not good enough to post. Darn.
