Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

A Shopping Expedition / Chilhowie

Yesterday I drove a little over an hour to Brookhaven, Mississippi to shop at a new-to-me quilt shop –Gardensong.  This shop has everything, including an awesome collection of batiks.

Many of you know that Bonnie Hunter released the colors for this year’s Quiltville Mystery quilt, Chilhowie.  My personal rule is I can’t start a new mystery quilt until the last one I started is finished.  I finished Frolic , the 2019 mystery, last week. I posted about it Friday. Information about this year’s mystery can be found HERE.

While I was in Lowe’s for the 3rd or 4th time in as many days, I picked up the color cards. When I got home, I discovered I had the PERFECT greens left over from a quilt I made a couple of years ago. I wouldn’t have to buy any.  The lavender fabric (from the same quilt) is a bit lighter than the paint chips, but why not?  I need a few more pieces of the lavender, lighter oranges, and the neutrals – if I can find them “locally”.

 

Gardensong did not disappoint.  I’m so glad the shop is over an hour away.  It’s close enough to get to, but yet far enough away I can’t just drop in on a whim.
