Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

A Weekend of This and That

First up is Part 2 of the Quiltville Mystery Quilt – Chilhowie. I’m running about a week behind.  When clue #2 came out I was in the home stretch of finishing the UFOs on my challenge list so I barely looked at clue # 2. As when I have a big push to finish something I’m exhausted both mentally and physically. But I rallied this weekend for a road trip.

Last December Ruby and I traveled to Dekalb, Mississippi to visit Village Cloth Shoppe and I purchased fabric for my Pizza Box quilt – 1 yard each of the pink, green, yellow and blue and 4 yards of the black and multi-colored fabric. I’ve finally decided on a layout and I didn’t have enough of the blue or black fabric.  Although I could attempt a search of the black fabric as the name is in the selvage, there was no identifying information on the blue.  So, this past weekend we headed back to Dakalb.  My intention was to simply ask the owner if she had any of the fabric. But as she was with a customer, I walked down the aisle of black fabrics. Lo and behold, there was the bolt. Since I got lucky with the black fabric I circled to around to the blue, and found it!   I also picked up the card pattern.

On our way home we took a side trip to Sciple’s Water Mill.

We picked up some stone ground corn meal, fish fry, grits, and wheat.

We stopped for lunch in Philadelphia, MS, which is the home town of Marty Stuart – which reminded us we wanted to go see The World of Marty Stuart at Two Mississippi Museums, which we did Sunday afternoon.
