Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

San Antonio Shopping

Last week I was in San Antonio, so naturally I needed to visit the quilt shops – even though I didn’t need anything.

The first shop was Mesquite Bean Fabrics.  I stayed strong, but my sister did buy the fabric shown above so I can complete this quilt.

The 2nd stop was Las Colchas – Quilt Shop. It is housed in an Sears Craftsman house. The ladies were very friendly, but I still was staying strong and didn’t buy anything.

Thursday afternoon, we hit 3 more shops. At the new Grome’s Sewing Machine Shop in Universal City, batiks were 50% off, patterns 30% off and the clearance fabric was 30% off.  I succumbed and bought a yard from clearance and a yard of batik (top left corner) and the Harrison Shirt pattern.

Then we drove out to McQueeney and stopped in at Fiberworx Fabric Studio.  We found wonderful neutrals (the pile in the middle back) so bought 6 half-yard cuts and split them when we got back to San Antonio.  I also picked up 2 sets of 1/2″ magnets for a project I have planned.

We then had to make a decision — head to New Braunfels or continue east to Luling.  We ended up at HollyDee Quilts at Luling, which was my downfall.  I was born in Texas and lived there until I finished 7th grade, I then moved back and spent another 8 or 9 years there as an adult so, I have a fondness of Bluebonnets.  I bought the 2022 Bluebonnet Shop Hop kit (bundle in top left), a FQ of Texas wildflowers, and a Bluebonnet pattern. My sister picked up several of the Villa Rosa Design pattern cards and needed  2 more for a bundle price and I picked Bohemia and another, which I’ve given to my sister-in-law.

Saturday, I did make it to The Quilt Haus at New Braunfels, but held strong in not buying fabric.

All of the shops had fabric I hadn’t seen here in Mississippi, but I was watching my pocket book and luggage space.
