For a good time, see if you can visit your local quilt shop! I was able to visit Studio Stitch last week because they are observing strict social distancing and mask guidelines, including limiting the number of people in the shop at a time. It was SO MUCH FUN to get to shop for fabric after being quarantined for 6 months! I appreciate the care the staff are taking to try to keep everyone safe.
I should mention that I also checked the public health report and noted that COVID was trending down in Greensboro before going there.
Here’s the haul from one visit to the shop:Yes, the gray and white fabrics are metallic! And the fat quarter at the far right just jumped into my basket while my other fabric was being cut. (Not my fault!!)
Which leads me to the OMG part. For the first time, I am joining the One Monthly Goal challenge. I’ve seen several blogging friends doing this for quite some time but haven’t joined up. So, here is my OMG for September:
In September my goal is to make a quilt from these fabrics and write a pattern for that quilt.
The pattern will be available through Studio Stitch when I finish it. If you subscribe to their free newsletter (subscription form is about half way down their home page) you will see a picture and information on getting the pattern when the time comes. And of course I’ll show the quilt here when it’s finished!
That’s all the excitement for now. Has anybody else been able to visit a shop in person with precautions in place? Thanks for reading, and stay safe!
