My stash report took a hit this week, and I am holding my husband responsible. We went for a drive to the north Georgia mountains on Monday, and of course had to stop at the quilt shops. He even insisted on paying for the fabrics as an early birthday gift--what a great guy!!
We visited two different quilt shops in Dahlonega, GA--Magical Threads and The Common Thread. They are very different stores, and I am crazy about them both. Magical Threads is in a big old house, with fabrics in the rooms on the main floor, and the owner lives upstairs. She also carries a good selection of yarns. This is a shop where I love running across some older fabrics that I have purchased and/or used before. It is like running into old friends again! The two border stripe fabrics that I got there are going to become placemats as Christmas gifts, and the black stripe will become a border or backing for my Easy Street quilt.
The next group of fabrics all came from The Common Thread. As you can see, I love the print with the rings of lighter dots. I already had that print in a couple other colors, and was very happy to add these. No specific plans for any of these fabrics. I guess I hadn't been in this store for awhile--it was a very nice surprise to discover that they had expanded their space. The store has plenty of room and great lighting. Tons of beautiful fabrics await!
