I don't have a specific purpose in mind for today's post other than to share with you all what I've been up to the past few days...
First I'll start with a new-to-me Quilt Shop located in Los Angeles that I visited this past Saturday. Sew Modern is (to me) the perfect quilt fabric store located in an area I don't frequent often but now that I know they are there, I have a feeling I will be getting to know the area quite well.

Why do I think it is a perfect quilt fabric store: The store wasn't cutsey or huge, the store owner was wearing a darling dress made of an Anna Maria Horner Loulouthi pattern (instantly liked her....), the large wall of Kona solids and flannels and there were very creative modern quilts punctuating the walls all around. I recognized many popular quilting fabrics - so fun to see them in person and to compare in my mind how much they differ from my computer screen image. I enjoyed browsing but only purchased the Kona grey flannel backing and black cotton binding I need for the T-Shirt Quilt. Excited to have Sew Modern on my radar...I'll be back.
My boy had a birthday and I made him these:
|Fourteen pancakes for the 14 yr old|
|AC Milan cake|
|Box Kite by Angela Pingel from 99 Modern Blocks|
No sewing/quilting for a few days as I'm knee deep in writing 8th Grade California Gold Rush Lesson plans and studying for two midterms next week. So much to do....need to make more time.
Hope you all have a great day~
