We went to ‘Star Wars Night’ at the Milwaukee Brewer’s baseball game with some friends on Saturday, and on our way ‘home’ (ok, yes, it was 15 miles in the opposite direction), we stopped at a couple of quilt shops. The first one had moved but the info on google hadn’t been updated, so sadly I missed out on that one. The next one we went to was a nice little surprise. It is Patched Works and they have a lot of ‘my style’ fabric…lots of Sweetwater (all of Holly’s Tree Farm, some leftover Elementary), and tons and tons of solids. Like every darn color you can imagine.
I picked up this great Kate Spain print and a couple of solids for the Hazel I’m going to put in my cubicle at work. They cut fat quarters of the blues for me which is always a nice surprise – my LQS won’t cut FQs. After we were back on the road, I realized that I bought enough of the solids for a ‘regular’ sized Hazel, not for the super-sized version, so I’ll have to decide if I want to go big or just do the small one.
They also have this big selection of comic book fabric – Betty Boop, Pokemon, Archie (Archie!!! We had to explain that one to the kids), lots of Star Wars, and Super Heroes.
Wonder Woman is ‘my’ superhero. I have her on my keychain, a little stuffed one on my desk at work, and I’m seriously contemplating a tattoo. So yeah, I totally bought a yard of it. Along with some Pokemon fabric for The Blue One. He has requested a pillowcase.
They also had ‘Gretchen’s’ fabric – lots of Tula and some Ghastlies, and I spied the Tula ribbon as well.
I’m glad we stopped at that shop today. My husband is pretty great and very indulgent when it comes to my quilt shop side trips! Thank goodness for him!
Happy week, everyone!
Linking up to Molli yet again!
