I am so excited to be able to participate in the new QFAH on http://www.patchworktimes.com/. I just picked out my fabrics (as an early birthday present) at my local quilt store. It was so much fun going to look at all the different fabrics and this time I had a great experience. I went to two different stores today and one I will not be returning too. I am a young quilter and I look young for my age so when I go into some quilting stores the women who are working there make me feel like I don't belong. This one particular store that I went into first, I have visited a few times and everytime that I have gone the people who are working there are not friendly and give me looks the entire time I am in the store. Today when I came in the store the women up front just looked at me and didn't greet me they just stared. The second store that I went into today the ladies were so helpful and gave me great advice. The difference between the two stores was that the first one I felt so uncomfortable I wouldn't have asked for help and the second store they came up to me and made me feel like they wanted my business.
Now that I have vented lets see the fabric. Since I don't have the stash like many other quilters because I am fairly new to quilting. I still have to go out to buy fabric for new projects, darn :)
The green fabric is going to be my dark background, the dots will be the light background, and the stripe will be the binding. My stars are going to come from these six fabrics. I have to order some fabric online and I may pick 1 or 2 more fabrics for the stars.
