Vacation Finds and Finishes

Well I had intended on posting while we were in Myrtle Beach but I took lots of pictures and can't find my camera cord for transfer. I think I left it in MB :( I did however re-take some pictures of my finds and finishes to show. When I get a replacement cord I hope to post more pics. This huge stack of fabs is from the Quilt Garden in Garden City. It's a newer quilt shop...maybe 6 months old...anyhow the owner has too many new fabrics coming so she was having a 50% off sale...um HELLO Moda..there was Simplicity,Daydreams, wildflower serenade, Posh, At the Water's Edge...plus P&B Tex. and Benartex, Michael Miller and on and on. I spent WAY too much...but I stocked up on backings. I found that I don't have many pieces of fabric over 2 yards but I have been making quilts that require yardage for the back. I stuck to the fabrics that will finish a project. I am quite pleased with what I found. Remember only $4.50 a yd.! As for "finishes" I did my second BOM from the Fatquartershop's mystery BOM. I think they are looking good so far...... I did this tabletopper with Wee Play fabrics and a kit from FQshop...can you tell I LOVE the FQ shop?
Oh here's a new project...it's made from my charm stash and fat quarter stash. I have a couple hundred triangles and I am going to attempt to make a scrappy quilt with these..ALL stash..wooohooo...
I may have shown this before..I am not sure, but it is done now...binding and all.
And this is finally done too...I am making another tumbler quilt as well..only BIG for me!

Here's another view.
Anyhow...as soon as I can get more pictures I will post..as there were a couple of quilts I want to show everyone. Until then....

love that tumbler quilt--thinking maybe I should do one too! LOL Like I need another project! But yours is so darn cute....And Pat's shop is called Quilter's Cottage :) I don't think she has a website though. too bad for her--she could have sold out in a heartbeat of all those yummy fabrics!
