Ready for Fall

Long time no chat!  As my summer winds down (busiest time at work for me), I'm getting closer to returning to sewing on a more regular basis, which means fall is on the way!  I'm also incredibly excited to see the leaves change colors, the air to be cooler, football, school starting up and

Yesterday I had the opportunity to check out the Quilting and Knitting Expo here in Columbia.  It was not too crowded, and had a nice turnout of vendors; but not to many had anything I really was interested in...until I came across the Some Art Fabric booth.  All of the pics below are fabric I picked up from their booth:

I've seen the Ghastlies out and about on different blogs the past year or two, but finally had a chance to see them in person and pick some up:

Girl is very excited about them and I'm kind of excited to make a fun, Ghastlie fall quilt!

And since I was in an Alexander Henry kind of mood, I also picked up some cuts of Cartas Marcadas and After Dark

and I really want more of the After Dark in the different color ways! (And now I fear I have a new fabric obsession with Alexander Henry).

I also picked up a few half yard cuts of Kokka:

Of the remaining vendors, I hit one more booth and picked up some random half yard pieces that I thought were cute and would be good additions to my stash:

I also picked up a cute quilt pattern that fits a need I have for a new baby quilt; I'll share more on that later!

and that's all she wrote...for now!
