We’ve been having a great time with family this week! I’ve even gotten some work on my Brinton Hall quilt while traveling.
One of the hexie frames above still needs to be appliquéd to the background. I should get that done tomorrow. I have also started basting hexies for the path in between.
We made a stop in Mexico, Missouri to visit Homestead Hearth, a shop I have ordered from several times. It was so worth the side trip!
One of the items I purchased was this package of needles.
Oh, my goodness! What a difference a good needle can make! You all were so right! I will never use cheap needles again.
I have ordered scrap bags from Homestead Hearth in the past and I purchased a few more when I was there.
Each bag contains one pound of scraps. I purchased bags that had reproduction fabrics. They cost $9.00 each. I plan to use these for the scrappy hexies I will need for my Brinton Hall quilt.
I also hit up their clearance room. I got a couple of these panels:
A couple fat quarters:
This Civil War panel:
A bit of French General:
And a couple bundles of yardage. Check out those prices!
I got 4 scrap packs and spent less than $60. We also made a detour to Missouri Star Quilt Company. I will share that loot another day!
