A beautiful morning and my top secret quilt

This morning Hannah and I went to Myerstown to drop off my Disney embroidery machine to have it repaired. We then traveled another 5 miles down Hwy 422 to "Martin's Fabric Barn". All I can say is "WOW"!!! They have tons and tons of flat folds for $2.98 a yard. I got 12 different prints for my "Top Secret" quilt! There were quite a few Amish and Mennonite quilters coming in and out of the store while we were there.
As we were leaving, an Amish horse and buggy was coming down the road, and it was just too beautiful not to photograph.
Next Saturday we are going to a store called "In Stitches" It's about 5 miles from here in Wolmesdorf, PA. It looks like a lot of fun. You know, this area really is a paradise for quilters!!
Now...about my top secret quilt. My dear friend Susan of AbbySue Designs -- and is a budding new quilt pattern designer. She has designed a pattern that I am going to test for her. I am so excited about it. When the quilt is finished and the pattern published, everyone will get to see it! :-)

  1. That is exciting to test a new pattern for a quilt designer. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

    Quilting fabric for $2.98 a yard is such a sweet deal!

    Love the picture of the Amish buggy going down the road and the snowy scene.
