Quiltin' Cruisers

My daughter and I are currently participating in the San Diego Cruisin' Quilters, which so far we've barely started. We've visited 8 of the 19 quilt shops, but we plan to visit them all before the week is over! Tomorrow is our big day, which we will hit all the San Diego shops. that means for us North County locals we have to drive way down in San Diego. A big deal for me, because I'm not all that familiar with the city (even though I've lived here for just over 20 years). In any case we are looking foward to the drive. It's been nice to see fabrics that I've only been able to see online, or some unique fabrics and patterns that I have never seen before, and of course oodles of inspiration! Plus, there are shops that I never knew they existed, now I plan to shop at in the near future. Here is a photo of some of my new purchases. I'm sure to have more by the weekend. Yikes!

The best part is that I have a buddy to shop with that lives under the same roof as I! If we could only get the same work schedules.
