Rugs have always been a kind of “under foot” thing for me….but today as Jason and I wandered --- these gorgeous rugs just stood out and demanded to be photographed, and petted!
I mean, as a quilter…wouldn’t this rug just stop you in your tracks?
It’s applique heaven!
Even if I didn’t buy the rug ((Let’s face it, that black background isn’t going to stay only black for very long!!)) I could see it as the source for much inspiration whether you do regular applique, or felted wool.
And it came in another color way too – but I liked the black background best:
I nearly bought this one too..it was only $24.99 – but I know that white is not going to stay white long either in my house! This one looks very Christmassy, doesn’t it? Almost Baltimore Album inspired.
How about this display!
Large triangles in shades of blue, black and grey --- next to a rectangular confection so graphic it made my eyes dance!
A trio of black and white hanging on one wall.
This one was hanging on a rack, and the sample could not come OFF the rack, so we had to just get what bit we could of it…..
We had the best time and I hope it isn’t long before Jason feels the need for “Mom Time” again! This was the highlight of my week, and extra nice since we won’t see him for Easter --
Now that I’m home – it’s time for crawling into jammies, and doing some home stitching. For those who have asked – Quilt-Cam is planned for tomorrow night, Weds Mar 27 at 9pm Eastern. It’s our only Quilt-Cam this week because I leave on Monday, April 1st for Nashville.
