Let's Bind It!

I love a good road trip. My idea of a good road trip is one that includes a few quilt shops. My trip to New Orleans was one item off my bucket list. I loved the history, the food and the unique shops in the French Quarter. I managed to visit several lovely quilt shops along the way and added a substantial amount of new fabrics to my stash. I did follow my list for the most part, so that's a good thing. My fabric purchases these days are mostly limited to things I really need -- certain colors or textures. I'm still working on reducing my stashed fabrics, and sometimes I have to buy a fabric or two to use something I already have. It really pays to have a plan, a fabric list and the desire to stick to it. Actually, it's a lot of fun searching for the right fabrics. It's sort of like a treasure hunt. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation.

Speaking of vacations, to all our quilters out there, we are planning our next Craftours and Annie's quilting trip, and it will be to Scotland! You can learn more at AnniesCraftStore.com; just click on the Annie's Craft Tours tab. I hope you choose to join me on this fabulous adventure. Come see this beautiful country and quilt with me. It promises to be a fantastic trip!

All best,


Carolyn S. Vagts
