This is not a quilt blog, but...

My niece, Barbara, makes beautiful quilts and works part time at a quilt store. I visited her shop a couple of years ago and was amazed at the fabulous fabrics available for making quilts!  I don't have the urge to make quilts at this time; but who knows what will happen in the future?  Meantime, I know that quilt fabric stores are great sources for lovely fabrics to use in collage and other artwork.  With that in mind, I visited Red Hen Fabrics in Marietta Saturday.  It was a lovely visit!  I got to see lots of lovely quilts and found some nice little fabric remnants.  Here are some pictures.

Here's what I bought:
The blue fabric at the top of the photo is a fat quarter.  I really fell in love with this fabric!  The next 4 pieces are "fat eighths" which contain plenty of fabric for artwork.  The geisha fabric at the bottom is 1/4 yard.  These pictures were so pretty!  You can look for these things to show up in my artwork.
