Fall Fun

No sewing, scrappy or otherwise, at my house this week!  My husband and I took a fall vacation for the first time ever, to New York State, and just returned yesterday.  The fall scenery, wonderful wineries of the Finger Lakes region, and the quilt shops, did not disappoint!  So, instead, of sewing, I added to my stash, and along with it the fun of contemplating what this fabric might eventually be used for.

Some of my purchases were fabric lines I've looked at online and was able to pick up on the trip, including a charm pack of Holly's Tree Farm, and one of Moda Modern Backgrounds in Paper.   Others were just fun fat quarters that will go into my stash.

Love the color combo in the photo below!  I might need to collect some more of this!

At the last quilt shop, Carriage House Quilts, in Naples, New York, I picked up some novelty fat quarters, which I don't buy very often.  But these I had to have, a fun souvenir of our wine trip to the Finger Lakes!

I'm thinking of a mini/table topper for my dining room table - one of my favorite kinds of quick projects!  I think I'll get started on it right away!

Happy Sunday Sewing to all of you!  Linking up with Oh Scrap at Quilting is More Fun than Housework!

Love your fabric choices Diann. Especially that group you put together.

What a great idea to take a fall vacay. Your fabrics are gorgeous. A quilter's souvenir buying is really different than "normal" tourists - lol!

Was it the Grape Festival in Naples while you were there Diann? We used to love to go down right after the festival (avoided the crowds that way) The Fingerlakes are so gorgeous in Autumn.
Glad you had such a fun trip!

I got some very similar fabric with wine glasses (no bottles) on it and made a tote bag for my next-door neighbour in Florida! I have a bit left...a tabletopper is a great idea! Those look like some great finds--I can see a beautiful Fall quilt with those in the middle pic. Ah, Finger Lakes...hope you got to see some colours starting.
