Moda Country Fair Blog Hop Day 5

Hello and welcome to day 5 of the Moda Country Fair Blog Hop.

Today's featured designer is Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.
Hop on over to her blog to see the project she has to offer -
I am quite sure you are all going to want to make her project.

The quote of the day is:
My husband lets me buy all the fabric I can hide.
Author Unknown.

If the author is your husband, it is truly your lucky day as Edyta has a project that is ideal for hiding fabric - or should I say ideal for disguising your intent to buy fabric. Make sure you watch her video, it is the only way to get the full effect of her project.

Speaking of fabric, I would like you to meet some friends of mine.

Ivan and Ruth Johnson.
Ivan has passed since this picture was taken
and we miss him and his quilts dearly.
Ivan was an avid quilter right along side Ruth.
Ruth never had to worry about hiding fabric
as Ivan probably bought more fabric than Ruth.
This is just one room of the stash.
And buy the way at 87 Ruth is still buying fabric,
and she cranks out a quilt about every two weeks.

Stop by tomorrow for the quote of the day and to hook up with the girls at Basic Grey.

I think everyone out there in blog land should go out and buy one fat quarter of fabric today.
There would be no need to hide just one fat quarter and think what it would do for the economy.

  1. Hi Sandy, Just wanted to thank you for this County Fair...I am learning alot and getting lots of inspiration from your guests...your quote of the day is terrific...i particularly liked the one a few days ago about sisters being the chocolate chips in the cookie of cute! I have 3 sisters and will share this with them...and a batch of cookies! Cheers!

  2. I like your suggestion - buy just ONE fat quarter, what harm could that do? It's just one tiny piece of fabric. It's affordable and takes up almost no room at all. And then, the next day, you could buy just one, and the next day, just one........

  3. Love going to the Moda Country Fair.
    Thanks for a great blog.

  4. Your idea for helping the economy is small step.....

  5. I love Ivan and Ruth - so sweet! My Mom is 83 and still quilting - all by hand. Since Dad isn't into spending too much on quilty stuff, I supply her fabric needs. Gives me so much pleasure to give my Mom beautiful fabric to make quilts and she doesn't have to depend on whatever she has on hand. My Mom is my inspiration - love her so much. Thanks for posting about Ivan and Ruth. Makes my heart smile.


  6. Does two charm packs count? ;)

  7. Oops....I think I bought a few (several) other people's daily quota today. I'm not taking any of it back, though!
