Priceless Coin Purses

I enjoyed the U R Priceless blog hop so much! I was inspired to purchase the tutorial/pattern. Madame Samm is very talented, visit her blog when you have time!

I made coin purses for my sisters and Mom for Christmas!

It was fun selecting the fabrics from my stash. The tutorial instructions were easy to follow and all of photos included in the tutorial were fantastic! You definitely need patience when sewing on the frame, but the more I sewed on, the better I got!  My sisters and Mom loved their coin purses!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Visit to Mama's Quilt Shop

While visiting my family in south Louisiana during Christmas, we were able to go to Mama's Quilt Shop, in Independence, Louisiana. My sister, Georgia-Girl Quilter, my Mom and myself enjoyed visiting with Mrs. Brenda, the owner, and Mrs. Martha who works there on Saturday's. The last time we were at the shop, I forgot to take pictures so I was sure to take pictures this time.

It's hard to imagine there's a lot of fabric goodness inside this building but there is!!


and bolts..

and bolts of fabric goodness!

Awesome Fat Quarter section, rulers and inspirational books!

To see all the wonderful quilts in progress and finished quilts that are hanging in the store, go to my sisters blog to get inspired!
