sew many blocks

Currently, I'm working on three quilts.
one miniature, other one is a lap size and the quilt for my dear husband.

Here's the progress,

3"x3", 9 patches for miniature quilt.

T square block pattern by Temecula Quilt Co.

Lady Liberty, Chevron and U.S.A. block for DH's quilt that I named "Semper Fidelis".

"Semper Fidelis" means "Always Faithful" for Latin. This is the U.S. Marine Corps motto since 1883.

Temecula Quilt Co. Here we come!

Gosh, time is flying.
My last post was what!? July 4th!?
My quilting buddy Lisa and I (+ Mindy) went to Temecula Quilt Co. today.

We have been talking about this shop a while but never had a chance to visit.
So today was the first time visit and we felt in LOooove this shop!!!!

This shop is the reproduction quilt lover's dream place.
F.I.Y. this wall-hanging is Kathleen Tracy's pattern.

I love the way they display quilts. Isn't this lovely?

Lisa is holding a little quilt made with Jo Morton's fabric. We adore those colors.

I love this charming T square quilt.

Here's my hubby's damage this time.*LOL*
A lot of Jo Morton's new line, the fabric roll assembled by Temecula Quilt Co. and their little quilt booklets.
We also stopped at quilt shop called Quilter's coop. It's not so far from Temecula Quilt Co.
I totally forgot to take pictures though.*LOL*
They carry varieties of fabric, from 30's to Moda-flowerish to Novelties to plaids. I picked a couple wools in this shop as you see in picture.
I surely got a very good motivation from today's visit!!!
