Gerda ... that is very cute!

Ms. Cindy ... I have shopped the $2 per yard clearance sale at the LQS that is moving and found these beauties for more hexagons ...  

as soon as I get them washed and cut I will let you know how many more sets I am sending in my second mailing ... and I will have them in the mail by the end of the week ...

This was the first one on the Moda link. Enjoy!

so very strange that my post from last night appears to have "poofed" I have 50 sets so far but I have more fabric to pull so there might be more.

Like Doreen, I'll be happy to take the stranger ones as well. I'm not going to do a flower garden, but a scrappy hex so I'll take anything :)

 I'll have these in the mail to you by the end of the week Cindy since I'm leaving to go out of town Friday.

Here's what the first 50 sets are from:

Hey Gerda - please don't do anything special on my account.  It might make it harder for Cindy when she's sorting for the swap.  But thanks for thinking of me!

Jen - do I see fabric with hexagons on it?  Hexagons made out of hexagons!

Pat - is your back feeling better?  Was that shop in Lowell?  Is it still selling out?  Might make a road trip

lol Doreen you are correct! That is fabric from a costume I had when i was about 12. I sang country music in that one :) I still have about 2 yards of it so thought it could be put to use!

Jenn ... love the "hexagons" fabric ...

Cindy ... I am cutting more 4" squares today ...

Doreen ... the LQS that is moving is in Pelham, NH, and is called "Bits and Pieces" ... just over the state line and about 15 minutes from my house ...  

Here is their website ... (which really needs to be updated ... obviously they have been focusing on moving and she has been a vendor at many nearby quilt shows this spring, even two on the same weekend ... she is a very hard worker) ...

http://www.bnpquilts.com/about.html

and here is a map ...

http://www.bnpquilts.com/map.html

I think you would be reaching it off an exit off of 93 North, but I do not know which one, as I obviously always take the local roads. It can also be reached by taking the Route 38 exit off of 495 North, but you would have to drive north through downtown Lowell.

On Saturday Liz, the owner, told me that she would be sending out an email to her newsletter list advertising her moving sale. So sign up for her newsletter and you will start getting notices of her weekend sales, too. This is the place that regularly has 25 fat quarters for $25 ... and tons to chose from, including new arrivals.

Her lease is not up until mid-July at her old shop so she is using it to clear extra inventory.  They had a lot of bolts still there on Saturday and pickings were good. The new shop is diagonally across the street from her old shop and both are open. I do not know if both shops are open all the hours listed. I imagine that would depend on her help.  On Saturday, I caught her at a time when she was emptying a load from her truck and when I told her that I had come to shop the sales, she went over and opened the old shop up for me and two other shoppers followed us across the street.

It is so nice to see a local fabric store thriving and expanding right now ...   Pat

Thanks Pat!  I used to live in Andover so I'm a bit familiar with the area.
