What a great day!
My two sisters and I met for lunch at the Huisache Grill in New Braunfels.
We ended up ordering the same thing, turkey sandwich and tortilla soup.
Great Food, Great Conversation, Great Time!
Emma headed back to Austin, but Adri and I visited two quilt shops.
June, at Oak Leaf Quilts was very helpful.
She gave me a couple of mini lessons on the spot.
I found this beautiful Cardinal panel and I purchased it, even though I do not know what I plan to do with it just yet.
June demonstrated some applique techniques for a Patchwork Maple Leaf Table Runner by Shabby Fabrics. Autumn is my favorite season, so I will be trying to make one of these.
There was a book that had some cute birthday patterns for table mats, runners, and chair covers.
Table Please Art-To-Heart has other cute patterns for summer and spring table items.
June told us about the Grandmas’ Stocking Guild, a non-profit organization that has been providing at risk youth from central Texas stockings from “grandma” since 2009. Stockings are made for the children, and the stockings are stuffed with items for these children. June gave us the pattern and my sister and I will be making some.
Adri and I also visited the Quilt Haus. Beautiful Fabric!
We had to cut our visit short, but we will return.
Note to Nancy: The Quilt Haus has a large selection of Texas fabric.
They have two absolutely gorgeous Texas wildflower quilts on display.
