Fabric finds in Boston and quilt progress!

Remember how I told you all I went to Boston a few weeks ago? Well I went to 3 fabric stores and found some things at 2 of them.  Here is what I found at the first store:

This fabric is black and has these leafy things coming off of it.  I have to admit, I have no idea what I am going to use it for.  I was thinking of a throw pillow or something.  It was so fun and cheap that I couldn't pass it up.  In fact, I liked it so much....
I got it in white too.  I just couldn't help myself.  Sometimes I have no will power.  Especially when PB is ooohhhing over it and telling me to buy it :)

This I picked up at Gather Here.  I have to say I wanted to take the whole store home with me.  I found this in the remnant pile and it will go perfect with the quilt I am making PB, you know, the one I sewed the whole top in one day!  I bought 2 fabrics that I was thinking about using for the back, but they just weren't quite right.  I think this was totally meant to be.  There was exactly the right amount of fabric I needed and it was reduced, which was a huge bonus.
I am working on his quilt a little this week.  I got the back pieced yesterday and last night.  I am in love with how those i-spy blocks really pop off the grey!!

I also made my quilt sandwich last night and I am ready to quilt!!! YAY!!!
Hubby is going to be doing a ton of traveling so it looks like I am going to get plenty of sewing time in.  Good timing too because B's wedding is next week and it is almost time to start working on teacher gifts!!

I see why you got that fabric in two colors...it is very cool. Throw pillows will be great. Can't wait to see his finished quilt.
