After returning from Flat Rock, and a very wonderful, quilt-filled weekend with Laura, the hubby and I headed for Charlotte to help with the grandkids. Then, it was on to Pawley’s Island and that oceanfront screened porch I posted about earlier.It was a wonderful, relaxing trip and one day was especially memorable. I found a quilt shop in nearby Murrell’s Inlet that I didn’t know about. It wasn’t easy to find. It was in a secluded side alley in a strip mall. It was worth the hunt, though! Here are some photos from Accent Sewing:ALL of their fabric was 25% off! This was just one small portion.
I was strong, and didn’t buy any fabric. I did pick up a copy of the #3 Cake Mix and an 8″ square in a square ruler.After that visit, I was starving, so we headed on up to Myrtle Beach to our favorite hole in the wall eatery!
This is another place that’s hard to find, but WELL worth the effort! I love the BBQ grilled shrimp and Kent likes the blackened grouper. Look for it on Broadway behind the Methodist Church. Tell Steven, Andrew and Agnes we sent you!
Then, it was straight out Hwy 501 to revisit Quilting at the Beach!This shop has the friendliest folks!
We have a timeshare at what is probably the oldest and smallest condominium complex in Myrtle Beach. We paid it a quick visit to check on the progress of the elevator that has been 27 years in coming:At last, it was back to Pawley’s for dinner, which, after a late lunch, I think was a milkshake!
The Cake Mixes have diagrams for triangle arrangements, but I remembered seeing one online for 72 configurations using only half square triangles! We found it! Here it is! I wish I knew who to credit for the original.
We printed ourselves a copy for our sewing rooms, and Laura tried these arrangements;
I visited my friend, Laura Sheaffer, who lives in the Hendersonville- Brevard region of western North Carolina. We attended the Western North Carolina Quilters Guild show at Bonclarken Conference Center in Flat Rock. At the show, we happened to purchase a couple of pads of quilting papers called, Cake Mixes. We each bought a different pad and went to her house and played!
It has been one year since I posted! I have done quite a bit of crafting this year and need to catch up! Photos coming soon!
It’s just flurries, but after all our warm weather, what a surprise!!!
I bought this image from Graphic Stock. I think it will make beautiful glass gem pendants!
