No, it's not my birthday! But I did have one in July and here is one of my gifts. My mom always sends me money for my birthday and I spent it on fabric this year. We took our beach vacation just after my birthday and I had already made up my mind to spend my birthday money at a quilt shop this time. There is a beautiful little shop in Morehead City and I have always wanted some of the 30's reproduction "Aunt Grace" fabrics. Not only did I receive the gift of fabric, but I spent a leisurely afternoon browsing through the shop all by myself that day. No distractions, no one rushing me along! I'm not sure what I will do with these pretty prints, but I sure do like looking at them. Even though I didn't live during that time, I love the nostalgic feeling of old things. I like the beautiful "art" quilts that are being made today, however, I still consider the old timey patchwork quilts the best!
