North Carolina Patterns

I did get to visit one quilt shop while I was in North Carolina, Sew It Seams, in Morehead City. It's a nice small shop with a little bit of everything. I like to look for unique or local quilty things when I'm shopping away from home, so I was really happy when I found these two patterns by designers from North Carolina. The Two-Hour Tulip Purse pattern is designed by Janice Pope. The shop sample was absolutely adorable made up in cowboy fabrics...how could I resist that one? The Kwik Pinwheel/Flower pattern was designed by Two Kwik Quilters of Jacksonville. That one had me sold before I even realized that it was by a local designer! It's a freezer paper pattern that you stack the fabrics and cut them all at the same time...no measuring and no templates! I'm anxious to try both patterns, but I'm trying really hard to stick to my "finish the UFO's before starting any new projects" rule. That rule is getting harder and harder to follow though when I keep finding projects like these!

Great looking patterns Susan. The bag is so lovely, can't wait to see your one finished. (You're catching my bad habits!-lol)

Sympathies Susan. I know that feeling as soon as I've caught up on blogland I'm going to push on with the WIPS.
