Nova Leftovers and Portland

Yikes, where have I been the last few weeks? Actually, I'm working on two quilts. One is English paper piecing, and it is pieced, but not been exposed to the camera. 

The other was made from the leftovers from "Kelly's Stars", a quilt that I made earlier using about 10-11 fat quarters. I am calling it "Nova Leftovers and planning on putting some beads on it, but here is a photo without the beads. The binding isn't finished in this picture. I'll post a bigger one when the beads are on it.

I also promised Portland pictures but didn't take any. I spent all my time in "Fabric Depot" an incredible store with massive stock of quilt fabric. I planned to get backing for three big quilts and fabric for two, so was able to focus (barely) and not spend all my money. The rest of the time (and money) went to quilt books at Powell's City of Books... heaven for book lovers. Their shelf of quilt books was about 8 feet high and 20 feet long. I bought eight... and that was all my suitcase could manage!

Sounds like you used ample restraint while being in such stores! Not sure that I would have done as well.
