During the fabulous Sewing Symposium we did hit up FIVE quilt shops. Sometimes I showed great restraint.... other times, not so much.
At The Bakery in Belle Fourche she had mini charm packs on SALE, so I kinda HAD to get some. I picked up four to make table runners- which is my favorite mini charm pack project. I bought the backings for three of the table runners. I also picked up a Ducks in a Row charm pack.
On Saturday we went to three shops. The first, Fabric City, was a great shop for me because I had my full punch card to shop with. I bought 8 rainbow fat quarters. Our group recently did a rainbow swap but I'm pretty sure a need a bit more for the quilt pattern I'm planning to do. I also grabbed one April Showers fat quarter for the binding on the table runner I'm planning.

At Quilt Connection I bought the fabric for my swoon quilt, which is the quilt along our group is going to start in September. I also picked up the red fabric for the backing of the Potluck table runner.
At our last Rapid shop, Quilt-iques, I bought two Christmas fat quarters for some ornaments I'm planning to make.
At our last shop, Hill City Mercantile, I kept it reined in and just picked up these three fat quarters. I think I'll make some zippy pouches with them.
So you can see I made out pretty well. I already have three of the four table runners done, but I'll share more about that later.
