Quilt shop trip..

I went down to visit my Aunt this weekend and we went to a local quilt shop, Quilter's Heaven. I tried to be really good, as I was only planning on buying fabric for a quilt I am planning on making. I want to make a quilt using grey linen, and lots of different oranges. I love how this block looks, fun and simple :)
I did get a variety of oranges, I still think I may need more though. The fabric on the left is sock monkey fabric, I want to make some little baby shoes with it. The white with teal/light brown fabric is from Marcus Brothers and is so soft and silky I couldn't resist. Despite my fabric buying 'diet' I only walked out with two impulse purchases, which was really good considering the amount of lovely fabric they have at this shop! I like Quilter's Heaven better than my own local quilt shop :)
And I had to pick up a yummy cannoli on the way home. I don't know any place local to get a cannoli, so I bought two. I had every sweet intention of sharing one with my sweetie when he got home from work that night. I shared one in the car ride with Kiki, and the other one was eaten promptly after taking this picture. :P
