The Great Pumpkin Sits on Mom's Kitchen Cabinet

My visits with Mom and Dad are always too short. I have been taking pictures and buying fabric. Seriously buying fabric; I have never spent so much on fabric in two days in my whole life! We shopped at Quilter's Station and Harper's. We ate lunch across the street from Harper's at the Farm to Market Cafe. I had the eggplant, tomato and feta cheese sandwich. Yum! The cafe had quilts for sale on the walls, and I very nearly bought the most beautiful, adorable quilt ever. The woman, Robin, who pieced and appliqued the top was the same person who rang us out at Harper's, so we went back over there to talk to her. She told me what the pattern company was, and I ordered the pattern online last night. Quilt Soup's pattern example does not even come close to the quilt Robin made. I think the variations in the fabrics and quilting really made it worth the price she was asking (more, really). But I hesitated, and left it for some other really lucky person.
And Dad made this wonderful apple pie!
