First, from a quilt shop I visited
while in Rhode Island...
Here's the entrance:
|Folk Art Quilts, Wakefield, RI|
My camera evidently didn't flash, so no inside picture, sorry -
but, here's the stash I gathered:
that's all the fabrics that I need, (yes, Need) for my
hand-embroidery project for this year -
Snow Days/Crabapple Hill.The fabric on the left is Primitive Muslin by Primitive Gatherings, that I chose for my stitchery blocks. Then, look at all of those great lights and mediums for the block piecings!
Next I drove through a corner of Massachusetts and back into Rhode Island
(!, not as bad as it sounds, it was only 25 minutes:)
and stopped in this shop:
|Just Quilts, Bristol, RI|
Don't know what I'll do with it, but I LOVE trees,
so I will find something to make, I'm sure.
Then on the drive home,
Sweetie, being bored in the car at only two hours into our 12+ hour drive,
plugged "quilts" into the GPS-thingy
(without me asking, btw; that's one of the reasons I call him Sweetie:)
and found a quilt shop only 20 minutes off the path home!
And he must have been really bored already,
as he suggested we make the side trip!
We found this quilt shop in the corner of an "L"-shaped strip center.
|Quilting By The Yard, Vernon, CT|
than the impression given by the strip center!
Each of those alcoves, pictured above, is a different family of color in their color wall!!
Totally worth the side-trip, even if it had been 3 times longer/out of the way!
Great selection of fabrics, friendly, and brightly lit.
Laura, one of the owners, was very friendly,
and will ship by phone order-
(which you will want to do when you see the stash I got).
If you give them a call or visit, Tell them that I said HI!
I totally spent my b-day money all up :)
when I saw Rouenneries Duex by French General:
The entire line of
Blueberry Crumbcake by Blackbird Designs!
