My Favorite Quilt Shop

This is actually the name of the store... 'My Favorite Quilt Shop' and it also is my favorite!! Come on a virtual tour and see what I drooled over yesterday.There are WONDERFUL quilts draped all over the store. This is my favorite quilt. I want to wrap up in it. I love the colors and prints. I bought fat quarters of all the fabrics the last time I was in the shop... to make a purse.
This is another quilt that I saw for the first time yesterday. It reminds me of fall and I love the criss-cross strips of fabric and buttons.

I'm crazy about 'Jelly Rolls'.
I bought one for Christmas, but I can see a collection heading my way. They will definitely be on my birthday (November) wish list and my Christmas "Dear Santa..." list!! The shop carries a nice selection.

And there's an Amy Butler corner.
The wooden box on the top is empty because I bought all the fat quarters.

Kaffe Fassett... my very favorite designer!
I love this quilt with so many of his beautiful fabrics in it.
And look at this for cleverness.
The photo of Kaffe below is matted in his fabric.

This is the Kaffe fabric corner. I actually cut out some of the fabric by mistake.
It's the area in the shop that I always head first.

I bought fabric to make pillowcases for our bed and Halloween fabric to make a pair of cases
for each of the girls.
I'll try and post them tomorrow.
Jana the owner, took me step by step through the construction. Each case has 3 fabrics.

What a lovely shop! I laughed about the empty Amy Butler box! I'm just discovering her fabrics - they look lovely and very different from my usual style. Have fun sewing. Lucy x

Enjoy!!! Can't wait to see the pics!
