Temecula Quilt Co. Had Company!

After leaving the Quilter’s Coop we stopped off at the Temecula Quilt Co. just a short drive away.  If you follow the Temecula Quilt Co. Blog then you probably recognize this door and the bird house…

Does this quilt look familiar?  That’s because it was in the Quilt Sampler Magazine just a short while ago! It is even more amazing in ‘real life’!  Much bigger and gorgeous!!  I want to make it now!  I can see why this shop was featured in their magazine as it is beautiful!

This is what the shop looks like as you go through the front doors.

The lady behind the counter was very friendly and helpful.

The thing that made this shop unique was all the little wonderful displays and special touches.  Like this sweet little quilt on a child’s easel.

I love the lunch bucket on the second shelf…appliquéd wool bird on a vine with berries… got to love it!!

P1050488

Even their Bulletin Board, announcing their classes, is done up with button magnets and different lettering…love these touches

I LOVE this snowman quilt…but they were sold out of the mottled white fabric!!  Isn’t it cute?  And the words “Oh the weather outside is frightful but the weather insides delightful…etc…” is stitched in the white inside border.  Adorable!!

Look at these little balls of Valdani Pearl Cotton in the antique Mason Jars!  How does the owner think of these displays!!  Love it! P1050502 P1050503

Of course I had to buy some wool and I really want to try this thread…

P1050645 If you are ever in Temecula make sure you visit both of these quilt shops!  Wow!!  They are definitely worth the drive!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Quilting!

They have great classes too!

I love their shop and the displays, really nice way of showing off the products. I know I could never go in there, and not leave with a bag full of goodies;)

Wow, what an adorable shop. Gives me lots of ideas. I also like to incorporate antiques in my quilt shop. I absolutely love the bulletin board, I will have to try that!!! Thanks for sharing.
May all your stitches be a blessing,

Your posts are better than going to a travel agent. If I was planning a trip, where would I go? Definitely to some of the shops on your blog. But I would have to find some other items of interest nearby to entice my husband that way as well.
If you have time have a look at Jenny of Elefantz blog. I am a published quilter!
Take care.

what a lovely store! thanks for sharing, Your travels really make my day, lovely autumnal colouring in your new wool purchases, love it!

Jennifer said...

Thanks for sharing your quilt show travels....I may never get to that part of the world, so I am enjoying it immensely!

Paulette, you're killing me with all these photos! But I love it. Show us more.

The Valdani cotton is all I use when I stitch my wool. It doesn't fray and is much stronger that the regular floss. I just love the variegated Valdanis. They're my favorites.

Jeanette said...

Thank you so much for the pictures! I agree, their displays are amazing. I follow their blog, too,and think they do a great job choosing fabric for their quilts. I also love the snowman quilt. The designer also had a gingerbread quilt that was so cute. I love the Valdani thread, but am thinking I'm going to need more colors... ;-)

You are having way too much fun without me. I LOVE that snowman quilt!

Oh Paulette, thanks for taking me shopping with you today! Amazing store that I would love to visit! That wool looks wonderful! Have fun in the sun!

There are so many beautiful small things in that shop, I love how she rolls the little quilts up and ties a ribbon around them.
