The Calico Horse Quilt Shop

Seattle Judy needed some background Civil War Fabric to finish off her quilt and wanted to know if I wanted to go to the Calico Horse in Redlands…!!  Does a dog have fleas?  Is the Pope Catholic?  Is our house on wheel?  YES!!!

Now this Quilt Shop is in my top three list…LOVE this shop!!  It’s about a 35 minute drive down the Freeway towards LA.  So last Friday, Judy, myself and Chris, another Civil War Fabric lover, tootled off down the freeway!

Here’s Chris and Judy…I’m taking the picture…see the reflection..

We had a wonderful time…ending the day at Starbuck’s!  There’s nothing like having a cup of coffee with quilting friends …to discuss quilts, projects and of course…all of our great buys!  SEW exciting!!

Have a Super Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P
