When my hubby announce that our fuel was getting low and that we were going to stop in Springfield, Oregon, my whooop of excitement could mean only ONE THING…a Quilt Shop was nearby….!
And what a quilt shop it was!! It was ‘Something to Crow About’ for sure…yup, that’s the name of it! Cute…eh? Wait till you see the pictures…
It had just snowed in Springfield (just south of Eugene, OR) so the roads weren’t that great…in fact they declared it a SNOWDAY and school was out! Anyway…I had 15 minutes to peruse the shop…which is usually plenty of time…
Love the huge quilt patch on the side of the building…that’s because the shop is tucked into a little courtyard and might be overlooked…
VERY cute window display!
Me standing in the doorway…WOW!! I need more time…
It’s not possible to ‘do’ this shop in an hour let alone 15 minutes!!
But what’s a girl to do…I did my best…and quickly, in a timely fashion..
LOVED this Jan Patek snowman quilt!!
And tons of wool projects…EVERYWHERE I looked!! Breath…just breath!
See what I mean…
Here’s Bonnie Sullivan’s new BOM…this is block one of Bertie’s Year…the shop is doing it as a class. Dang sweet…much cuter in real life, for sure!
It’s worthy of a close-up!!
This pumpkin quilt is from Primitive Quilts Magazine…adorable!!
This quilt is also being offered as a class at the shop…beautiful!
They had a flannel and homespun ROOM!!
Other classes for the Intermediate quilters…And LOOK at that quilt in the middle!! Primitive Gatherings Summer Freebie!! It’s SEW small…
Also being taught as a class is Snowman Gatherings!~ So beautiful in real life!
See the framed stocking…the pattern is in the new Winter Quiltmania Magazine!!
The smallest churn dash quilt EVER…with teeny tiny flowers embroidered in the center!! Ahhhhdorable!
Loved the pillows!!
Told ya’… totally adorable!
And this brown and blue quilt is stunning!! Man…I didn’t even notice the red and white one beside it!!
And this tree quilt was STUNNING!! WHY didn’t I buy the pattern?!!
These mats were so precious and would make wonderful gifts!
I thought I’d end with this quilt…isn’t it the sweetest? I would love to have this hanging in my house…ummm… I mean trailer…!! :o)
Yup…this shop is ‘Something to Crow About’ all right!! The quilters who live around Eugene and Springfield are VERY lucky indeed!!
Day two down…sew it’s onwards…and upwards…as in Mountain Passes today…the Siskiyou Pass awaits! So far the I-5 Freeway has been bare and dry…fingers crossed that it remains that way!
Hope you enjoyed the shop!! It’s a good one to circle on your map and it was easy to find!!
