I was greeted by this sign…a definite sign of GOOD THINGS to come!!
This quilt BLEW me away!! Loved the fabric and I wasn’t surprised when they said that they were sold out of it! I kick myself for not asking the name of the line of fabric though! The pattern was in a modern book.
In many ways, exploring this shop is like going to a Quilt Show…Quilts EVERYWHERE…with patterns and fabric available (most of the time)!
They are having a workshop on this Norma Whaley pattern called ‘Navajo Code Talkers’…gorgeous blocks…love the way the wee blocks are intersperse amongst the homespun!
And these blocks are for another workshop on applique…looked like the starch and turn method and let me tell you, the turns were perfect!
You can tell that this is one BUSY QS…their workshop area is a feast for the eye…lots happening here!
As I stood in the classroom, I HAD to take a picture of the whole shop..small but VERY IMPRESSIVE!! Tons of wonderful fabrics and tons of samples!
I am ‘fairly sure’ that I have this pattern! So sweet! Don’t you HATE it when you aren’t positive…geeze…I sure hope this isn’t a sign of things to come?!
This quilt was so pretty…like falling poinsettia leaves~
I bought the bundle of fabrics to make this quilt but the pattern was sold out. At half price it was a steal!
I love STARS…and this one was made out of knives…Of course I looked to see how it was made…there were no drill marks that I could see, so it must be glued together! Very effective!!
I love that red, green and gold quilt!!
I enjoyed seeing this Christmas Wool work…I think the pattern was in the last issue of Primitive Quilts Magazine…or Quiltmania? Regardless…LOVE IT!! And look at that WEE little log cabin on the right…didn’t even notice it when I was in the shop! Looks like I have to go back!! haha
This is another one that is in one of ‘those’ magazines!! Dang cute!
And of course there are lots of examples of Primitive Gathering patterns! Lovely!
A Cheri Payne pattern…that is wonderful made up!
And I LOVED seeing ‘Summertime’ by PG…I have the blocks all stitched, WHY haven’t I finished this one? Maybe this is the push that I need!!
This is another PG pattern…I have those baskets and flowers all traced onto Heat and Bond Lite…ready and waiting…at home! I LOVE the setting that the shop used! You notice the baskets more in this version!
So…there you have it! Now wasn’t that a wonderful shop…packed full of quilting goodness! And no, that wasn’t a question…it’s pure FACT!
Grand Country Quilters has a blog which you can find HERE and from there you can go to their ON LINE SHOP!! Have fun! ;o)
A lot of you were asking about the ‘LOOT’…well, like all good stories you have to have a cliff hanger…come back tomorrow and see how the story ends!
Have a Marvellous Monday and Happy Quilting!~P
