Hey, it's a good day to have a GOOD DAY...and I can't think of a better way to start it off then by providing you with some eye candy! While in Seattle I was ecstatic to go to a QUILT SHOP and what a nice shop it was! It's called 'Gathering Fabric' and was located in wine country...which means you can drop hubby off to sample the vine, while you make a bee-line...right to this shop!
I also loved this umbrella quilt! I know that Edyta Sitar has an umbrella quilt put out by Accquilt GO! but I didn't check to see if this was it...Seeing it in 'real life' has inspired me to want to make this one!
Whenever I see a 'Farm Girl Vintage Quilt' it makes me happy to know that I own this book! I love so many of these blocks...like the cherries and the lamb and the chick and the spools...
This would be a wonderful quilt to make too!
There were a couple of sales happening...these two tables were half price tables...
I managed to find a couple of low volume FQs to take home...
This shop is part of the 'ROW BY ROW' program that so many shops are offering now. The whale row was last years ROW and the tulips are this years.
So did I walk away with bags and bags of 'stuff'...nope! I hate to say it but we Canadians have to add at least 25% onto every purchase (our dollar is still low...sigh...) and with fabric at $13.99-$17.00 I could buy it WAY cheaper in Canada! I was frankly floored that their fabric was so much! Threads and notions, charm packs and FQ were the same price as what our shops sell them for. No deals to be had...but I did buy a couple of patterns and it's ALWAYS fun to look!
I hope you liked the eye candy this morning! 'Gathering Fabric' is a wonderful shop and well worth the drive out...There are lots of lovely shops in this area with plenty to keep hubby/kids busy... The area is called Woodinville (Washington) which was a short drive from Seattle and is located in the beautiful Sammamish Valley!
Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Stitching!~P
