I love Quilt shops

When my daughters and my SIL and I went to the States, I was so looking forward to shopping at some quilt shops.
I know there were 2 on the drive up. But I didn't know about this little treasure.
I should have got a photo of the whole building. It was cute and had a porch on the side. Inside was just loaded with quilts, fabric and patterns. They even had quilts hanging on the ceiling. The staff was so helpful and friendly. I purchased a Fall wall hanging panel from here. Can't wait to go back.
I missed one of my quilt shops I wanted to check out. Sharon was driving and drove right on past it. I guess she forgot it was there.
I did get to my second quilt shop though. I just love quilt shops they are so cozy. I also purchased a wall hanging panel for there. It was a Halloween theme.

I also found this adorable little guy. They didn't have a pattern for it, but they let me take a picture of him. Since I love figuring out how to make things on my own, I can't wait to try to create him. He is a Santa Bag.
Not sure what you would use him for? Maybe for your Christmas cards or maybe to hold candy canes or my Snowman soup packages I make for guests.
I was going to share the panels that I purchased but I can't find them. My home has been turned upside down these last couple weeks.
Today I went and totally finished cleaning up and out my dad's apartment. I handed in the keys. I also talked to the landlord again, and he said he will write out the check on Monday.

My SIL Sharon and I went out for lunch today. We went to Kelsey's. I had the shrimp Alfredo, not the best.

Hope you had a wonderful Monday



  1. how cute, i used to sell quilts on ebay... btw, was it you that told me you could do reverse email lookups? was this the site you were talking about??? i was going to it and it was not showing up...

  2. How cute! I love the siding on the quilt shop. I love them too. I like to walk around and touch all the fabric and ooh and ahh over the quilts.

    My grandma was a quilter and so I literally have like 8-9 of her quilts. I use them daily!

  3. I bet the quilt shops are fab, we don't have anything like it here. Santa looks great hope you figure him out and show us if you do.
    Happy crafting
