This is the picture a reader asked about.
Here is the Puss in the Corner block that I used.
It’s a great scrap block which uses common size strips leftover from other projects.
Here are the three shops I visited last Friday.
I bought fabric at all shops but I bought the most from Sewing Seeds in New Ulm, MN. I have been in a lot of quilt shops over the past 40 years and I think this is the nicest one of them all! No kidding! Two levels of simply great fabric, nice displays, great models and the cleanest , tidiest shop I’ve ever visited. I’m not out to make points with any of them – nobody even knew who I was or who Country Threads was. One of the owners of Sewing Seeds had been to our shop many years ago however.
I told Connie she would love the Kim Diehl room – it had an old bedroom set on display with all the fabric. It honestly takes a lot to inspire me as much as this shop did. Why didn’t I take lots of pictures? Probably because Rick was waiting in the car. Here are a couple.
They were having a red, white and blue display in their classroom – I thought I had taken more pictures than I did.
This label was on every quilt – why didn’t we think of that????
Next we visited a thrift shop and bought books.
And that’s pretty much it – I had a great time!!!
