Quilting Cottage is located directly across from the public library in American Fork in a sweet old home. It was fun to browse the store and visit with old friends there. I ran into Janene (she gave us the fabulous lap boards at our quilt group) as she was shopping and Suzanne, who is my pal and runs the store.
The high ceilings in the main rooms lend themselves to hanging lovely ideas around the perimeter. Aren't these holiday mini quilts cute against the transoms?
This patchwork quilt looks great positioned over the decorative trim.
On the other side are bags and aprons. If you look closely you can see my "Mixed Bag" up there.
One quilt Shelbie and I were especially in love with is this flimsy made from new Moda fabric. It has a Japanese type feel to it and the colors are wonderful. Shelbie's trying to think of something fun to make with this line. (or have me make ;-))
This is my favorite corner of the store where my favorite fabrics are found and that dress quilt sure looks familiar!
More aprons and bags. You can see there is so much that catches your eye.
Here is Suzanne. Her grandson popped into the store to bring her a treat while we were there.
We thought this quilt was especially cute too. I love everything about it including the applique and center block. I really like that idea of bordering with strips of different fabrics.
Later this week I'll show you the fabric I bought for my bag lining and trim. I have to get a little more finished on it first.
Spring and St. Paddy's day tomorrow!
