We were greeted by the beautiful orange/peach roses over the fence in the adjoining yard. Quilts was celebrating The Super Bowl for there theme.
So they rolled out the green to welcome the Shop Hop guests to their store.
The wonderful Sandra was on the phone when we got there. Sandra is in charge of the vintage Clothesline Club Tuesday meetings that Lori and RaeAnn go to there.
They had a quilt by Kari and her book displayed front and center.
I'm always attracted to the reproduction fabrics. So cute.I thought this flag quilt was really beautiful. It is simple yet elegant.
We had a great time at Quilts and the ladies were so friendly. They were even serving hot dogs in the parking lot like a tail gait party. But Lori and I were on a mission to get to the next store so we pushed forward.
Next we went to Pine Needles located in Gardner Village in southwest SLC. If you visit the Salt Lake County area you must come to Gardner Village. The quaint shops made in vintage cottages are really fun. There is a little pond and a great restaurant.There was so much to look at in Pine Needles. Wendy and the girls have been really busy getting ready. Of course the aprons caught my eye. Isn't this an incredible basket quilt.They had a really great line of Christmas fabric displayed and Lori and I snagged a few fat quarters from the display that will coordinate with Monica's Happy Holiday line when it is delivered to me Monday. Isn't that teacup cute. They got it at Hobby Lobby. Hmmm. I want that.And of course I can't keep away from the Lecien displays at the stores. I do have this fabric so I wasn't tempted to buy, mostly. But it is wonderful to look at.Every inch of the store contained things I would want to make.Isn't this quilt wonderful. I love it, of course. It has little girls clothes. It is just made so well and such a sweet design.This corner caught both Lori's and my eye. Isn't that quilt with the rick rack compelling. The pinwheel in the middle of the block makes the design really special. And the rick rack finishes it off so well.This is a great layer cake design in this quilt. Lori picked up the pattern to use with her Moda layer cakes. It looks like a fun quilt.
Well that does it for Lori and me on the Shop Hop yesterday. Tomorrow after work I go alone to a couple more stores. I would like to get to Piper's in Sugar House too (maybe Saturday). I think the local stores are some of the best quilt stores in the nation. They really outdo themselves at Shop Hop time.
