...and modern quilts among the 30 that I presented to the nighttime guild. As always, I found that quilters everywhere are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. (I promise, I wasn't frowning throughout the entire evening!?)
Friday morning, eight ladies joined me on a rainy day for a fun workshop learning to make improvisationally pieced crosses. They all seemed to enjoy the freedom of working without a pattern and, by the end of the afternoon, were well on their way to a finished Modern Cross project! Here they are showing off their favorite blocks. (Hi ladies!)
The next morning found me entering "The Rabbit's Lair" into my IPhone for directions as my husband and I turned the car toward Rogers, Arkansas.
Hubby was as excited to find this museum right around the corner from the quilt shop! We had agreed on a 30 minute visit to both places, but I was soon texting him that I'd be there for a while longer!
Entering the store was like a step back in time with the original floor, display cases and decor. Besides a wide variety of quilting supplies, there were knitting and crochet yarns to tempt.
Upstairs, I found wool, more fabric and a spacious classroom. Isn't the tin "lid" (in the upper right) on the stairs fascinating? You can also glimpse a bit of the gorgeous tin ceiling, just to the left of the stairway, in this picture.
Another shopper (on vacation from Texas) and I decided that these Amy Butler layer cakes, for $14 each, were a real bargain. I could say that she talked me into buying them but that wouldn't be the truth. I also purchased a charm pack of Tangier Ikat...
and a new little ruler that I'm excited to try out. Do you think that all of my points will match now that I have this? Don't hold your breath!
I just love finding a new quilt shop to love, don't you!
