Main Street Quilt Cottage will have their open house next weekend- December 12th and 13th. The store is owned by 3 friends: Lynette Bingham, Wendy Lemmon and Sariah Mortensen.
Lynette Bingham is the daughter of Blanche Young, a local quilt celebrity. When I first moved here I kept hearing Blanche's name. She has published numerous books, does trunk shows, and is often the featured artist at quilt gatherings. Blanche is now 89, and has slowed down somewhat, but her daughters have continued to carry the torch in the quilting world.
One of Blanche's daughters, Helen Frost has published this book.
Lynette is in the process of making this design into a "Twilight" quilt. She will be featuring the books by Stephanie Meyers on the sides.
A fall version
We loved walking around the store and seeing some of the quilts on display. Lynette made this one for Hurricane's Peach Days. I especially loved the varigated colors in the border.
Louisa May Alcott books to highlight the fabric line.
How many women have said this before?
The borders on this Christmas quilt were done in wool. What a great idea!
