Quilts Etc.

While I was visiting in Salt Lake last weekend I went into Quilts, Etc. with my girlfriend Pam. She does their Block of the Month the first Saturday every of every month at 7:30am. Quilts, Etc. has so many people taking their BOM that they schedule classes all day Saturday, and extend on into Monday and Tuesday. A very popular program that has been going on for years. I used to take this class every year when I lived in the area and I miss being part of the fun.

I purchased the pattern "Bewitching" by The Quilted Fish, a local Utah designer.
Amanda Herring doesn't have a web site, but she does have a blog where you can order her patterns.

She said she didn't use any Halloween fabrics in this quilt.

I love the spider web quilting and especially the funky buttons on the hats. I purchased some buttons while I was there, although I may mix them with some Halloween covered buttons too.

There were some fun quilts around the store.

Isn't this a fun border?

They were out of this pattern, but it sure made me think of the teapot exchange.
A lovely quilt poem.
Pat is the owner of Quilts, Etc. and does a great job with the block of the month. The blocks this year are centered around a country. Pat gives the history of the country and gives little know facts about the area.
Then it was time for show and tell from the audience.
A wedding quilt for the presenter who was getting married in a week.
This was from a free pattern that Quilts gave out the month before.
I always enjoy going into Quilts, etc. and try and drop by as often as I can when I am in town.

That must have been super fun to go and share with friends that you have done projects with before. The quilt shop looks so fun--I am so excited for our upcoming shop hop so that I can take in a variety of quilt shops charms. Have a great week!

I love Quilts, Etc. It was the first shop I ever visited up there! It was almost overwhelming the amount of fabric they had!

Bewitching is such a cute quilt and I really enjoyed show and tell.

Quilts Etc is a great little quilt store, actually an unusual one that takes up two stores. I enjoy going in there.

You won't believe how close we were to running into each other. How funny! I was there on Saturday with my friend Nanette. We got there sometime before 12 noon and we were there for at least an hour and a half. I'm sooo sorry I missed seeing you! I was looking at the pictures thinking these quilts look familiar and then as I was reading I realized, hey, I was there!!!!

Kim said...

I wrote Nanette but I meant Rae Ann. I've been conversing with Nanette today too! It's late and I'm a little tired. I was up reading until 3am last night. I should go to bed now. Yawn! zzzzzz!

Quilts etc is amazing - I have never seen so much fabric in one place!!!

I could seriously stop what I'm doing this moment and run to Quilts to make some of those projects. They are all really wonderful. I don't get up there enough.

Thanks so much for posting the picture of my Bewitching quilt! I hope you enjoy making it. Let me know if you have any questions!
