I'll show you my two favorites from today.
A Time To Sew is in Laguna Hills, and was purchased a few months ago by a very nice woman named Martha. She made us feel so welcome as we walked in the door.
The store is bright and cheery and had a very diverse selection of quilts.
Margaret loved this one.
Especially the contrast effect in the stars.
I went around and took picture after picture of many wonderful quilts. Notice how these all represent a very different style?
We've seen a lot of "3-D" quilts lately.
Being a thread person, I loved the couching in this quilt.
My other favorite shop of the day was "Quilter's Cottage" in Fallbrook, CA.
Owners Diane and Jan have done an amazing job with their store. And they had THE friendliest staff. (Thank you Mare for all your help). If you are anywhere near Fallbrook, put this quilt shop on your list of musts.
These are just a few of the samplings. I really had to use self control not to post every picture I took, because they were all wonderful.
A whole room was devoted to Children's quilts and clothing. Now that I have a grand daughter on the way, I wanted to buy every pattern they offered.
But I didn't. (Are you reading this Mr. Cactus?)
