I told you that after we picked up Rosie that we were on a mission to stop at the Forest Mills Quilt Shop. I was hoping to pick up a couple of pieces of fabric for the mystery quilt. I was still a little bit short on dark blue and aqua.
Diane and Carolyn the gals are big into animals so we brought Rosie for them to meet. Rosie did a good job and spent most of her time hanging with Georgia. Here she is giving her five.
I had hoped to snap picture and give you a shop tour but with Rosie and Georgia there it was too hard. I did snap a couple pictures of some great things they had in the shop. If you’re thinking of our Be Bold quilt, they have the kit!! I love the colors. Diane opted to put borders on her version.
Here is our version. Read about it HERE. The kit they have doesn’t include borders.
I apologize over and over about this picture. But this panel they just got in was amazing!! Close up, it looks like I can see brush strokes of a paintbrush. The gals said that people have been mounting the panel on a canvas and then decopoging them. They said then it REALLY looks like a painting as you can see the canvas texture too. I loved the panel. They also had one of a longhorn. SO COOL.
The gals always specialize in all things farm related. If you want tractor fabric, they have it!
They had this panel too…and I bought it. I have a family expecting a baby that will be coming to childcare and the mom is a farmer. I thought if they have a girl, this will be perfect. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do with it, but something fun.
They also had this panel that I bought. I loved it too.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted it for the baby quilt too.
..and then Kelli wanted some of this for a bag….I thought I better get some too..you know, if I wanted it for the baby quilt.
…and we both loved this so we got it too.Who knows what we’re making with it….we just wanted it…we’re a sucker for all things farm.
Oh..and what I came for…the batiks for the mystery.
As long as I had fabric out on the floor, I did a little photography training with Rosie. I had to have a leash on her but she did pretty good.
I snapped 7 pictures. A couple were terrible as she wouldn’t sit still but this last one, it turned out great!!
