When we were out and about Hubby let me stop at not one but TWO quilt shops. This tour is of “Crazy to Quilt” in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
I am on a wool kick lately so I headed back to the wool section first.
I just love samples so I had to take these all in.
I love anything farm so this caught my eye too.
Oh…projects with sayings always get me too…if they are about home, they especially get me.
I was surprised by these pillows. Typically I don’t see these bright colors used in wool projects….So what do you think of these pillows?
The have a “modern” feel to them. Who knew wool could be “modern”??
These monthly wall hangings are something I have thought about doing for a long time but haven’t caved to the pressure…yet.
I smiled when I saw this pattern on display. It’s from a fellow blogger, Cluck, Cluck Sew.
..and some great looking modern samples.
…more great samples…
Of course I had to snap these two pictures of Lori Smith projects….remember Lori is the designer of our Quilt Square patterns.
As I left the shop I couldn’t help but smile at this pattern for these cute little quilt labels….they are paper pieced and now that I can paper piece and don’t hate it doing it…I could have bought them, but I didn’t. We had plans to go antiquing and I needed to save my money.
I am guessing that the shop does quite a lot of machine quilting for people. Just during the 20 minutes or so that I was in the shop, two people brought in a total of four quilts!!
All in all, Crazy to Quilt is a nice little shop that is worth the stop if you are in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
