Stash Report: Cotton Creek Mill

Yesterday I told you about our visit to  Cotton Creek Mill Quilt Shop in West Branch Iowa….

When we visited I had been doing so good and not buying much at all and the next thing I knew, I had a bag full.  Oh my!


I had picked the orange batiks for my mystery quilt and they were long ago cut into.  I also picked this one…just because.


All of the rest of this happened….Cotton-Creek-Mill-STASH-2

and all of that happened because of this.It’s an ABC panel!!!  If you’re read the blog for any time, you know I am a sucker for ABC panels.


I think it’s the educator in me.

I love the prints because they are girly but not what I call “pink vomit”.  I know that’s not politically correct but I’m not a girly pink girl.  I kept thinking if Buck has a girl I want this for the baby quilt.  I had no idea what to do with it…but I could come up with something…right?

…and of course they had it in two color ways.  Of course I couldn’t decide.  Of course I had to get them both….and down the rabbit hole I went.


Can you believe that initially I walked past the display thinking, “Oh pretty colors” and walked on. Oh my.


So…for those of you asking about a baby quilt for the new little grand daughter, it will be out of this fabric.  I love it.

I have a strange feeling I’ll have left overs and will likely end up buying a layer cake or something before I’m all finished…looks like my rabbit hole just got larger…but I’m okay with that.  I’m going to love this quilt!

  1. Ha! I think we have all been “down the Rabbit Hole” more than once. I also love ABC panels and they make such fun quilts to give no matter the sex of the baby. I cant wait to see your creative creation. I love the purple batik that you picked up, I’m using them more and more with my civil war prints. What a fun trip.
