I always wondered if making quilts would be as fun as garments and after making the cutie pie little baby blanket, my thoughts are that yes it would. No fit issues or wearibility problems makes for a successful project w/out issues, right?
Well, I picked up a copy of the Better Homes and Gardens quilters special magazine (or some such mag) after buying the little quilted projects book just for kicks. They had a whole section showing cool quilt shops all over the country. Low and behold the most beautiful one, is right down the road from me in West Linn, OR: Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe & Mercantile, 1914 Willamette Falls Drive, 97068.
So, on my last half day Friday last week, I took myself down there, fighting the Oregon State Fair traffic on I5 all the way but it was totally worth it. Here's a link to their blog and a shop "tour" with pictures. I think it really shows the amazing selection and displays of fabrics and quilts. I pasted in a few images so you can see. You would have to be totally blind to have trouble coordinating fabrics for a project in here. See....
Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe & Mercantile online. So see, you can shop here with out moving here, because as I've stated, we are full. Cheerio!
