Here are some pictures of the Quilt Merchant in Winfield, IL...what a fantastic shop...if you are in the area, or even if you have to drive a while to get there it is SO worth the trip. I can't even begin to tell you what a great shop this is. If you love reproduction fabrics, this is the shop for you. I ended up not being there as long as I would have liked, but the kids graciously took me there and waited for me. I think Josh was afraid that I'd take the wrong train. But you know even with limited time, I had a great time. Docia (the owner) and her daughter-in-law, Beth were just delightful...I felt like I had known them for years. Aren't quilters just the BEST?!
This last picture, because this is all Blogger would take from me this evening, is a kit I bought...I'll post the other kits and fabrics that I bought in the next post. This quilt was hanging behind the register area. Beth said they had just gotten it back from the quilter and I went nuts. It's a Bonnie Blue Quilts pattern called Vicksburg. I sheepishly asked if they had a kit and Beht said they had made some up and that I sure could have one...I did the dance. It is made with Judie Rothermel's new line Civil War Classics and it is just spectacular. I can't wait to get this one going.
I'll post the others later this evening...hmmmmmmm, 2 posts from me in one day :-)
