Last week I visited a new quilt store (new to me) about 30 miles from here. It is called Keep Me In Stitches. It was stocked with batiks and lots of novelty prints. The colors were so bright and it had a really upbeat feel to it. One of the women working there I had met about a year ago at a quilt show.
I found some cute charm squares with sock monkeys and bananas. Plus some beautiful navy batiks. They had a great quilt on display using the navy batiks with solid white in a churn dash pattern. It was so pretty. I can see making that.
As I was checking out, the store owner told me that another new quilt store called Going to Pieces had just opened a few block away. She gave me directions and even drew me a map. How nice is that?! Unfortunately I did not have the time to go then, but that just means another trip. Both are close to Primitive Gatherings - another of my favorite stores.
