Field Trip!

My guild took a field trip to Threads Run Through It a new quilt store in Phenix, Virginia.  Wow!  What a place and what a welcome for 15 ladies from the guild who traveled the back roads to get to it. 

A great front porch where the non-quilter can sit, rock and view the beautiful countryside. 

Two quilts are shown on the porch. 

Then you step into the store and wow!  It's beautiful and that's not even looking at the fabrics and quilts! 

We shopped our hearts out.  And then they served us a light lunch! 

 Some were finishing up their purchases . . . 

 And some lovely quilts to look at while eating. 

What would this look like in purples... 

And, wait, I have this pattern ... hummmm I may need to make one of these.  It's a 5 yard quilt. 

And here's the wonderful fabric I got while I was there... yep I went a little wild.  Fat quarters were $1.50, $5 1 yard pieces, and some at 50% off.  I bought mostly fat quarters but a few yard pieces and one 4 yard piece.  

Afterward we went to another shop and I did some more damage -- 40% off there.  I now have enough white on whites to last for quite a while.  And, I have a couple of pieces I can use for backings for smaller lap quilts. 
Surely I have enough fabric for a while!  Oh but what fun it was to go on this field trip!  Who knows what I'll use all of this fabric for but I love it all.   Stay tuned to see quilts from these great fabrics!  

Happy Quilting All!

  1. Sound like a very friendly shop. I always love to see a lot of quilts on display: they motivate me.

    Great price on FQs.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
