My husband and I took a trip to Indianapolis not too long ago for fun, and I wanted to visit a shop my sister told me about called "Quilting Quarters".
I found it, finally, and wow-what a store that was! It was fabulous! It had wall to wall fabric selection of every color and pattern you can think of, it was sorted from fancy, seasonal, colors and all kinds of things. I wasn't expecting such overwhelming choices!
Now, when I think of quilting, I think of old ladies or a group of pioneers sitting in a circle talking about all the juicy things that are going on in the community while they stitch pieces of old nightshirts, worn dresses, and things of that nature...(not that I wouldn't mind being in on that.. )
While quilting is not my thing, (I wouldn't know where to start), it does seem like it would be like putting a jigsaw puzzle together...and I hate doing jigsaws!
I was there at that store because I use fabric with very small prints on it since my characters are so small, and finding fabric that will work is no "small" task... pun intended of course. And they had plenty of fabrics that suited the bill, but I couldn't buy them all...
I did limit myself though to about 5 or so swatches to buy since I knew that I can only use so much and a quarter yard of any fabric goes quite a ways for me.
I could easily spend all day at a fabric store , especially if they have a wide range of things to look at. It's almost as good as going into a bakery...er, but maybe not quite!
