Many of the bolts are threaded onto "arms" lengthwise and you can scroll the collection on two long walls but flipping through the bolts. Much like decorative rugs are hung in specialty shops, I have not seen this in a quilt shop before.
|One yard of this cute fabric came home with me. I am not sure where it will be used but it is cute, yes?|
It was my intention to browse and choose maybe one little bundle of fat quarters to add to the stash for a future project. Well, we all know how that goes.
This cute little apple print is destined to be an apron. Perfect for Fall Apple Harvest Season!
This was such a pretty bundle with the colors I was looking for. I haven't taken it apart yet so maker etc. is unknown at this time.
There were a couple opportunities that left me waiting and pondering the Bait. It is not that I haven't realized this in the past but for some reason it really hit home this time. A light bulb moment. I felt a little hood winked.

- There is so much beautiful fabric out there, it is so much fun to explore different shops. I am becoming a bit more critical of shops these days. They charge premium prices. They need to at least smile or say hello, not stare at you like you have a big horn growing out out the middle of your head. Just saying. This one was OK.
- I like fabric bundles, I like the pre-chosen combinations, particularly when I am in a little hurry.
- There were many fabric bolts that I did not look at or price so the price range may have been much better than I realized.
- This is a little odd but somewhere in that shop there was a dead mouse. I have a sniffer like a dog and know that scent anywhere. I have a barn, the little buggers hide there. I know the scent. It is impossible for me to believe that the owner and worker were not aware of this, steps should have been taken. Find it, do something. Please.
- I strongly believe that the best shops display samples, not much in this one. Bring your own imagination.
