Summer Plans

My trip to Illinois last week included three awesome quilt shop stops. The first was Piece and Applique in Springfield, IL. The shop is filled with a huge variety of the latest fabrics, including lots of Moda!
We also stopped at Robert's Sewing Center in Joliet, IL. This shop is worth the trip just for the ongoing quilt show! The second story balcony is draped with quilts and makes for a spectacular presentation.

The shop is filled with numerous collections and lots of pre cuts. Worth the trip! We also stopped at The Fabric Center in Morris, IL. (I forgot to take pictures) but also a beautiful shop filled with friendly people.

I did a lecture and a workshop for the fun ladies in the Illinois Valley Quilt Guild. One of the highlights of the trip was this guy, who decided to stand in the parking lot behind my car after dinner. We don't see this too often in St. Louis!

The workshop resulted in some adorable tulip blocks. Great job!!

My summer calendar looks much quieter and I think some major sewing is in my future. St Louis is a stay-in-doors town in the Summer. 97 degrees today! I have a list of projects, new fabric and I'm ready to stitch. Here's one of the patterns I picked up on my trip.
Coming this Summer: more quilts!
