The Shopping Part...

In 5 days we hit 7 quilt shops. Two of my favorites were new to all of us.

Quilter's Compass in Monticello, Wisconsin was an adorable shop that has been open only 10 months. Filled with the latest modern and traditional fabrics, we had a ball trying to decide what to go home with. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera to show you pictures of the shop, but it was darling. The owner and her daughter were as nice as can be and they do mail order fabric if you find something in their on-line shop!

Here are my goodies: Cloud 9 Organic cotton "Happy Garden".
And I was so thrilled to find this. "Free to Grow" is another organic cotton line that I didn't buy when it came out last Fall and I kind of regretted that!
The second shop that we all just loved was Tammy Tadd in Sycamore, Illinois. The shop has beautiful fabric, but the displays were pure eye candy. Pink was the theme and if you look close you can see a pink Weber grill on the right side of this display.
A wonderful selection of 30's reproductions.
This had to be my favorite - the pink bike!
Just an adorable shop!!!


  1. How fun! That Happy Garden line is really cute!

  2. The little sandpiper is adorable! Love the color palates of both collections.
