Store closing in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin by Susan Laity Price
Sunday evening my husband realized that he had the day off on Monday. Since Monday was to be a bright sunny day he suggested we drive north to see some fall color. I immediately suggested Sun Prairie, Wisconsin since it had pretty scenery and three quilt shops. The fall leaves had not really...

Design wall report by Kathy Applebaum
I've been using my new design walls for a number of months now, so I figured it's time for a report. For those who don't know / remember, when we moved into our new house in January I got my own sewing room and I decided it was time for some real design space. Since DH keeps making noises about...

Quilt Shops by Betty in Wi
Last week, my DH and I took a drive through northern Minnesota.....to view the leaves, I guess. However, I found seven LQSs to drag my DH through. Fortunately many of these were in really old buildings and DH enjoyed looking at the architecture and musing about what the building had originally...

Any good four-fabric quilts? by monique
I actually went with 3 friends to an honest-to-goodness quilt shop on Saturday and we had a BLAST. It is such fun picking colors--not only fabric for my dear mom, but helping pick things for a friend's quilt and another friend's patchwork shirt. (I LOVE spending other people's money!) Two yards...

OTOTOTOT - Folgers Coffee by teleflora
Arghhhhhhh. I just got back from my local grocers and there was not a "can" of Folger's Coffee on the shelves. Only Maxwell House. I found a store guy and he said the Folgers coffee plant is down south, Mississippi or La, he wasn't clear. But he said it would probably be a month before they were...

At my local craft shop there is a little display of stuffed fabric applies. They are made with five or six pieces(like the ones used to cover styrofoam balls), then stuffed. Cinnamon stick inserted in the top forms the stem, and a little quilted leaf is attached. The pattern apparently was in an...

BOM Gallery by Sally Swindells
I always get a smile when I look at Teri's RCTQ BOM Gallery (apart from all the lovely blocks). There is an empty 'window' at the end which says 'No highlight, No content' - but it has been viewed 6 times! Obviously people are convinced that behind this apparently empty window there are...
