The little sweetwater basket was on sale in the museum gift shop for just $7.00. I plan to put it to future use in the sewing room, for little blocks. The box here and the fabrics all came from The Quilt Merchant in Winfield, Illinois, one of our stops along the way. Vicki took pictures of the shop, and the many samples there. She will be posting about this in a few days.
The last two pieces that are identical prints are from a new line from Blue Hill Fabrics, a recent manufacturer of quilt cottons. This print also came in a deep blue. The designer of this particular line is the daughter-in-law of the owner of The Quilt Merchant. She also designs many of the quilts shown in the shop. Just wait until you see them! What a teaser, right?!
