August has been a busy work travel month for me. The last two trips offered some quilt related 'off hours' activity. I visited two quilts shops in the Atlanta area - Sweet Home Quilt Co. and Little Quilts. Both shops graciously allowed pictures for blog posting.
Sweet Home Quilt Co. (Hi, Melisa!) - I don't think you'll find a more inviting quilt shop. Wouldn't you love to 'sit and stitch' on this porch? The shop displays are charming - great tumbler quilt!
Little Quilts specializes in reproductions and is 'filled to the brim' with samples.
My trip to New Jersey last week was quite exciting - two major Mother Nature events! The earthquake was a unique workshop distraction (including swinging window blinds). I delayed my flight out until Saturday to take in the Maine quilt exhibit at the Lowell Quilt Museum. Couldn't get much closer to Irene impact - I was on the last United flight leaving Hartford, CT last night - the Indiana sunshine is looking mighty fine today! No quilt pictures allowed at the exhibit, but lots of scribbled notes taken. I think there might be a crib and doll quilt added to my list. Wouldn't this be the perfect quilt shop - only a block from the museum!
So, with all the travel this month, not much sewing going on. But, Labor Day weekend plans have changed and I'm planning on a sewing retreat! Looking back at last year's post, this is a welcomed repeat. Anybody interested in joining me? If you've read to the end of this travelogue and you want to sew-along, send me an email and I'll post progress over the weekend. If not, I'll sew alone - off to do some planning!
