What Type of Fabrics for Quilting Left Sophie's Heart Pounding?

July 5, 2012    Sophie and Barb have just finished lunch and are ready to hit the five quilt shops left of the "Shop Hop". What a relaxing and tasty lunch with Barb.  We sat outside under an umbrella, on a beautiful sunny day, and talked about our lives up to this point and what "A Great Habit" our quilting is turning into.  Now to finish up the "Shop Hop" with the final five shops. The next shop was about ten miles up the road.  I keep thinking to myself how different each one of the shops have been so far.  Well, this shop was very small and carried alot of the same fabrics for quilting that I had seen at the previous shops.  We did take a few minutes to look around for that special find, but nothing stood out.  So onto number seven. When we pulled up to shop number seven, it was a very plain building, with just a rustic welcome sign outside.  When we walked in I wasn't expecting to see the type of store it was.  All I could say was "OH MY"!  This store was one of the styles I really like...Primitive!  The fabrics for quilting were the dark and rustic colors, no brights and wild fabric in this store. Results of Sophie's "out of control buying" at the Primitive Shop! The quilts were displayed on beds with headboards made out of reclaimed barn boards.  Old wooden tables, displayed kits and patterns for the quilts that were displayed on the beds and walls.  My heart was pounding for I love the look of primitive and everywhere I looked was something I wanted.   We then came into a room where they sold wool.  They had many little table runners, Christmas ornaments, quilts and many other things to make out of wool.  They had a kit for a table topper with 2 sheep that were red and white striped, another sheep was blue with white stars.  I grabbed the pattern and kit...a must to make for the 4th of July. We spent WAY too much time and money in this shop, I could not control myself...the fabrics for quilting and the wool were screaming "BUY ME"!!!!!
