  1. Ohhhhhhh do I miss going to a fabric store! I’m working on a baby quilt right now, and first was so proud of myself for sticking with my stash, while rediscovering how truly eccentric my fabric choices were! ☹️ Now I’m facing the back, and binding, and really digging deep. A baby on the way is keeping me going though. Hopefully the baby won’t mind an unusual color scheme. I’ve got a few animals included to gladden the soul.

  2. Great post! I get such inspiration from our quilt shops. I always find something to add to my stash and often a different way of looking at my projects. Most of our shops are open for curbside pick up or mail order. I am making purchases in hopes they will be there when we are on the other side of this stay-at-home time.

  3. It’s funny, but I get the exact same feeling when I’m in an old book store or library.

    1. Me too! I miss both quilt shops and bookstores plus libraries

  4. I entirely agree Jacque! However it has been fun “shopping “ thru my stash! As I’m trying to pull together 2 senior quilts it has caused me angst but has challenged me to get creative!

  5. You are right on! Wondering thru fabric (and yarn) stores is nirvana!

  6. Nicely said. I’m right there with you.

  7. I’m with you Jacque, missing the experience of being in a favorite quilt store for the sheer joy of it.

  8. Can’t wait to visit Stitchin Post someday again. Missing the rush from fabric shopping as well.

We'd LOVE to hear from you! Please leave a comment below.
