Yesterday I met two bloggers for shopping and lunch! One is "---Love" from I Just Love quilts and the other is Jennifer from Purple Hearts Ori"jenn"als. I had already met Love a couple other times and she suggested we all get together. We met at Lone Star House of Quilts in Arlington, TX. I have been attending the Jo's Little Women class there and I needed to get a few pieces of fabric for our assignment for Feb. & March. Love wanted to get some reproductions for the first time and, of course, Jennifer needed some fabric also. I hope you'll check out their web site and and facebook page. It's a great shop!
There is a huge magnolia tree in the front yard that I love.
Alice is the owner of the shop and they specialize in reproduction fabrics.
The entry into the shop: Above - to the left of the door; Below - straight ahead. Promises of things to come!
Another display below in the room where they keep Jo Morton fabrics.
Below is a quilt that Love brought to share with us. It was made in 1902 by her great-grandmother and is in really good shape! What a treasure!
After shopping, we went out to lunch and had a great time visiting and getting to know each other better.
Last, but not least, here is my Civil War block for the week. A nice easy one!
I forgot to mention in my last post that you can find a video demonstration of the blocks we made for donation quilts if you google "ten minute quilt block." I got my new quilting foot in the mail yesterday, so I'm planning to try quilting again. I hope that fixes the problem. Have a great week everyone!
