Now that we had a little extra time, it seemed like a good idea to visit a couple quilt shops! I looked up American Patchwork & Quilting's website to search for a few shops. I came up with a list and also got some suggestions from Jennifer, who commented on my last post. Thanks, Jennifer! I did stop at Quilters' Corner in Deer Lodge, MT. The owner has the shop packed with all kinds of tempting things and said that she does a big on-line business.
The next day we were in Bozeman, MT and we were too early for one of the shops, so continued on to Reproduction Fabrics.Com. I didn't know if they had a store front or if they would be open. It was located in an office building. The sign on the door said the hours were 12 to 3 PM. But there was a phone number to call Margo for an appointment. I decided I might as well call. She told me she was on her way over and would be there in a couple minutes. Yea! Margo Krager is a font of information and even provided me with hand-outs containing information on reproduction fabrics, quilt styles, etc. This is what I bought.
I also got these fabric reproduced labels. I'm going to put these on some bags.
Yesterday we found a camping site rather early in the day, so I was able to do some sewing. I made the latest Civil War block and did some other piecing.
Today we plan to go to Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument.
