This week I was lucky enough to visit the state of Arizona. It was a fun trip, we were gone 5 days and two of those were for travel. During this short and sweet vacay I was lucky enough to visit a fabulous quilt shop in Sedona, Arizona. Let me tell you all about it, OK?
We were staying in Flagstaff so it was a short drive to visit Sedona. The area around this town is full of breath taking scenery, what a job Mother Nature did here. But the downtown was pretty touristy - fudge shops, t-shirt shops and the like.
Our destination was in the business area of the town and as we drove along I spotted this sign for Quilter's Store and Gallery. My husband wasn't sure I was right because the outside looks like a lovely home. Thank goodness for signs!
As I entered the owner immediately invited me to visit the gallery which is located directly behind the shop. We'd been driving for a bit so I demurred, asking for the ladies room. You can always count on a quilt shop to have wonderful facilities and this darling store did not disappoint.
The gallery had one quilt which really appealed to me and many other delightful treasures. I did not take any pictures in there as it was all the work of fabric artists whose permission I did not seek for photography. After savoring this area, I returned to the main event - fabric!
I got three gorgeous greens, 2 yards each for our bed. I want to redo that king sized quilt but as long as I keep buying fabrics, I don't have to start, yes?
There were also these darling fabrics with a panel, that I did not get, and companion fabrics. I purchased two of those because they begged me to and their coloring theme was not to be denied.
My final selection was three yards of an orange fabric called Petals. I am having book club here this Sunday, a couple of days from now. This fabric would make great napkins and I hope to get them done.
I posed outside with all my goodies. I just was completely thrilled with every fabric I chose. I even spread them out for a final picture of my visit.
All in all, what heck of a haul, wouldn't you agree? I felt like I was restrained in my purchasing as we had flown and my suitcase was very full with clothes. Lucky for me, my husband had anticipated this would happen and had left extra room in his suitcase.
Isn't he the best? Although had I known, I might have bought more!
