I revealed that I had found a nifty new store in Seattle in my last post. It was pretty obvious that I had encountered a new Quilt store but I needed a whole post to brag about it so I waited for the next installment of my trip to the Pacific Northwest. In our explorations of Seattle we came upon a cute and cozy store that I had to enter. Wow! Undercover Quilts is a stupendous quilt store in Seattle, WA.
Doesn't the doorway just look inviting, like you are just about to enter a hidden treasure trove. We had just ascended a hill so it looked even more enticing. I have to admit, however, that the front window really piqued my interest first.
Admit it, you would have gone in also! Normally when I am with my dear husband and I go into a quilt store, he stays in the car. That was not a choice this time nor did I spot a nearby history museum.
What to do with the long suffering man?
Bring him in! There are two comfy chairs for the non quilters who happen to be with you. Cliff loved it and this way he could hold my bags, purse, water, etc! I appreciated it because this story is mighty but just a tad small, I needed freedom to explore!
If you look way in the back you will see quilts hanging on poles. They are for sale and this shop started as a place to purchase quilts. Nowadays there is far more than that, all kinds of nifty fabrics and one of a kind items.
Fortunately for us, the gracious owner, Linda Hitchcock was present and was so interesting to discuss her shop, Seattle, fabric and the world with! She told us that the shop had been in downtown Seattle for 26 years, most recently in this location.
Not only is she a dynamic person and great conversationalist, she obviously has a terrific eye for fabrics. Had I not been flying, I could have bought far more. Everywhere you looked there was something unique and tempting.
Due to space constrictions I selected two 2 yard pieces of fabric and a book. You can see them here along with this tantalizing fabric map of Seattle. They had it made into the most cunning bag you've ever coveted.
Linda gifted the map fabric to me, she must have realized the allure it held for me. In my head, I've already made 27 clever projects with it.
Maybe just one would suffice?
