Traveling in Florida to Rainbows End Quilt Shop

Pin It

A few weeks ago we spent our anniversary in Dunedin, Florida And, of course I wanted to visit a quilt shop that I've heard Sooooo...... much about 

Rainbows End - their site is HERE


It was a bit overwhelming to step into the shop.


Floor to ceiling fabric ! ! ! 
And yes, I was having OMG moment's. 


The back room of the shop is nothing 
BUT Christmas fabric


AND Fabric


AND Fabric - there has to be 10,000 bolts it's crazy 
and so organized ! 

I came home with a VERY large bag of fabric.
SO worth a stop !


For all the modern in Quilting, 


Nothing makes me happier than seeing this ! 



My sweet Husband playing on his iphone 
just waiting for me !

Holiday Block of the Month Quilt

Pin It

One of my old Block of the Month pattern quilts.


 I love Holiday's and this quilt has a block for each month.
These were done for a quilt guild and added to the newsletter each month.


Machine pieced and I hand quilted it


With everything happening the past year I've moved away from the local guild. There are seasons for everything and right now, I have so much on my plate, I don't have much more to give. I miss it. Maybe, some day soon.

Laughter a Quilter Understands:

“You have a closet full of fabric you don’t need more.” LAUGH

“I’ll have the quilt finished in no time.” Joke

“Yes, cottons cheap.” LAUGH out Loud

“Here take my Grandmother’s quilt with you on your fishing trip.” LAUGH until you pee your pants.

“Of course, you can give one of my quilts to the dog when I die and only if you want me to haunt you forever.” Chuckle (kind of)

“No, I never order and have food delivered. I’m all homemade.” Laugh out LOUD

“Only a few more stitches and I’ll take the quilt frame down.” Giggle

“I have a coupon for that, let me have a couple of minutes and I’ll get it off my phone.” HOOT, SNORT !

“A quilt group with no opinions.” Snicker

“You cut fabric apart and sew it back together?”  Fall down Laughing “YES”
