For a number of years I spent the majority of my free time behind my sewing machine stitching quilt tops. About a year ago I returned to the world of cross stitch, entered the world of blogging, and became passionate about exchanges and round robins! So much of my time is spent stitching and visiting local (and not so local) needlework shops. I recently had a brilliant idea...I would go visit one of those "not so local" shops, a mere 3 hours way! I drove to The Stitchery/Needlearts, Keepsake Quilting in Center Harbor, NH. Yes, it was a long drive but worth the trip.
Although I have not abandon my machine it does get a lot more rest these days :-). While attend a quilt show in NJ, I noticed a great "Coffee" quilt displayed in a vendor's booth. I did what any true coffee lover would do...I rushed in, scooped up the last quilt kit, and paid for it~all in under 1 minute! Not a very difficult design at all, I pieced it in no time and sent it off to be machine quilted. No, I do not hand (or machine) quilt my tops. No time for that, my WIP list is much too long.
I am happy to say that my Coffee Quilt is hanging in my Vermont Kitchen. I should point out that my Vermont kitchen is in my VT house. One wonderful visitor to my blog read "my Vermont kitchen" and thought that I had more than one kitchen in my CT house (her comment made me laugh).
I am looking to post an online review of a Vermont Quilt Shop so if you know of a website please let me know~
Until next time...
