Quilt Shop Delights



Just for a change from Truly Scrumptious, here are some photos I took of the shop area at The Quilted Crow's Christmas Gathering in September.

If you're anything like me, you like to see lots of samples when you visit a quilt shop. The Quilted Crow is very inspirational in this respect.



I love the way they use old furniture, suitcases and bric-a-brac to display their wares.





These quilts hanging on the wall made a fabulous backdrop to the shop area.



Some Natalie Bird patterns and comptatible fabrics.

Hope you enjoyed these piccies. It is a holiday on Monday in Northern Tasmania. As I don't work tomorrow, that makes four days off. Hoping to do some serious stitching.
It's also nearly time for the Christmas decorating to start! I like to start in early November ... it's always exciting unpacking each box ... takes me about two weeks ... usually do a mini spring clean at the same time.

  10. Wow! Some great projects in those photos. I like the Halloween table mat and some of the quilts. I am going to do a search on Natalie Byrd to see if she has a web site. I would like to see more of her work.

  12. I am enjoying your blog and really want to thank you for listing the ones that you read in order by country. I love reading "foreign" blogs and yours is the first one to organize things this way. Great idea! The photos are inspiring - keep up the good work!

  13. What great photos! Thanks for giving those of us who can't visit the shop an opportunity to enjoy. I agree that I like to be inspired by samples and ideas when I go to a quilt shop. That shop is a "real" destination. I'm wondering too why is it a long weekend in Tasmania? Keep up the great blog. Carmel
