Vacation in Quilt Land.....

It is always fun to visit quilt shops....

Lots of inspiration....

What a cute way to "grow" a panel !!!!

This is one of my all time favorite quilts....

It always welcomed me when I visited "Treasure Hunt" quilt shop in Carpinteria....but very sadly they are closing their doors ( sigh).

I did get to spend some quality shopping time at some of my favorites.

Hmmmm......can it really be time to start thinking Christmas quilts????

I am more in a SPRING mode myself!!!!

Flowers and bunnies.....that is where my quilting direction is pointing.

Saving the BEST for last. I ADORE this shop. They get me at the front door....

...with adorable window displays that make me just want to burst right in!!!!

How cute is this toddler canopy bed filled with delectable fabrics and quilts????

This quilt sprang right into my shopping basket....and now I know why I have been hoarding my Bliss Layer Cake!!!!

Everyone's favorite quilt designer was well represented.

Anne and her Bunnyhill designs were everywhere!!!

Yes.....even Anne's BOM quilt was hanging there reminding me to GET INTO MY SEWING room and finish my blocks!!!!

A vacation is a lovely thing....even more so when it includes quilt shop hopping. And speaking of hopping, I had better finish some projects soonest.

I hear the Easter Bunny will be here very soon!!!!

I know what you are thinking...what am I doing on the computer at this hour...couldn't sleep. Maybe I'm so excited that you are going to camp? :-)!! Love, love all the quilts, but really love that Bliss quilt..I'm thinking that would be fun to make at camp.
