Field trip!

This, in my opinion, is what a quilt store should be. Strip mall fabric is fine, but this works wonders for your soul.

The rooster meets you at the gate.

The fabric selection is astounding.


And you leave there ready to make whatever strikes your fancy. These happen to be for the Dear Jane quilt but I was very, very tempted to grab everything I could lay my hands on.


Absolute fabric addict heaven!
(Yes, I did post the same thing on two blogs.)

Pin It!

That does indeed look like a wonderful quilt store. I have to say that being greeted by roosters is such a novel and delightful experience that I wish I could enjoy it, too.

I am just beginning to learn to quilt. I am so excited. I am doing the quilt a long over at crazymomquilts.blogspot.com and also I am taking a quilting class with my mom in Chattanooga. We are excited. I also want to learn to embroidery but don't know where to start. Thanks for the great blog. I enjoyed my visit and will be back!

i'm a new reader catching up on your old blog posts and i know i'm like 6 months late with this comment... but keepsake cottage is my favorite quilt shop in the seattle area! the location is kind of random, but i like it better than quiltworks nw or quilting loft or any of the other places i've been to.
