ON THE ROAD-A QUILT SHOP STOP

It's not often a quilt designer from Oregon will make a personal delivery on an order from a quilt shop in Amarillo Texas ... but ... since it was on our route east we made it a scheduled stop for a break and for dinner.

Sisters' Scraps Quilt Shop was easy to find right off the interstate and what a cute shop. As you can see from the picture the walls are covered with lots of beautiful samples and there are rooms and rooms filled with bolts and bolts of fabric. Their classroom is spacious and well lit with room for everyone to spread out with all of their sewing gear and have a fun time creating with friends. Thanks Nicole, Kim and Peggy for a great shop tour and good suggestions for dinner spots in the area.


What pattern of mine will you find at their shop? They ordered one of my top sellers Sweet Nothings which you can find listed in the pattern section of their website, or you can order directly from me. As shown here, Sweet Nothings is sewn up using 30's Reproduction fabrics, but it looks just as stunning done up with batiks on a black background. The quilt as designed finishes at 51" x 67", a perfect lap size quilt for napping, but could be easily enlarged by just making more blocks.

The pattern also includes the templates for the optional applique border. Another border option: a dear friend of mine Irene made lots of half square triangles from her scraps and then created a sawtooth border for the outside edge of her quilt.

If you're ever in the area you'll want to be sure and visit this shop. You won't be disappointed. Not traveling on the road? Be sure to visit them on the web at http://www.sistersscraps.com/ .
