When Life Gives You Scraps....

First off let me just say that NO, I did NOT make any of these quilts and some of the pics are a bit blurry~sorry, but I wanted you to see one of our local quilt shops that I hang out at every Tues. afternoon for 'open sewing day'.

The owner(Penny) of the shop(Little Red Hen) keeps her prices really low and reasonable and her shop has really thrived even in the midst of a slower economy. We always have such a fun time together as a group and most of them get lots of sewing done. I usually take my hand stitching(cross stitch or wool applique) along so I don't have to drag my machine out, etc. but this past wk. I actually took it and finished another TB quilt block from that quilt I started last yr. (forgot to take a pic of it).

These first two quilts are actually miniature quilts and I thought they were just adorable. I love anything miniature! LOL

Did you notice the lace around the curve??Here's some random pics of quilts hanging in her shop....

This is one I would like to start in the near future. I've had the pattern for the quilt block since way last yr. I LOVE anything w/pinwheels or stars!

Penny also has two big bay windows that she decorates w/quilts. I sure hope you enjoyed the little 'tour'.

I'm working on a b'day gift for my MIL, so can't show it just yet, but hope to be back on here again soon!

Happy Stitching w/whatever you're working on!

There is lots of inspiration in this quilt shop. I like a shop that has quilts on display in every nook and cranny.

What a beautiful selection of quilts! Thanks for sharing the wonderful shop that you get to frequent Tanya. I've always admired those who quilt and love quilts-just never have learned the tricks of the trade.
Blessings and Happy Mother's Day to you~
