It's not very often I get to visit a quilt shop, but while I was in California I got to not only visit a quilt shop, I got to visit THIS quilt shop!
The Temecula Quilt Co.
I've been following the goings on at this shop for ages through their blog, Diary of a Quilt Store, it was a real thrill to get to visit the shop in person.
This shop had so many beautiful quilts on display I just wandered around and round, taking them all in.
I was thrilled when I asked permission to take a few pictures for my blog and they said "take as many as you want"!
It was their Red and White Tribute quilt promotion that motivated me to make my Red and White Tribute Quilt.
Most of the quilts and fabric that I see, I see online. Getting to see these patterns made up in person was just wonderful.
I know what you're thinking, with me visiting such an amazing shop, "I can hardly wait to see what Thelma bought".
Nothing! I didn't spend a nickel! They didn't have any kits and I was just so overwhelmed with the whole experience I just couldn't focus on buying yardage. Fabric shopping doesn't come easy to me, it's unusual for me to buy fabric that doesn't have a purpose, I'm weird that way! But it was still worth the stop.
