Quilt Shops and Yard Sales

St George, Utah High70 Low 34

Today was spent visiting St. George Quilt shops and finding a new store in Hurricane. Ray also had to get his yard sale fix. He said it’s been a while.

Our second quilt shop and our favorite store in St. George, Scrap Apple Quilts had a 20% sale on books and patterns.  We could not resist. We even went back to get this pattern. When we saw it we both thought it was quit striking, but may be more challenging than we wanted to tackle at this time. So we bought this one and this book.  Oh yes, we had to buy material also, some batiks that were on clearance.

This is the pattern we bought first.
We went back to buy this pattern.
Inside the Quilters Cottage. The old ceiling was quite neat.

I liked this quilt

On our way back to the 5er, we found Main Street Quilting Cottage. We visited for a time and Ray showed one of the three owners a trick for the Gammill Long arm. Quilters just like RVers are more than willing to share tips.
