Our Own Quilt Show?

Riverton, Utah          High 81 Low 54

The weather forecasters say it is about 10 degrees cooler than usual. It is supposed to cool off some more later this week.

I did get a picture of the raspberries.

We have been talking to Nancy Kissack for a little while about seeing her while she is in Utah. Since her time in Heber City and the ride on the Heber Creeper got derailed, she decided to come and visit us today. Nancy had a lot of pieces of fabric for Cindy for which she is grateful. She already is picking out pieces to use in one of her quilts.

We decided to take her to several of our favorite quilt stores and to do lunch with her.

We started out in Riverton at My Sister's Quilts And then moved on to Quilters Retreat in Draper.
We got several pictures of quilts and I found out that Cindy and I are not the only ones addicted to fabric. We did buy some but Nancy found and bought some kits she really liked.

Since we were close to one of our favorite restaurants, The Philadelphian, we stopped and had sandwiches and onion rings. The Philadelphia sandwich is always way more than we can eat.

Next we went to Quilts Etc in Sandy. Another kit left with us and then we went to Mormon Handicraft in Midvale that always has sale fabric. This time they had a lot of baby fabric for 75% off and some more fabric came home with us.Cindy also found a kit for 50% off so it left with us.

Hey, somebody has to keep the stores in business, so why not us?Yes, Sandie, we do seem to have enough fabric, but it really doesn't wear out until you make a quilt out of it.

After that we had to come home so Nancy could get back to her fur babies before rush hour. We had a good visit with her and hope to see her in Yuma this winter.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. It was nice that Nancy could stop by for a visit with you guys, and Just knew you would be getting out to visit a few quilt stores. Those quilts sure keep you busy.

  2. I saved some of your pictures ... they are better than mine. It was a GREAT day!! You are right ... I think all three of us are addicted to fabric! LOL

  3. Looks like you had a fun day visiting and dining with Nancy.
    Be Safe and Enjoy making your next Quilt.

    It's about time.

  4. You two are just a disaster in a fabric shop. I think you need keepers to keep you out of the stores.
