Quilt Shop: BJ's Fabrics & Quilts, Cloverdale, Oregon from ... Cat Patches

As I mentioned in a previous post, it was quite a surprise to find this little shop in tiny Cloverdale, Oregon, when we visited the Neskowin Ghost Forest last week. I've been promising you a review of this shop, and I'm finally getting to it. Ordinarily, I'm kind of a homebody, but I've been out on the town 10 out of the past 14 days, and so my blog posts have been written on the fly. Finally, I have some time to spend on it this morning. 

So, I might have taken a more head-long shot ...

Words that End in "Pid" from ... Cat Patches

You'll need to let me know if we were intrepid or stupid this weekend. It was a short couple of days, but we packed a lot in. As I mentioned in my last post, we headed over to Neskowin, Oregon, to see the Neskowin Ghost Forest...an item that has been a long-time resident on my bucket list. And you know how it is when you travel with me...you see a lot of barns. Only, this time, not so many because the first barn caused me great frustration. This is how it is trying to photograph ...

Teri's Travels: A Museum, a Quilt Shop, and Dignity from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

A couple of weeks ago, I (Teri) shared my visit to the Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana. We are still on the road—nearing home as I post this—but I saw so many amazing things during this trip that it may take quite a while to share them all! 

Our next quilt-related stop was in Chamberlain, South Dakota. This had not been one of our planned stops, but was I ever glad it made it into our itinerary. We originally planned to follow the Lewis and Clark Trail all the way to the coast, but they sadly ...

A Small Finish from ... Cat Patches

When I went downstairs after writing my blog post yesterday, I found Sadie stressed to the max.


Wait...did I say "stressed"? I meant "stretched," although cats without tails are still short even when extended to their maximum length.

While she slept, I sewed the binding on the Beach Hut, and now it is finished.


Here's how it looks from the back.


That backing fabric was one of the regional prints, purchased at a Sew Many Threads quilt shop near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Smitty doesn't appear to care for this piece. He's wondering why a house ...

Back to Business from ... Cat Patches

Hey, good morning! We're back home at the stationary Three Cats Ranch, and it's time to get busy. No more loafing. And if we're getting back to business, then the first order of business is to choose a winner in the Nine is Fine Giveaway. Thanks to all who entered and left such nice comments. Spinning the dial on Mr. Random, I came up with...


Looking down the list, that brings me to...

NC Trip Part 1 from Mama Spark's World

I know that I have been quiet for awhile now.   Babies have been born and their quilts delivered so I can NOW talk about that.   Bridal shower gifts have been given so NOW I can talk about that too.   This week will be several posts catching up on all of this activity.  Breakfast (at the DTW airport) was Chick-Fillet.  It's the only place I know of with a Chick-Fillet in MI.

Sew Wot Tuesday at Fox’s Cottage from Romany Quilting

It was a Sew Wot morning with a difference today as we met in the classroom at the lovely quilt shop, Fox’s Cottage.  Situated on the corner of Purcell St and SH1 at Foxton it is a bright and busy shop indeed.  Owners Robyn and Luchelle always make their customers feel very welcome.

Fox’s Cottage at Foxton

With so many goodies to check out in the shop, not much stitching got done.  Several of us brought knitting along, including me, for a change.  I’m trying hard to complete my cozy woolen cardigan before another winter rolls by ...

Quilt Shop: Forget-Me-Knots; Bandon, Oregon from ... Cat Patches

As I mentioned in my previous post, we visited a quilt shop today. Here's the history behind this visit: When we decided to go to Bandon, I got on my phone and asked my friend Siri to find quilt shops in Bandon. Siri found the one at this website: Forget-Me-Knots. And if you click on that link, you'll see the "new store hours" since March of 2019 are Thursday through Saturday from 10-5. And I thought, really? They're really only open three days per week?

So, I wrote to the shop, thinking that had to be some ...

All New from ... Cat Patches

All new, except for this one last block from an old project. The last of the Sundress blocks is finished.


Probably I won't get around to sewing this one together until the end of the year since I have six quilts ahead of it, but having the embroidery done is a big step toward a finish.

Recently, I've been finishing up a lot of my piecing and embroidery WIPS..."finishing" being a relative term. None of them are sewn together, but they've reached the next stage of the process. And all of that to say that I ...

Quilters' Corner Quilt Shop from Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

Hello Everyone,
 
Last week I had a day between a lecture and a workshop......so what was I going to do with a free day?  Well set up a workstation in the hotel and sew the entire day.  No cooking, cleaning, office work or dog walking.....only sewing.  I made eighteen 5-1/2" blocks for my big Cute as a Button.
 


I tried not to leave too many threads on the floor in the hotel.  You know how that goes!


I also did some serious retail therapy at Quilters' Corner in Sacramento.  This store has something for everyone.  This store ...

Many Miles of Majestic Mountains from ... Cat Patches

You'd be disappointed if I didn't lay a little awesome alliteration on you before our trip is over, wouldn't you? We're home now, and there's quite a bit of catching up to do, both blog-wise and unpacking-wise. So let's just back up to when we left Reno, Nevada, yesterday morning. It was going to be a long day of driving, and so we got an early start. It wasn't long before we crossed the border into northern California.


It's a beautiful part of the country, ringed with mountains.

Vacation Continues from Mama Spark's World

We decided one day to go and check out the new modern quilt shop in Sarasota.   It is called the Modern Sewist.   As you can see this is a beautiful shop!  They has so many of the beautiful fabrics I only see online. Before the Big Cat Rescue Sanctuary we stopped for lunch at Stottlemeyers. OMGosh, the BEST BBQ nacho plate EVER! We went to the Big Cat Rescue in Sarasota
