One More Quilt Shop and A Volcano from Humble Quilts



When you see this it is a sure sign of QUILT SHOP ALERT! 


We followed the signs....


I kind of wish I got some of this beautiful fabric! 
To remind me of this epic site!! This beach is known for the turtles to come and rest and I was super excited they were there when we were!


Quilt Passions was the name of this shop. 











It was bright and cheerful with quite a few Hawaiian style samples on the walls. 

It is the only quilt shop I've been to that has a room dedicated to emergency supplies!
Lots of ...

Quilt Shops in Hawaii from Humble Quilts

Good Morning friends! We are back from the magical Island of Hawaii! Had a really wonderful time. This was a trip overdue from the cancellation we had last year due to Covid.

We went to the big island and I found 2 lovely quilt shops. 
This one was within 1/2mile of our condo.



If you read Quiltfolk, this shop was in the Hawaii issue!



Such a lovely variety of fabrics.

With plenty of room to browse safely!


I'm a reproduction girl through and through, but had to get this fun piece!!

Here We Go Again… from Hooked on Quilting

I’m not as good about going thru my shop e-mails as I was when we were open every day.  I’m not sure why, but I’m guessing it’s because I don’t go downstairs every day to piddle around in the shop.  I haven’t decided whether that’s because I’ve gotten lazy in my old age, or because I have the distraction of Rick still working from home.  It’s probably more of the latter since I tend to stay upstairs where he is and actually stop to eat lunch when he’s here, neither ...

Yee-Haw! from Humble Quilts


Happy Friday friends! We had an excellent trip to Wyoming! Weather was good, people were friendly, skies and mountains were big!

I made it to ONE quilt shop in Cody.  I had to get a small piece that represents WY. The bucking cowboy is on the license plates and a UW mascot. 

And I saw this and HAD to get it! It looks geometric...

But when you get a closer look it is spark plugs! LOL We have an auto parts store and sell a lot of these. I've never seen a fabric like this before. 
It was jammed ...

Okay, so here’s what Happened and Then from Terificreations's Weblog

It’s been a week and it’s Wednesday, and had to check that by hovering the cursor over the time on the laptop. Last week I dropped something off with a friend here locally as I left her house on my next errand a small rock kicked up and hit the windshield causing a star right… Continue reading Okay, so here’s what Happened and Then

Monday Muse from Humble Quilts

 Happy Monday. Superbowl was a bit of a blow out and this year was the first we didn't have an all out party. I don't feel like I missed a thing. 


I got happy mail last week!

I want to make an effort to support some of my favorite small businesses this year. One of them is Two Thimble Quilt Shop owned by my friend Lee. I needed a gift and so last month I ordered a reproduction fabric roll, one for me and one for a friend. Sometimes I get tired of seeing the same fabric in ...

A lovely shop from Quilting with Kimberly

This past August, I traveled to visit family in Northeast Ohio and while there, I stopped in to visit a lovely shop, The Liberty Green Quilt Shop, located in Akron, Ohio. I’ve been Facebook friends with the owner, Joyce Hillick Ely, for a very long time and I’ve enjoyed seeing all she and her sweet daughter, Sarah, have accomplished over the past ten years. Simply put, they are the heart and soul of the shop! It was such a privilege to meet Joyce and see the beautiful store. Sadly, Sarah was not at the shop the day I ...

Dreaming as Creativity from Terificreations's Weblog

My Sweetie asked me a question, “when are you going to open your own quilt shop?” I’m not. But this got me to dreaming. Dreaming is good, it leads us to innovation, solutions, realizations. Having worked in a couple of quilt shops, traveled to so many over the years, attending Quilt Market, and all I’ve… Continue reading Dreaming as Creativity

Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh is cancelled. The link takes you to their official statement and below is an official statement from them: regarding… Continue reading On Spring Market and Other Things

SBQG Quilt Show Recap from Quilting with Kimberly

This past weekend my local quilt guild, the South Bay Quilt Guild, held it’s annual quilt show at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center in Torrance, CA. It was a great show! Lots of beautiful quilts, a quilt auction, featured artist, vendors and challenge quilts were on display. I thought you might like to see a few photos. The members worked so hard to make this a fabulous event and their hard work and efforts certainly paid off!

The show was well attended by many from the local community. Both days (Saturday and Sunday) saw big crowds which, of course ...

I’ve joined a gang. from Quilting with Kimberly

The Sewing Arts Center famous ‘blue wall.” This is an iconic photo spot! My new Stitchin’ Babes Roadies: from left, Pat, Marie, and Melanie

Every gal needs a group of cronies where she can ‘belong’ and I’m no exception. Thankfully, I have found my gang and we’re calling ourselves the Stitchin’ Babes Roadies. (Cue: giggles.)

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I hosted the kit cutting party here at my house? (If you missed it, you can read about it by CLICKING HERE.) My friend, Melanie was there and I was asking about local quilt shops in ...

forwards and backwards . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Because this post covers a lot of time, current and past!  
I finally finished up Ellie's bicycle embroidery, which was a good thing ... her (8th) birthday was Friday and we celebrated last night! It's a simple finish because I didn't want the fabric or the quilting to take away from the piece it was showcasing.  Mission accomplished!  *smirk*  Ellie had her first slumber party on Friday night, so we did family dinner at a Japanese restaurant called Edo's.  Her choice!
I love the complexity of this sweet girl.  For all that she loves girlie things (check ...

Quilt Shop Stop Ahead from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

Our girl's been in Oklahoma for 18 months and although I've been there a couple of times, her Daddy never has. She makes the trip home quite a bit (we'll take her and our boy anytime we can get them) and it hasn't been long since her last visit. This last weekend we remedied that with a little  road trip that allowed us time to catch up on podcasts: On a 7 hour trip, we pass through 2 decent

A Quilt Shop Stop and the Inspirational English Countryside from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

As a child, I (Kara) lived in England while my father was stationed there with the Air Force. Our family had a bright, orange Volkswagon van that carried us to the many wonderful places throughout the island for our holidays. Ever since that time, I have always loved Britain—the cities, the countryside, and especially the people.

My husband often has to travel there for work, and anytime I can tag along, I will. On one of our previous visits, I visited the shop Bee Crafty and met some wonderful ladies (you can read about that here), so I decided ...

Autumn is falling from Terificreations's Weblog

And it’s time for a bit of fun. I’m driving through upstate New York visiting several of my quilt shops before heading off to Quilt Market. I’m enjoying the glorious riot of color. Yesterday I drove to Crazy Moose in Inlet NY right in the middle of Adirondack Park. The sunrise indescribable. The fun? While… Continue reading Autumn is falling

Missouri Star Shop Feature: Primitive & Wool from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

“Primitive,” also known as “Early Americana” style, emerged from within the first colonies here in the “New World.” Once the colonists were finally settled in, they had a bit more time get creative with everyday necessities such as clothing, furniture, and children’s toys.

While sewing up clothes for their children and fulfilling the duty of “homemaker,” women started to enhance their making skills with decorative stitching and design, steering away from trends in Europe and creating the first American style.

Today, folk artists use modern elements to create an antiquated look. At Missouri Star Quilt Co., we have a ...
