Holly Hills West Linn, Oregon

I enjoy every trip I make to Holly Hills...not only for the variety of fabrics but they have some of the most spectacularly quilted samples!  I had the opportunity to visit a number of quilt shops but my primary goal was to find some light tone on tone homespuns.  I knew Holly Hills would have a nice selection.  I also needed a  muted brown piece of wool for my the last few rabbits on the free BOM that is designed by Shelle on her site The Raspberry Rabbits which I am participating.  AND...what can I say...after listening to Paulette talk about the French General fabrics...well...I just had to get a jelly roll!

 


Enjoy the slide show...it is filled with yummy things you just might have to have!

  8. I have always wanted to visit Oregon. A friend of mine went to Bend last year and loved it. So lucky to have quilt shops nearby. The closest one to me is an hour drive away. Poo..
