The Scoop + American Quilting
I have received emails asking about the hidden kits...and although I did find them after a frantic hunt I didn't share them here on the blog. So, for those of you that may have missed the intro...my dear friend Cakers dropped a bombshell during a sew day at the Quiet River Retreat! She had hidden in my sewing room 2 kits that she had in her sewing room since 1997! She didn't like them anymore and decided my sewing room was as good a place as any to unload them! Now granted I don't think these photos do them justice...they are full applique kits for one big block. Included is a full page template, backing, batting and fabrics. They are so old that the plastic bags they were packaged in feels funny and I don't think they are BPA free, lol. Original price was $18 a kit...All I can say is Fabric Stalkers...be afraid...be very afraid!!!
Although I usually do a book or movie review on Friday...I have been a slacker and have not finished one book this week...nor watched a movie...wonder why??? Well it is because of Mother Naure, God, Alah, Creator, Jehovah, Yaweh or Dhamma...whoever you believe created this world we live in...well, she/he is the ultimate quilter and I have been distracted by the beauty of it all.
I was amazed by the local pictographs...I see a quilt in this, lol
I had no idea when I ventured into this shop in Orem, Utah that it would all be home to one of my favorite pattern lines, Under The Garden Moon!
Amereican Quilting is a shop that everyone would enjoy. There is a little something for each of you. Google Maps lead us there as it is tucked into a strip mall in a very busy area.
Full disclosure...I couldn't pass up a seasonal set...(I am so over the monthly quilts) These are an Under the Garden Moon pattern set. A piece of off white wool and a litte thread I have been looking for to match the angel wings I am stitching.
Enjoy the slide show! And if you find something you have to have...check out their website or give them a call at American Quilting!
See ya back on Monday and have a wonderful weekend!
