The Quilt Shoppe

It takes little effort with the help of Google to find a quilt shop along the way...the challenge is finding one that has something different.  In Poulsbo, Washington there is such a shop!  Poulsbo is a community on the Liberty Bay in Kitsap County. The home of the Suquamish people it saw the first Scandinavian people in the 1800's.  The town is worth straying from the beaten path and offers a wonderful diversion to the day.  You will see more of both La Conner and Poulsbo on the Quilt Roadies 

Beatrice Marx is the owner, designer and fabric cutter of The Quilt Shoppe .  Relocated from France via Seattle she has found her muse and several of the designs you will find here are her own.  And the shop holds a wide array of laser cut motifs.  I bought a whale kit and plan to add a little Sashiko to the creation.  Although she does not have a web store you can call and order anything you see here and she will ship it to you :)

Exclusive to the shop is a line of batiks she designed with the Viking ship motifs...It comes in 3 color ways.  

Enjoy the trip through the shop and be sure
 if you call Beatrice tell her I said Hi!!

  1. It is a lovely shop and Beatrice is so nice. I think I spotted he roe for this year. A big difference from her simple Aric window with water motifs last year. Time to visit again.

  2. Oh Wow! She does have her own niche! Lots of beautiful laser cuts! Those two that you showed right at the end, the Tree of love and Mother Earth are amazing! Soo much fine detail! I could imagine those used several ways! The other one that caught my eye was the black work embroidered block with the mini quilt... I wonder if there is a pattern? and the book by Stary Nash (yes, I was wearing my readers to be able to catch that tiny print this morning! haha) Lydia something.. looks like the Woolie Mammoth has found another good one.. cant wait to see where she goes next! :-)

  3. That is a fun shop and wonderful quilts.


  4. Thank you for your comments. I do have an online shop and website: where you can order many of my patterns and laser cuts.
