One of the highlights of our spring break 2700 mile road trip was this...
Little Quilts in Marietta, GA.
The first quilt book that I ever bought was "Little Quilts: All Through the House" by the owners of Little Quilts.
The first quilt that I ever finished was the log cabin from their book.
This was before I knew how to use a rotary cutter or ruler, so I cut the strips with scissors.
I even 'hand' quilted it. It turned out wonky to say the least.
Anyway, I have nearly every pattern that Little Quilts sold.
I had always hoped that one day I would get there.
And sure enough I did!
It was awesome.
I mean just packed with fabric, samples, patterns, books...and on and on.
It wasn't just primitives or civil war as it appears.
They had Kaffe, Moda, 1930's and baby quilt prints.
An eclectic mix.
Here's my loot.
I wanted a couple of souvenirs so I picked one of their project bags with their logo
and a collectable shop button.
And this lace and printed ribbon.
Check out the thread, sewing machine and scissors on that ribbon....it's only 3/8" wide!
I LOVE it.
So that was a highlight of the trip...
we had other good times too, but more on that in another post.
