This was our second stop on this whirlwind vacation.
I was overwhelmed by how much fabric there was! I checked out each and every shop. My Hubby followed me around and then I have to tell him go away! Go to the man cave. No he kept following me around from store to store. He eventually would go sit down in a chair and have a chat with another male visitor. LOL!
Here are some more Photos.

|Stairs going up to more shops. These are Jenny-isms.|
|Another mural, this is on the Sewing Center. |
With this trip I also got to go to Puducha KY and check out Hancock's Fabrics and the National Quit Museum. No Photos there due to rain and of course No photos in the museum. All I can say about museum is it was humbling seeing all that wonderful talent.....amazing! There were a few other stops and quilt shop visits but because of the fun at MSQ and Puducha, I did more looking that shopping! LOL!
I do have some photos of what I have been working on too.
I started this before I left and had about 8 of the large star squares done. After getting some more fabrics ( Moda- French Generals) I have been working hard on it.
The pattern is from a book called A Cut Above by Gerri Robinson. I just love the red and gold fabrics and of course STARS!!
I finished all the blocks for the inside just working on getting the size I want it to be. The book states it will finish at 84" x 76", I would be happier with it being 84 X 80 or 84 X 84....so I am thinking of adding 2 extra boarders between the smaller stars. I want it to fit well on our Masters bedroom bed which is a queen. I don't want to add more to the outside boarder...it is already pretty big.
One more before I go.
The fun part is I am also making a secondary quilt out of the pieces that are cut off from the large stars. I will show you that one another day. Thanks for stopping by and Thanks for letting me share my Vacation photos it was a fun little quity trip.
I have a question for you...do you have a queen quilt on you bed? Did you make it and if so what size is it?
Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide
