Girls Road Trip - Destination Fabric/4

I loved the Reproduction Fabric Shop.
(that's no surprise!)

I thought this fabric would look really cute for  a Toddler dress.

I bought this from the  Reproduction Shop.
Very Baby.

This is the stairway to….MORE fabric!!

Click for a better view of the cute things written on the steps.
"She who dies with the most fabric is not sewing fast enough".  This was the saying Lea chose.  She wants more time to sew!

We stopped at a really cute place at lunch time to rest.  
It was right in the thick of things.
No driving required.

Good food too.

More shopping.  We stayed until they closed the shops and went home.

And had Show and Share in our hotel!!

A Girls Road Trip - Destination Fabric /3

Love this sign!!

The Main Store is where you need to go first.  

You register on their terminal, pick up your "Shopping Pass" and are ready to go.  It is important to register first….they give you a free Charm Bracelet.  At each of the different stores you visit, you will receive a free Charm (each one is different)  if you purchase the required minimum amount of merchandise.

Notice how many  FREE Charms we had at the end of the trip!!

They have daily specials.  That's really fun.

My friend got a really good price on this pretty daily special.

A Girls Road Trip - Destination Fabric / 2

It's time to Sew!!
(This clock was on the wall of Village Quilting)

Our next Fabric stop was Village Quilting.

Lots of fabric, including cute prints for children's clothing.

It's fun to see projects that other people bring into a shop.

This is a vintage quilt a lady brought in to have quilted. I love the old fashioned design.  If you look closely at it, you can see that all the red squares go in one direction.  

The other prints in the other direction.
I like to think about the fun and inspiration that belonged to the woman who made this quilt  so many years ago.

Before the day was over, we arrived at our final destination.

A Girls Road Trip - Destination Fabric

Three friends who love Fabric….ready to go.

One stop to go hiking in beautiful weather.

I am in the red shirt and this was actually a very large surface.
Hawksbill Crag in Arkansas.

Our First Fabric Shop!!

The owner was very nice and let us in to her store even though she was actually closed.

1910 Hwy 16
Elkins, Arkansas

This was a large and well stocked shop.  Plenty of cute prints for smocking.
I bought some cute fabric here.

On to our next adventure...

Linen Baby Bib - Easy!!

This pretty Bib is Linen and it's  Ready to Embroider.

That means it is finished.

No sewing to do.

Just have fun.


I stitched three Pink  Old Fashioned Roses on the center front with green leaves on either side.  Then I left a one inch space between them and added single Pink Roses, three on either side.

I'm pleased.

A Happy Morning

This morning I finally had the time to cut out the binding for my sons quilt!

I cut it out and stitched it along the edges.  

Now  I can  turn the binding and hand sew it in place.

This is a close up of the machine quilting on the back of the  quilt. 

 I love the backing fabric. 

 Perfect for our south Louisiana area.  The quilting pattern Charlene (The Happy Quilter) used matches the fabric.

Charlene is the best long arm quilter ever!!
