Ladies and Gents. . .fasten those seat belts as we take you for a little quilt shop ride. The green flag dropped on the month of June and it's been full speed ahead. We are finally making a much needed pit stop to share with our fans all of the behind the scenes events that have fueled this month.
Meet Daisey. Daisey is part lab, part Austrailian cattle dog and has been a great little fit into our family. She keeps us entertained and has a fun perspective on life and loves to learn. Miss Daisey is a new quilter as she spends her days with Darci at the shop. If she could talk she would tell you that she LOVES to lay on quilts (see above) and take an afternoon snooze and she has a BLAST playing with binding as it gets put down on quilts. It's such a fun game to play tug of binding war with 'mom' and pick up scraps of fabric that fall on the floor.
While we give those just stopping by a 'heads up' about her, you most likely will not find her greeting you on the days the shop is open. We know some are not fans of dogs and try to respect that. She also spends most of her days in our design/class room and does not mosey out into the fabric/quilt area of the shop often so no worries about the bolts of fabric on the shelves :-)
|We packed the jeep to the roof and hit the road for a quilt show in Omaha Nebraska last Wednesday. It was a trek that we have been so excited to do since agreeing to attend last winter.|
|We might be a bit partial but Minnesota is just beautiful from top to bottom. We especially enjoyed our journey through the southern (Pipestone) area with green fields and cattle that reminded us about our dream of taking a trip to Ireland.|
|We also found quilt inspiration along the door frames. The 'X' shape might not be all that excited, but that bottom design has lots of potential.|
|This is what our booth looks like before we started our set-up. Pretty classy, eh?|
|Back of each block...|

More quilts at the show that we enjoyed viewing. . . .
Newbies that have come from our shop. . .and more will follow in a later post. . .
|Bonus project from the panel shown above. This little guy was embroidered and then colored in with colored pencils. It is 6" in size and is a perfect fit for the adorable little Ackfield stands.|
|Speaking of adorable little Ackfield stands, this little 6" quilt block, featuring a crocheted flower center would be a perfect little project to swap out with the project above.|
Well, the checkered flag is going to fly over this post and we thank you for buckling in to catch up on this crazy June ride with us. We are anxious to show off a few more newbies that we got done for the quilt show in the weeks to come, as well as share what we are busy working on.
Until the next time, piece and blessings to you all
