As was promised, we continue are 4 shop “shop hop”. The next stop is “Eagle Creek Quilt Shop” in Shakopee (MN). This shop is located in a historic railroad depot and is totally charming!
The floor displays, although presenting unique challenges due to the “footprint” of the structure, were many and inspiring. Entering their door put you in the midst of many opportunities for exciting new projects. Please, follow along as we explore………
The last two photos are of a quilt draped over a door that had used feathers/pebbles in the negative spaces and really looked like an entry in my “I must remember that” file, hence the picture! And this is evidence of purchases made at this location…….. These will find a future ‘home’ in the next grandson’s graduation quilt in the Spring (the designated project for after the first of the year!).
And finally, last but certainly not least, is the Calico Hutch Quilt Shop in Hayward (MN). This shop has been the ultimate fave of mine since first visiting many years ago. Not only is the fabric/notions selection incredible but the gals go out of their way to make you feel ‘at home’…..in this case, the afternoon break/refreshment was an ice cream sundae bar with all the toppings….THANK YOU!!!!!!!! The shop’s location is “in the middle of no where”(!!!) but the destination of shoppers, both individually and by the bus loads. Onward………. Upon entering, you are greeted by this….. And this:
These 2 fabric pieces complete (I think) what will be needed for the grad’s project.
It was a great day, and one that was very well planned resulting in relaxing travels and shop visits.
