A quick quilt shop visit……….

Was what I decided to do last Saturday while I was at the camper and so close to LaCrosse (WI). The destination was a small but well appointed little place called River Road Quilt Shop, which is located in the same building as another long-time WI business. Nelson Flag and Display. Lots of samples and a very warm, friendly spot, I managed to pick up the latest BH&G “Sampler” magazine that had just ‘hit’ the stands and some fabric for a little man (about 3 yrs) who just needs a ‘super hero’ quilt. His relationship to me would be probably defined as “step-great-grandson” (definitely more common today than years ago!). The pattern is a free download from Robert Kaufman Fabrics here. I was able to get the main panel and the word/exclamations fabric (at least it will work once I do a bit of slice & dice) and I picked out some binding fabric that is perfect (I think!) but may change by the time I get that far!!! LOL! 017018019

That orange fabric (2nd photo, right side of panel) will boost the “bright factor” up another notch for sure!!!!!

So, that’s what is next up………that is, after a few more clients’ quilts!!!!!! Well, it IS something to look forward to putting together, hmmmmmm?????

      “Super Hero” ready to quilt. Changed the original/Kaufman pattern and it turned out larger (like!)….38″x 51″. Had to leave out a couple of provided blocks….one became my label for the back!
