Quilt Trends....... Columbus, Ohio






















As you can see, I "found" another Quilt store. A very nice one too. They have only been in their present location since November 'o7...... A nice open shop with lots of space, although they did have a lot of eye candy for my pleasure. I was in there about an houe, as you can see by the pic, DH was patiently waiting for me.The lady that was helping me was friendly enough, once anyone spoke to me, there was 3 workers and 2 ( including Me) customers. I was in there about 25 minutes before anyone even spoke to me....I thought that was a little strange, but then everyone is not a chatter box like me ...LOL...
Any way, there was some beautiful quilts hanging every where, and lots of nice fabrics.She had many, many patterns and books, and that is where I spent most of my time.I purchased 3 patterns, I plan to make them all.....Sometime....***VBS***
As you will see at the bottom ( my post label) I must make a confession.One that my sister will love...............When we got here on Monday, I really got excited. I had already looked in my Traveling Companion book and saw several Quilt shops that I thought was close by.....One in particular...IT was across the street and I sat and looked out the window at all the ladies going in and out with their purchases and was even more excited................It was TOO HOT to walk over there, so when we finally went out, I didn't say anything because according to the ad in the book they closed at 5 and I needed more time than we had, and also I had all day on Tuesday..... Well, we went the other direction and guess what I saw.... A quilt store by the same name QUILT TRENDS............but I am on another street, asked DH to stop and let me look in the window and was very excited, but couldn't decide what I had seen from our motel room, so after we get through with our meal, I tell DH, you got to ride by and let me look in the window of that other shop...................WELL, that " shop" is now a beauty salon and the other one is where the QT had moved. MY CONFESSION, I called my sister to tell her about the shop " across" the street and was bragging all about being so close I could walk, etc.. No, I haven't called her back with my confession, cause she reads my blog and she can just laugh when she reads this and I won't have to hear her***LOL***
We are in Columbus Ohio and there was a huge storm here yesterday afternoon, lots of flooding, etc. , but fortunately we were about an hour away, the sun was shining and it was extremely hot.
By the time we got back here the waters had receeded and we had no problems. Gosh, I will be glad when we are home....Yes, I know , we have bad weather at home, but there is something about just being home....
I am planning to post again tomorrow as I took several more pics at Quilt Trends, I think you will enjoy seeing them. Got to check my email, so have a good day and quilt a lot of Memories for me. See Ya, Bobbin

Have you gone to the Glass Thimble? It's a wonderful quilt shop. I know it changed owners and I hope it's as nice as it was before.
