Among Friends Quilt Shop, Louisville, Ky

Where do I start,What a wonderful store.....I can understand why it is being featured in the fall/winter issue of Better Homes and gardens Quilt sampler magazine, as one of the top ten quilt shops in North America.It was a great store ( I stayed in there so long DH came to see if I had gone somewhere else***VBS***) So much to see. But I must tell you the owner didn't want me to take pics of the quilts she had on display, and there were some stunning ones. She said all of them didn't belong to her and she didn't want to get into trouble with anyone, so I respect her wishes. She did let me take some for my own enjoyment, and I appreciated that.

The store is very large, she has a lot of gift items,not quilty things but lovely just the same,but she does have lots of fabrics and any notion you could possibly want.Fun, fun shopping.I saw a quilt hanging on the wall that I "needed to make", so of course I bought the book the pattern was in and the fabrics to make it, that is the fabrics the pic is of. The tote is what they put my purchases in, neat, I thought.The other pic is as you enter the shop, you really need to visit this store if you are ever in this area. it will be well worth your time. I haven't mentioned the employees, they were very friendly and extremely helpful. I guarantee you will like this store, no question about it.I didn't realize you could see the quilt hanging up to the right, that is what Iwant to make. The book I purchased is a newly published one, you may want to check it out,

the name of it is Weekend Quilting Wonders,there is 40+ projects in it. The quilt pattern I want to make and also a tablerunner I want to make is in there. I called my LQS yesterday to tell her she " needed to get this book on her shelves" and she laughed at me, cause she and her trusty helper was looking at it,

( great minds, you know):(

I am so looking forward to getting home to see all my friends and I want to say a big HAPPY

BIRTHDAY to Shirley...She is such a wonderful lady! See you Tuesday!
