Shop Hop - Little Quilts

Lions, and tigers, and bear, oh my!  It was a circus (or zoo) at Little Quilts on Saturday morning. We drove from Conyers to Marietta in the very worse of the rainstorm. We bravely drove the interstate highways of Atlanta to get there! Brenda from The Quilting Cowgirl blog met us at Little Quilts. While in the shop, Brenda and I were magically transformed into circus performers. There have been many times in my years in a school media center that I've felt like we were operating a Three Ring Circus. Now, I have a photo to go with "our" circus. 

Little Quilts' Shop Hop Quilt is behind the cash register. Shop owner, Mary Ellen and her employees were all dressed as clowns. That's Gretchen and her Mom, Joette, finalizing their purchases with Muriel.

This is Star Gazing one of Pat Wys' Silver Thimble Quilts Patterns hanging in the shop. Stunning quilt, don't you agree? I wanted to take this quilt home with me.

I located quite a few shirting fabrics for my 16 Patches and Pinwheel Quilt (quilt in waiting) The blue fabric was not really on my list. Confession time:)  I was thinking that I would purchase some of the brown fabric that I used in the Neutral Quilt for my SIL. I have plenty of neutrals left from that project. This blue fabric from the same line as the brown insisted on coming home with me. 

Little Quilts was packed with quilts, projects, fabric, stitchery. It's a super quilt shop. It's probably a good thing that it's on the other side of the metro Atlanta from my home. It's one dangerous place :)
