My hometown - Lafayette, Louisiana - has a new quilt shop. The Borne Quilter opened in June, only ten months ago. The shop is small, but there were wonderful fabric lines and shop samples. (Drat! I could have used my camera) There was even some flannel fabric. Flannel has not been popular in tropical Louisiana like in other parts of the US. The shop has great potential. I know I'll visit it again next time I visit Dad. It's about a mile from his apartment :)
Don't you love the way they package their fat quarters? I purchased several more shirting fabrics for my future Sixteen Patch and Pinwheels project. The charm pack of Kathy Schmitz Red Bird in the Bowers is for a purse/tote bag.
The Borne Quilter has a website. Visit them at www.thebornequilter.com
