I had lots of fun- and spent lots of money - doing my own unofficial quilt shop hop while in Utah. I visited 10 quilting and fabric stores and managed to find at least one small thing to buy in each of them! This is after visiting lots of quilt shops in Maine and NH in October so my goal now is no more buying, sew what I have! My husband was really nice to put up with all of the stops in quilt shops that we made on our trip. I really did like every shop I went to and found lots of inspiration in each one. They were all really unique and had such a variety, plus the shops themselves were decorated so cute. Here are some pictures which are mostly from The Corn Wagon in Springville. I stopped there about 10 minutes before they closed on Wed night before Thanksgiving while on our way down to St. George for the holiday weekend. It is an adorable shop and the ladies were nice enough to let me take pictures. I really love this little fabric flower project they had up on the wall, and all of their little displays. I think this little Christmas bedroom display is adorable. Here is a list of the stores I visited:
Piper's Quilts and Comforts- Sugarhouse Elaine's Quilt Block- SL Quilted Cottage- American Fork Corn Wagon- Springville Fabric Mill- Orem Thimbles and Threads- Draper Quilt's Etc.- Sandy Pine Needles- at Gardner Village in Midvale Hancock Fabrics- Salt Lake (this is just a regular fabric store but I love that they carry 108" wide quilt backing fabric)
I don't know if I could pick one favorite but I guess if I had choose my top three would be The Corn Wagon, Material Girls, and Piper's. I hope I get to go back someday because of course I know there are a bunch more shops that I didn't visit. Once I've used up all of this fabric that is! Of course, you can never have too much fabric!
I'm a stay-at-home mom of five who likes photography, quilting, reading, cooking when I'm in the mood, watching movies, going to the beach, home renovation and decorating, swimming, and hanging out with my kids. At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with Downton Abbey.
I live in New England, and my favorite season is spring. I love the colors green and pink.
