We aren’t home yet but I thought I would show you the beautiful fat quarters I got at the Calico Hutch quilt shop in Hayward, Minnesota. We happened to be there the last Friday of the month when all fat quarters are only a $1.50 each. I picked up some batiks…….
a few more and then some cute packages of scraps. The staff were very nice and fun, we were at this shop 3 years ago and it is still just as neat! Lots and lots of beautiful quilts, kits and fabrics.
We also met a couple women that had come for the fat quarter special……nothing like a sale to get us talking! Marj and Karen were so much fun! Karen and Bob talked about remodeling while Marj and I grabbed the goodies. Hmmm…..I wonder if there were any fat quarters left for Karen after we left.
Here they are trying to look serious……not working guys! I didn’t take any photos inside darn it. I think it was because I had too many things in my basket.
Last time we came to Hayward, Bob bought some fantastic summer sausage at Nick’s Smoked Meats and we picked up some again to take home. When I found these packages at the quilt store I just had to buy them! These are scraps of fabric that are packaged and taken to Nicks to be weighed and the label printed. I opened only one so far and I can’t wait to get home and open the rest!
Here is a better photo of the label. Isn’t that the neatest thing!
I was in a quilt shop yesterday in La Crosse, Wisconsin….more on that later and I told the owner that I was having quilting withdrawal……a week without a sewing machine is a long time!
Looks like we will head home today after…..one more quilt store….another favorite in Fulton, Illinois and then lunch in Clinton, Iowa at Bob’s favorite pizza place…..Rastrellis.
