Quilting Adventures

On Sunday afternoon, Anastasia and I had some errands to run. I'd looked on line earlier to see what there might be in the way of quilt shops in Richmond and found Quilting Adventures. It wasn't very far out of our way, so we went over.

Oh, my! Friends, if you find yourself anywhere near Richmond, you simply must get over to this shop. Bright and cheerful, it has spectacular contemporary fabrics and a humongous stash of batiks.

Immediately on entering the shop the batiks caught our eye and Anastasia went directly to the print pictured here (the background is more of a soft green than it looks like -- drat the flash!) and said how pretty it was. We wandered around and ultimately I remembered that their good friends are expecting a little girl in August. So I offered to make a little quilt for this baby girl and we picked out the coordinates.

The shop doesn't have on-line sales as yet, but they are working on that. And, surprisingly for a shop in Richmond, they don't have any Civil War repros. But they more than make up for that with the bright, light, happy designer fabrics that they do have.

Next time we go south, this will be a must stop!

Lovely fabrics - your DIL has excellent taste with her starter fabric - very pretty and girly without being too sickly. BTW my bag and fabric arrived this morning - thank you so much - it's a great size, big enough to hold a party in almost. I'm very conscientious about not using plastic bags when I shop and it will be brilliant to take grocery shopping so will be used every week - thanks again :o)

Love your fabrics...see my previous comment about my travels to see my niece in Richmond! You have encouraged me to forget the traffic that we will encounter and just go to visit! Have a great day!
