Where in the world should I go next?

Dreaming about continuing my GIANT SHOP HOP this fall.

I am looking for suggestions. What states do you think I should visit this time? Send me a comment below and let me know what you think. You can check out the states and shops that I have already visited by looking at the column on the right.


And while I am thinking of traveling and quilt shops . . . WELL, there seams (I mean seems) to be a sign for everything else. Don't you think we need a road side symbol for QUILT SHOPS?

Quilt Cove - Eagan, Minnesota

Minnesota looks damp and dreary doesn't it? Well, wait until you
step inside the Quilt Cove you will be surrounded by colorful fabrics and quilts!


Meet Sue Herzberg, owner of Quilt Cove!


This shop hosts a large color wall.
Are you in need a certain shade or tint of any color fabric?
You will most likely find it here!


No cutting corners in this cutting corner. ;-)


This pile of fabric bundles . . .
makes you want to 'dig in'
and find that 'just right' bundle for
your next project. Fun, fun, fun!



Many, many, many sample quilts displayed - a feast for the eyes.


And much to my delight (as a publisher of patterns)
there is an extensive pattern wall!
The photo only shows a small portion of it!


I hope you'll check out this shop next time you are in the
Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro area. (They are quite close
to the Mall of America and Ikea. )

Eagle Creek Quilt Shop - Shakopee, Minnesota

Eagle Creek Quilt Shop is located in this historic 1909 railroad depot
close to downtown Shakopee.


Lori Gillick (pictured below) owns this one of a kind
shop with her partner Becky Kelso.


The tall ceilings of this building lend themselves to a
great gallery like presentation of quilts large and small.


The freight room with brick walls
and large doors create a charm unique to this building.



Projects and kits abound.



Lots of natural light in this bright and airy shop!


Stop in - You'll fall in love . . .
with the quilts, the building and the people!

Fabric Town - Apple Valley, Minnesota


Welcome to Fabric Town!


I am pleased to introduce Patti Donahue-Peltz, owner of this happy establishment!



Here you will find a tidy and inviting shop.


Great displays and awesome samples!


Cozy and Warm . . .



. . . Sweet and Cheerful.


Did I already say . . . awesome samples?


Hexagons! One of my favs!



And being a hand quilter myself, I was delighted to
see samples featuring hand quilting.

There may be freezing rain and snow outside but
there is warmth and cheer inside this shop!

There's much more to see so I hope you will visit,
