At last.

This week I finally got my rear in gear and headed up to Wooden Gate Quilts to check it out. It's great, Marby and the crew have worked very hard to get the shop all spiffed up and chock full of fabulous new fabric. Cyndi Rymer made this wonderful new logo quilt for the shop. Cyndy is just one of the famous people who hang out at Wooden Gate Quilts. We're lucky to have a lot of great talent in our area, of course it's awfully intimidating as well!

As usual I think I'm taking a slew of pictures.. but I wasn't! I WAS GAWKING at the new fabrics and the threads and talking. Here's Marby hanging up my Sugar Stars quilt. They carry a lot of Flower Sugar there, and they have a nice selection of Lecien fabrics in general. I needed to pick up some backing for this years Flower Sugar quilt, Sugar Shop. I think it's a fun quilt to make, you can ask Elizabeth... she liked it so much she made one herself!

Anyhooo.... I must doodle along this morning, Elizabeth and I are taking an afternoon off to go have lunch with Becky and Miss Jean. We might even hit a couple of antique shops! Plus I need more fusible fleece people.. bags are waiting to be made.

I hope you all have a super great weekend! xo

Looks like a wonderful shop. I'll add it to my "when I go home to my Bay area this is where I want to go" list
Last visit I went looking for a quilt shop I use to go to in W Creek but it was gone!
Have a great weekend!

I love that logo quilt! I got in there last Saturday and the shop looks great! Can't wait until it fills up with fabric! : ) I need to head back up there once they have Bari's Country Lane.

I wish I could tag along on your lunch but you're too far away Pam Kitty!! You must visit me sometime and we can go to Tammy Tadd's and then out to lunch.
