Quiltsafari again

Today was the big quilt safari day. Hanne, Bente and I visiting two quilt shops (a trip similar to the quiltsafari we had one year ago). First stop was Fabrikkutsalget. They had a lot to choose from.






I just adore this crazy hen up in the shelf among all the fabrics. I regret not buying this one LOL. Only two pieces of fabric (pink of course) came home with me from this shop.

Next stop Quilteliv. She have moved her shop from a tiny room to this wonderful comfortable shop. I really enjoyed visiting her shop now.





In this shop I found some fabrics which I am going to make a little bag from. Not quite the colours I inteded to buy, but my two good friends convinced me that I really ought to step out of my safe corner and make something with blue fabric.

Saying for today:
Several excuses are always
less convincing than one.

Vilka underbara tygbutiker ni har. Tycker att det är ont om dem här i Sverige. Du kanske har koll på var det finns några bra med ett rikligt sortiment här?
Kul att ha en hel helg med likasinnade.
Ha det gott

Always fun to see pictures from shops in your area. In the first picture, what is the "dress" in the center of the picture used for. I can see it has a big pocket.

Hello May Britt,
I think "quiltsafari" is one of most fantastic words I've ever heard! Here in Italy we are absolute beginners in quilting, and so we have so much to learn from quilters all around the world! Thank you for sharing with us
hugs from Padua, Italy
