So Cal Quilt Shop Visits

While I was in California, in between working and visiting with my family, I did have some time to visit a two other quilt shops.  Southern California has more than their fair share of really good ones!  Look at my last blog post to see all that Fat Quarters Quilt Shop in Vista has to offer.  

Me, Lisa Bongean and my A Primitive Gathering BOM quilt in the background.
I popped in at Primitive Gatherings in Murrieta and found Lisa in the shop while I was there.  She was on her way out to teach for a guild, but we had a few minutes to catch up and visit.
This Primitive Gatherings shop is not even a year old, and look how chock full of yummy goods and inspiration awaits.  

You can sure linger there a long time to take it all in.
Sometimes, I'm hit with a kind of sadness when shopping at a store like this, only because you are met with a strong desire to make everything you see, and you realize you only have but one life and just can't have it all.  What a bummer!  Teehee!!
I was so jazzed to see this display of my patterns.  They have lots and lots of other designers, too.  So, so much to choose from.  

This is another 'must see' quilt shop if you're in the Temecula, CA area.  Keep up with what's new at Primitive Gatherings blog and Lisa Bongean's Blog.
Temecula Quilt Co shop owner, Sheryl Johnson.  Fabrics next to Sheryl are Old Green Calicos
by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabrics.
The next day, I headed to Temecula to visit with Sheryl at her shop, Temecula Quilt Co.  I was very happy to see that my new fabric, Old Green Calicos was in the shop when I arrived.  
Last year, Sheryl created this awesome Prairie Burgoyne quilt using my Prairie Gathering fabric line.  Love, love this quilt, especially because of the way Sheryl added her name to the top of the quilt.  So vintage repro!!  When I was there last year, I saw the quilt in progress, and was very happy for the opportunity to see it complete this year.  

Temecula Quilt Co. features tons and tons of Civil War reproduction fabrics.  

I think you would agree that Sheryl has a wonderful way of displaying the fabrics and quilts in the shop.

Keep up with what's new at Temecula Quilt Co. on Sheryl's blog as there's always new and inspiring projects waiting for you.

Next week, I'll be visiting the Country Road Quilters Guild in Ocala, FL for a lecture and workshop.  The workshop is filled, but you can still come to the lecture on Feb 4th.  Email Karen at kah577@aol.com.  

Next month, I'll be at The Indiana Heritage Quilt Show March 3-5th, in Bloomington, IN. Click here for more info on the show.  

There will be more new things to tell you about from Heartspun Quilts in my next post.  Until then, hope you find some time for stitchin'!!
