Road Trip Finale

Hello everyone. Well, the Nebraska road trip is over. We had a great time visiting some of our favorite quilt shops again. We enjoyed Cottage Inspirations in Cambridge. Then we were off to Arapahoe, which was the topic of my blog post on Wednesday. After a long lunch break, we headed to Grand Island where two quilt shops were in our sights. An explosion of color, pattern and design are always how I perceive the Material Girl quilt shop. 20120817-125717.jpgOwner, Debbie, was not there on this day… Her hubby said she was already on the way to Colorado for the big quilt event in Loveland… I guess I’ll see her there, because I plan to go on Saturday with friends, Mark, Benita and Renata.
After spending quite some time choosing at Material Girl… We had just a few minutes to hit Nana’s Quilt Shop in downtown Grand Island. 20120817-125920.jpgThis shop specializes in the more primitive, and country style. Annie B was in heaven, for sure. After our quick tour of Nana’s… We discovered an awesome quilt shop, Heartland Antique Mall was just down the street. Fun, fun, fun!
Sadly, after the overnight stay, we headed west.
We only had time for one stop, so we made it count… The Quilt Rack in North Platte! 20120817-125939.jpgLisa DeBord is a good friend of ours, and her shop sells just about anything quilting related. She has lots of panels, in case you need a jumping off point. Also ther are batiks, novelty prints, all the latest from top designers, etc. We stayed until the very last minute we could, because I had to be home by 3pm to leave for a convention in Denver. We sure made every second count!
Hopefully, you and some good friends will plan a similar trip, and tell us about it!

 

 

Happy Quilting,
Fellow Quilter,
