I'll tell ya ... when I got to Front Porch Quilt Shop in Walker on our way to Itasca Park last month, it was hard not to want to pull up a rocker, sit back and relax! So inviting! And then ... you get to go inside the store. Oh ya ...
Well you know if they have wool I'm hooked! Jana had some terrific projects ... some from designers I haven't seen before.
I loved all of these small wool projects that were variations of quilts. Charming! We're fingercrossing that we'll have patterns in time for the Minnesota State Fair.
They were busy getting ready for Quilt Minnesota and had some great projects ... like this quilt. They also had an area that had their past projects from the shop hop ... it was fun to see what they created with it. I still love the year it was blue and white Winter fabric!
Look at these darling little aprons! I want a little girl in my life so I can make some. They had fun bags, too.
I loved this idea. They made a quilt top into a curtain to hide their office area. Anyone could do this ... maybe to hide your sewing space?
And of course ... it wouldn't be northern Minnesota without snowmen and mittens!
Lots and lots and LOTS of kits! I'm kicking myself for not getting this one.
Look at the quilting on this ... love it!
One of the things I like is when quilt shops in an area get together to sponsor great events. They certainly know how to keep quilters busy in their neck of the woods!
I had a great time visiting Front Porch Quilts. If you're going leaf peeping this Fall ... or snowmobiling during the Winter ... stop in. Maybe sit on the porch for a bit!
