Bonnie and Connie from Quilt Haven on Main in Hutchinson, MN did a trunk show at the Pinetree Patchworker's guild meeting last night.
Did I remember my camera?
No, I did not--my bad!
|Bonnie had some door prizes to give out--I won this kit!|
The shop is located in the same spot that used to house the Thimbleberries Studio. I've been to Quilt Haven and it's a wonderful shop--I can't wait to do some shopping there in August when I will be in Hutchinson. By the way, they have an awesome quilting space on the upper level with wonderful lighting---you and your friends can sew there for free!
|Last night my friend Marilyn gave me a bag filled with these little packets.|
They are for a Block of the Month she signed up for in 2004-2005.
Luckily for me, she has decided she won't be doing the blocks and passed them on to me!
Be still my heart!
|I had so much fun today going through all the fabrics. |
They are right up my alley, for sure!
|I probably won't be using the fabrics to make the Block of the Month blocks, but the patterns are going to be a lot of fun to read.|
There's a little history lesson attached to each block from many different eras of our country's past.
|A lot of the block patterns are pretty cool too. I'd like to make quilts out of several of them.|
Thanks Marilyn---you made my week!
|A few more pics from the Clemons gardens.|
One of the gardens was planted with all white flowers--very peaceful and beautiful!
This clematis was especially gorgeous and loaded with flowers.
|I had never seen double lilies before. They are so pretty--just a hint of pink at the edges of the petals.|
|Oops--this may have been from the yellow garden.|
I had never seen these double cone flowers before either--very fun!
|This is another plant I've never seen. None of us knew what it was and it wasn't labeled.|
