One Quilt Place is located in Fredricksburg, Texas and if you've not been there, it's worth a trip. Fredricksburg is a little German settlement town, nestled in the Texas hill country, famous for it's peaches and charming main street shopping:
I love history and there's a Museum of the Pacific War there, as well as a beautiful Wildflower Seed Farm that has the best fresh peach ice cream:
But today we're going to take a tour of their quilt shop. Last year they moved their little quilt shop to a new location with lots of room for expansion. It's tucked alongside a little country road so you'll want to use your GPS to find it, but it'll be worth it!
They have a retreat cottage:
And a studio:
That flanks the quilt shop:
This is an amazing quilt shop:
I've found that all quilt shops have their own personality and fabrics they specialize in, but I've never been in a larger one and they have just about anything and everything here:
Tone on tones
Lots of landscape fabrics to choose from:
This is only a little of their wool selection:
They have western prints:
A wide selection of patriotic fabrics:
As well as a big corner of 30's prints :
You could drown in their choices of Civil War reproduction and Thimbleberry type fabrics. I couldn't even get them all in one photo. There's another wall to the right:
And if you need a quilt for a baby or a child, inspiration abounds here:
They had lots of samples sewn up - these used panels and simple strips to make cute quilts for kids:
Just the patterns alone could keep you here for hours:
And I wanted to browse their book selection, but I had to get back on the road:
My SIL fell in love with the Garden Delights line a few weeks ago and ordered it online when we were all visiting my in-laws a few weeks ago. I sent her this picture:
They have the whole line if she needs more. And I sent this to a friend because it reminded me of her, but I forgot to jot down the line and now she wants some of it.
It is really hard to control yourself in this store, because there is temptation around every corner. And I caved:
I was pretty good and just picked up some basics to add to my stash, some of them from the sale section:
Whenever I pull into the parking lot, "Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!" immediately begin to endlessly play in my head. Those of you of a certain age may remember that line from a tv show called "Lost in Space" that was popular in the 70's. It is very applicable in this situation because there is something for everyone in this shop and I dare you to walk out empty handed!
