Happy Local Quilt Shop Day!

Did you know that today (Saturday, January 26, 2019) is Local Quilt Shop Day?  This celebration of local quilt shops happens annually on the fourth Saturday of January.  I live in a large metro area and am fortunate to have several shops within an hour's drive. I visited one of my two local favorites today.  Quilt Patch Fabrics is in Stallings, NC with a good selection and friendly staff. I picked up these beauties:

All three are pink batiks by Island Batiks.  I have a plan for them in the near future!


  1. It was great meeting you today! Looking forward to seeing what you make with those pretty pinks!

    1. It was great meeting you as well! Thanks for your help! I realized when I got in my car that I hadn't asked your name. You are showing up as a no-reply commenter so I cannot reply to you via email.

  2. I didn’t know! I will have to tell my local fabric shop about it for next year 😉
    I love pink! Your Batik selections are so pretty. I look forward to see what you are going to do with them!

  3. I didn't know about this either! But I am often (maybe too often, LOL) at my LQS!

  4. Ohhh pretty! Looking forward to seeing what your plans are with these.
