A Surprising Day

Woke up this morning and on the road by 7am. We drove about 215 miles to Hannibal, MO. From there we drove MO HWY 36 Quilt Shop. 11 hours and many shops later we pulled back into the drive way. We are planning on finishing it up Friday.

We made it thru the last 8 shops. Only 2 weren’t available. We even drove down gravel roads to someone’s house, thru small towns where the population was only 300. Another shop was in the building in a lady’s backyard, next to her hair salon. Door was open and we started looking around and no one was there. Building was empty, so we left without fabric. The 2nd shop we didn’t buy from was closed. Not too bad.One of my favorite shops was in Hannibal, the Hickory Stick Quilt Shop. My reason was she had something made out of most of her fabric so you could see them sewn into something. This is what I bought there.

Aren’t they so cute?

Another favorite is Sew Creative. She had such a wonderful supply different and unusual fabrics.

Now here is the rest of my finds.

Friday we start again in Chillicothe, MO and work our way to Independence, MO.

Tomorrow a trip to the zoo and the rest of the week sewing.

Stay safe out there.

  1. Wow! You are a dedicated fabric finder. You found some beauties on your quest – I love the dog and cat panels.
    The ‘waiting for the wife’ tableau is great but he looks happier than the average husband probably does in that situation.
