Kansas Shop Hop - Part 9

Continuing on to Salina and The Quilting Bee. This was a quilt in the front window. I really really like it, and when I asked about it inside, I was told they needed some pink quilts to decorate their window and had used this one in the window because the town was having a "pink" contest for. It is an older quilt and if anyone knows anything about this pattern please let me know.


The ladies here were also terrific and helped me find a pattern suitable for the fabric below.

I was not prepared to find fabric like this in the middle of Kansas. This is from Westex and is printed in Japan. They had 8 pieces, one of which didn't go, but the other pieces I bought enough of to make this pattern hopefully. I know this picture doesn't do this justice, but it sure looks good to me.

Some samples of other quilts. I know I took more pictures in this store, but I must have had a empty battery because I don't find them.




We drove through the neighborhood close to the downtown area where the quilt store was located. Look at these gorgeous homes.



This is what all of the streets looked like in this neighborhood. Loved all the trees.





This one was on a corner...just gorgeous!

And that was all of Salina. Next up, heading back to Wichita with a stop at Newton.

Hi Perry...the Japanese fabrics are wonderful. I love the Diawabo taupes and have quite a few in my collection. You'd better watch out wearing those orange Crocs around OKC, you might be taken for a Cowboy fan ;o) GO POKES!

If you want more of the daiwabos, you can get them at Pinwheels on-line shop. They are in Croton-on-Hudson, NY and come up if you Google Pinwheels Croton. I've shopped there for about five or six years now.
