Visit from Kansas

My good friend Kathy, that lives in Kansas, blew into town on Friday a couple of weeks ago, and we got off to an early start at Panera's with some coffee and bagels. On our way to some of the quilt stores in the area.

For some reason I have these pictures out of order, but this is the cutest quilt. Saw it at Sooner Quilts in Guthrie, OK.

Here is Kathy with Michelle, the owner of Sooner Quilts, discussing I am not sure what, lol. Kathy looks llike she has had a hard night, doesn't she, lol. Not sure what we were drinking, probably coffee.

Some of the samples

More samples. Michelle doesn't have a web site yet so I can't give you a url. But if there is something you see that you would like to have I am sure she will mail it to you if you call her.

We went to The Savage Quilter in Oklahoma City. It is a fairly new store, but Debby, the owner, has done a lot with it in a short time. The quilt on the wall is a Christmas one from Posssibilities that has been around for a long time, but it is a classic, and she will kit it for you.

Hmm, Kathy looks like she finally woke up, or combed her hair, not sure which, lol.

I didn't take any more pictures this trip, we had a lot of talking to catch up on and she had to get back to Kansas. But both of us had a good visit, and it is always good to see her. She makes me laugh a lot! I am going to try to get up there this month for a weekend I hope/ Lots of good quilt stores around Wichita where she lives.

UPDATE: I just found out there is a Shop Hop going on around Wichita Kansas this weekend and I called Kathy and am headed up there for that. Will pretend I am a Sharon wannabee and will take lots of pictures, lol, but they won't be as good as hers I am sure.

I liked today's post. I managed to visit Sooner Quilts when I was in town in July and really liked it. The outside doesn't LOOK like a quilt store but the inside sure does. I can't wait to go back because they were so nice and had such a good selection.

I swung by Savage Quilter, too. I really enjoyed it and plan to go back, next time. That is a pretty easy location for me to get to. I like their newsletter. Also went by Quiltworks, as always.

My grandfather built a portion of Mercy hospital (see in the background of your first picutre) and seeing the picture brought back fond memories.

Thanks for these shop pics. I am avoiding shops because they tend to make me want to buy, but I just love being surrounded by fabric and quilts, etc.
Your shop hop sounds like fun - have a great time. I look forward to joining you virtually.

You're going on a shop hop? Perry, Perry ... what are we going to do with you? LOL. Seriously, have a grand time! Shop hops are for serious shopping!

Hope you have a wonderful time this week-end. There's only one Sharon, that's for sure (and she's pappazazi) LOL But, I'm sure your pics will be great & can't wait to see them! Enjoy!
