Machine Quilting by Iva's Quilt Shop


I enjoyed my visit to The Cherry Pit quilt shop and bought a nice little bag of goodies.  Then I found a comment on my blog from Linda, The Quilted Pineapple, telling me that Machine Quilting by Iva's quilt shop was not to be missed, and she was right.  This is the view from the door. 




Linda mentioned that there were lots of pre-cuts.  I could never have imagined that there could be so many charm packs, jelly rolls and layer cakes all under one roof.




And there were more pre-cuts on the next aisle.  At the far left you can see they were on both sides of the aisle.




This was one of the separate rooms.  You can see more pre-cuts.   There were more in this room that I didn't photograph.




More fabric and patterns with lots of samples.




More fabric.  I love the fall table topper in the lower part of this photo.  I bought the pattern for it.




A different view into that same room.  There were buttons, more patterns, and some small quilt hangers.




Here is a close up of the cross stitched pillow behind the cutting counter.




And....I have no shame.  This lovely quilt is hanging in the bathroom.  I used to have a piece of that batik in the border, and I just love what they did with it.




The quilting on this quilt is just gorgeous.  Iva has a long arm machine at her home and does quilting there.


These guys were standing in the corner.  Even the bathroom had lots of eye candy.




This is what Machine Quilting by Iva's shop looks like.   I mentioned that it would be nice if they had a web site, and they said they plan to work on one soon.  In the meantime, they told me that they would be glad to ship anything so if you are looking for something, just give them a call.   After looking at these photos, I realized that I didn't take photos of the 2 rooms that were on the opposite side of the store.  

Thanks to Iva for allowing me to take these photographs to put on my blog so you can see the inside of her shop. 




One day after it rained I looked out and saw this rainbow over the mountains.  




Thanks for stopping by today!  

Hope you are finding some time to stitch!

Iva's is one of the best shops I've ever visited -- enough quilting candy to last you a long time!! Next time you motor down this way, you need to stop by London and visit!! I'm just a few miles off I-75!!
Blessings,

It hurts me the favor. I become very jealous of you American people. You are wonderful shops where you buy.
