A Visit to The Cherry Pit

When I found out that we were fairly close to The Cherry Pit Quilt Shop and that they had been named one of Quilt Sampler's Top 10 Shops in 2005, I put them on my list of places to see this week.  This shop was well worth the visit. 

The outside of the shop looked inviting with the Cherry Pit on the front of the building and a pretty fall wreath on the door. 

And the cute window display....

I love these huge containers of flowers all over the streets.

And the inside was everything I'd hoped it would be.  Of course there was lots of fabric, but there were also lots and lots of shop samples. 

These quilts were in their classroom.

This quilt was pieced by Angela that works at the shop.  It is called Four Seasons at Minglewood and is a new block of the month they are starting.  It is just gorgeous and was oh so tempting. 

Next  was the Christmas room with more samples and a nice selection of fabrics.

I love a quilt shop that has a bed inside where quilts are displayed.  This shop not only had one bed....

They had two beds.

I love The Great Pumpkin quilt on the bed and the Anniversary Tea quilt on the wall.  These quilts are available on their web site as either block of the month programs or patterns.

Lots of eye candy in this shop.

This room had a huge display of tea towels ready for applique' or any kind of decorating and lots of towels with examples of ways to add a little applique' or a border print of fabric.

As I started to leave I looked behind me, and these 2 characters were sitting in the corner. They reminded me a lot of Bert and Ernie.

Thanks to Jane, the owner for allowing me to take these photos for my blog so you all can see some of the goodies in her shop. You can visit their web site here.  Many of the things you see in my photos are Cherry Pit exclusives. 

This big container of flowers was across the street from the shop, and I couldn't resist taking a photo.  I love how they have used red, pink, lavender and green together in this container. 

The leaves are turning more each day we are here.  The view from my porch is mostly green, but it is still breathtaking. 

What?  You are wondering if I bought anything with all of the temptation at The Cherry Pit.  Of course.  It's nearly dark so I'll take photos and post them tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by today!
