Visiting The Quilt Box in Kentucky

Over the weekend I visited The Quilt Box in Dry Ridge, Kentucky.  The ladies there were very friendly and allowed me to take photos of their shop and the surrounding grounds, so I thought I would share them with you.

This room was filled mostly with reproduction fabrics.  The far wall and the wall to the right were full of beautiful batiks.

Here are the shelves in the same room looking at them from the opposite direction.  The number of bolts was overwhelming.

In the right of this photo is just a small fraction of their shirtings.  I'm not sure I've ever seen so many bolts of shirtings in once place before.

And they had Mettler thread which is my all time favorite for applique'.  This display is their 50 weight but they also carry 60 weight (which I prefer).  I love this display of little quilts.

This is their classroom.  Behind the bright quilt you can see that this was an old log cabin by the chink and mortar system they used to put the logs together.

The classroom looks inviting with this huge fireplace.  That is a Lori Smith pattern hanging on the mantel.

Upstairs there were quilts for sale.  They were displayed as if I'd stepped back in time.  There was lots of old furniture.

There's a twin iron bed and an old Singer treadle sewing machine.

The table to the left looked like it had just come from an old soda shoppe.

Love this old church pew and wooden baby cradle.

And, the painted wooden horse that looks like a quilt.

The grounds were just beautiful.  My husband had me walk around to the side of the shop to look at these flowers.  These are hollyhocks.  When I was very young, we used to pick a blossom and tie a long piece of grass around it about an inch from the top and pretend like it was a doll wearing a big flowing dress.

This deck out back and a picnic table out by the pond are there for shopper's use if you want to bring along a picnic lunch.

More beautiful flowers.

This was just a nice place to spend a few hours.

The Quilt Box has a Facebook page.  If you are ever in this part of the country, this shop is worth looking up.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
