Another Quilt Shop Stop: Bella Quilts

Here is another quilt shop that I stopped at on our way back from Tennessee.  This is Bella Quilts in Hamilton, Ohio.  They are working to put their fabrics on line so hopefully we will be able to go to and order from them soon.

Raven, the owner was kind enough to allow me to take photos for a blog post.  She also gave me a photocopy of a quilt using the Winterthur John Hewson panel, birds, and companion fabrics that I bought there.  She has an excellent selection of reproduction fabrics for those of us that like Civil War/reproduction fabrics.

I hope you can zoom in on the photos to get a look at the fabrics.  The first photo is just a random shot back into the shop.

Here are the repros.........  See the bolt that is at the right of the very first section?  That is the border used in the Ann Daggs quilt in Di Ford's new book Primarily Quilts.   On the bottom right shelf is the wavy red fabric from the Old Sturbridge Village Collection used in the skirt of the girl in the center of the Phebe quilt.  

And more repros......

And even more.....  There were some that I forgot to photograph.  In the bottom row just a bit to the left of center, the brown/red border print is the one used in the Rotherfield Grey quilt in Primarily Quilts.  

Can you tell that I really like this book?

The fabrics straight on are all batiks.  Over to the left below the window were Kansas Troubles.  

These were part of the sale fabrics.  I'm planning a day trip back to Ohio to spend more time at Bella Quilts and to stop at IKEA.


Thanks for stopping by!
