Road Trip to Shipshewana

Earlier this week, a friend asked if I would like to take a road trip to Shipshewana.  I've written about this little town up in northern Indiana before.  This is where we go twice a year for our Dear Jane retreat.  The town was beautiful, and there were pretty flowers everywhere.

These little flower carts seemed to be all over town.  This is the one in front of the Blue Gate Restaurant.

The Farmstead was beautiful as usual.

There was good food.  We also went to Rise 'N Roll Bakery, but I was too busy eating my donut to take a photo.

And, of course there was fabric.  Here is a view into Yoder's fabric section.

We saw beautiful quilts.  I just love this twisted bargello.  It reminds me that I have a twisted bargello wall hanging in similar colors that needs to be quilted.

This is a nice combination of Civil War fabrics.  I have a few of the fabrics from this quilt in my stash.   I really like the borders on this quilt.

There is even log cabin cheater cloth and a lot of nice solid fabrics for those of you that want to just add a border and quilt.  I'm thinking that this would make a great backing, too.

Those of you that have been to Lollys know that there is always lots of gorgeous fabric there.  This is the usual display of Kaffe Fassett fabric.  The shot cottons are in that case you see to the left of the photo.  On the back of this display is the Kaffe stripes.

But now there is a Kaffe and Brandon wall.  Just look at the color!!!!

There is Civil War fabric as usual.  There is a nice selection upstairs as well as downstairs in A Little Bit of Lollys.  I did do a little "fishing" in the boat.  I was too busy and didn't remember to get a photo.

This is only a part of the Civil War fabrics.

I searched for quite awhile for some of these fabrics and could have found them right here.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

And always remember.....
