Road trip finds....

Since I didn't get to go to the big quilt show shindig in Houston this year (which is this week), I did the next best thing....went on a road trip here in the state collecting fabrics and other whatnots.  I have to say, it was pretty darn consoling, LOL.  I went to Rabbit's Lair up in Rogers, Arkansas, yesterday which is about a 3.5 hour drive.  Got to see the shop owner, Mary Schopp, and see her shop for the first time.  I've met her several times as a vendor at local events here, but had never made the trek to her ship.  I found her back in her office area and surprised her, it was a really fun visit to her place.  I bought yards and yards of fabric (see below), as well as some books, etc.  And Mary, being the wonderful person she is, showed us around the shop, talking with us about things, etc.  A wonderful trip!

OK, enough of my blabbering, here's the fabrics that I bought:


  1. Great finds you came home with too!! I am especially drawn to the plaids. Do you have a project in mind or just adding to your stash?

  2. Am thinking of doing some applique with those eventually. But right now, they sit happily in my stash awaiting their day. :)

  3. I am vicariously living through you and your quilting adventures :-) There's only one real quilting fabric shop in the country as far as I know. It's wonderful to see your fabric finds and work. I'm sure they will be made into gorgeous applique pieces. Usually I choose modern/retro prints or solids, but your choices of rich designs are intriguing and inspiring.
