Pieceful Heart


Week before last I found myself with a car on a day Oscar and I are normally stranded at home. So instead of going to the grocery store or the playland Oscar insisted we head out to Lisle, IL to check out a new (to us) quilting shop. Good boy! The store is Pieceful Heart and I loved it! My new favorite. Everyone was so nice and they carried so many beautiful things… Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, and many others. A bunch of the things I have on my eQuilter wishlist were there and I got to drool over them live and in person. I have no fabric budget left whatsoever but I couldn’t help myself. Just a few fat quarters to tide me over.



In other quliting news… I finished basting my Plain Spoken quilt at my parents’ house this weekend. Now I just need to finish some of the other projects I have piling up (I’m always saying this!) and then I can start quilting it. I can’t wait to have it finished and have no quilts in progress…so I can start another one of course.

And check out this great racetrack quilt Kerrie made for her son!

    Hey – thanks for the link! I love buying fat quarters, they always make me feel like I haven’t bought anything yet I’ve bought enough to keep me happy.. I can only imagine being in a store that sells Amy Butler fabric, I’ve only ever ordered it online. That would be heaven..

    Trying not to drool…. trying….not….to….drool… What a fantastic haul! I can’t wait to see what you do with these, especially the bull’s-eye.

    I love Peaceful Heart also! They have the most beautiful material. And the staff is so friendly and helpful. I found out about it through a friend who took a couple quilting classes there. She was really happy with her classes and made some great quilts.
