While driving around, we found a few quilts that were painted on rocks. I found them fascinating. We talked with the lady that painted the one on the left. She told us that she re-paints the rock every spring. Quite a feat for a wheel-chair bound lady!
We went into a few quilt stores while travelling in Newfoundland. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of all of them. However I did get a few pictures of each of the stores where I found puffin fabric!
This first one is “Stitches from the Rock.” It is a small store on the Bonavista peninsula. I think I would have missed it if we weren’t looking specifically for it!
In Gander, there was a delightful store, “The Fabric Shop.” The ladies were super friendly! The store certainly had everything a quilter could need or want! A multitude of quilts on display provided great eye candy!
Fiber Lily near St. Johns, was by far my favourite. Perhaps because I was secretly hunting for a quilt store that was friendly, inviting and offered classes for the new quilter. My sister-in-law is interested in starting a beginning class in the fall. I’m pretty sure that Fiber Lily will meet her needs.
Fibre Lily is where
I bought my husband bought the 2 kits. The row-by-row from last year is a fantastic picture of St. John’s Narrows with an iceberg … and since we had been chasing around looking for them, it was a “must buy.” It will make a nice memory!
I have done a bit of quilting since I’ve been home, but no finishes … hopefully next week I’ll be able to report some progress.
