Georgia's largest Quilt Shop

 We were recently in Atlanta Georgia where we rented a car and drove to Florida.  Before we got out of  Georgia entirely I saw a sign on the west side of I-75 South luring me to visit Georgia's largest Quilt Shop.

It was only a short detour and we needed to stop for lunch anyway.

This is a huge store with many departments within the shop and a great selection in each department.

Since we were flying home I resisted the temptation of buying too much fabric to bring home.

I did however find a piece of software that will help me embroider larger designs by splitting the embroidery design in half and making use of the giga hoop.

Another new quilt shop

 The search for good quilt shops in this area continues.  I've found another shop - quite different from the others, located in Pickering, Art of Fabric.

One day I will take a class here, I'm looking at the class that teaches the technique of free motion stitching techniques on the petal of the tulips below.  This shop specializes in a very artistic style quilting.

Carlyle's quilt

   The quilt is done...
       and the quilt is delivered.

The colours are bright...and the detail is a bit hidden in the colours.  There are little paw prints in the borders - you can see them in this post.

I loved putting the label together for our little granddaughter.
