Today was field trip day for my neighborhood quilting group. Off to Vashon Island which is in the middle of Puget Sound, and accessible only by ferry boat. On Vashon is the Most.Wonderful.Quilt.Shop! "Island Quilter" is it's name. They must have one of the largest collections of the Fassett/Mably/Jacobs fabrics anywhere. This is a picture I took today of what I call the "Wall 'o Kaffe"
Kaffe & Brandon come yearly for workshops and stay on the Island. This year I am going to take the diamonds workshop. It's happening on my day off! I never get that lucky! I can also make the lecture, as well. There are going to be knitting workshops, a painting workshop, and a snowball quilt workshop, too.
If any of you are ever visiting Seattle, this is definitely a destination shop. I did some damage today. To do the diamonds quilt, for starters you need a big pile of half yard pieces...ie 20-22..I know there is more for the edges, too.. So, swell! One more thing to start.
I also came home with a brand new book...Guess who, Kathy & Sarah! It's beautiful!! Now, back to our regularly scheduled quilting...
