American Quilting

The other day I went to an adorable quilty shop called  American Quilting...


Amy is the owner and she has just the cutest quilt shop!


This is what it looks like right when you walk in through the door...


And then it is so much eye candy wherever you look!










These are just a few of the fun fabrics and quilts on display there...


Cute huh?...
The reason that I went there was to take in arm loads of my quilts for Amy to hang in the shop.
She had asked me if I could bring them in and leave them there a little while for a special "Bee in my Bonnet" trunk show...


My trusty sidekicks Nanette and Rae Ann met me there to help carry in my quilts and patterns and of course to do a little shopping!
Afterwards we enjoyed chatting over lunch.
Aren't they just the cutest friends ever?...I love this picture that I took of the two of them!

Below are my quilts that are now hanging there all together...



















So if you are in the area of Orem...and would like to visit my quilts up close and personal...head on over to American Quilting. (Click to go to their website for directions directions)
My quilts will be hanging there until February 11.
Have a quilty kind of day!

Oh I wish I was able to come for a visit and see these precious quilts up close. But heavens, in the Northeast and snowed in up to our armpits ---- I will have to enjoy them thru your eyes. Thank you for a special premier showing.

You're so lucky Lori -- you live in quilt shop mecca and have fun friends there too! Your quilts are amazing -- you've done so much work. I can't wait until market to hit up all the fab quilt shops out there!!!

Linda said...

What a lovely selection that you have chosen to show. If I lived closer I sure would stop by and admire. I noticed the first rack of fabric was Hooty Hoot by Riley Blake. I have just ordered this fabric. Coinsidence or What?

Linda Ruthie said...

I am in awe! What an amazing collection of quilts. I love seeing aprons in a few of them. Aprons and quilts together? Just wonderful.
The shop pictures make me long for what my sewing buddy and I call 'field trips'. I'm off to send her an email and see if we can plan an outing later this week.

Nedra said...

OK- I think I needed to be the 3rd assistant. Makes me smile just to think of you girlers hangin' together.

What a great idea! It would be awesome to see your quilts up close and personal. It looks like a fabulous quilt shop.

Shannon said...

I wish I could come down. I would love to see your quilts in person. Someday! I love all of your quilts. Is the Valentine's quilt new? I don't remember seeing it before. It is so much fun!

Kimberly said...

I just love all your quilts so very much! I have two patterns but my work on Grandma's Kitchen has been at a standstill for months since my mom's cancer diagnosis. Maybe I'll bring a block along to next week's chemo treatment.

Thank you for your wonderful blog... your pictures always cheer me up!

Oh boy I wish I weren't on the other side of the world! How amazing is that shop?? I love how the fabrics are displayed on the cupboard and aren't they beautiful as well? Oh to have such a shop here. Your quilts are all divine, so much work and all so perfect. I'm sure people will flock there to view them. Well done.

Martha said...

WOW! Love your quilts!! Wish they were going to be hanging up when I get there in April.

Micki said...

Your quilts are wonderful. It would be lovely to see them in person.

I'm always excited when you post, I know you'll have something wonderful!! And once again you did not fail me!! Your quilts are more than wonderful!! So sad I live too far away to come see them!!

Pots and Pins said...

Yippie! I'm going to be in SLC next week and will make a point of going to see your quilts - will be so FUN for me! I covet them, you know, every one! My grandbaby is sick, my daughter is at her wit's end, my mom is not doing well and my sister just announced her daughter is getting married in MARCH! So I'm going to be busy but just the thought of stealing away to see your quilts makes me WANT to get on that plane! xo, Nan

Creative Breathing said...

What heirloom treasures you have created. I held my breath with the reveal of each quilt as I scrolled down, each one more wonderful than the next. Thank you so much for sharing them all. What a treat! Elizabeth

Heartsdesire said...

Would love to see your trunk show, but unfortunately, I'm to far away. (Southern Vancouver Island.) However, after seeing them on your blog, I can see that they are awesome. Also wish I had a quilt store such as yours, near me. Oh well, thankfully, there are wonderful online quilt stores to shop in.
