If any of you live in Western Washington, be sure you make a visit to Gossypium Quilt Shop in Issaquah. It's in Gilman Village, and I have to tell you it is probably the happiest quilt shop I have ever been in my entire life!!!

Not a single bolt of dark and dreary fabrics, all bright and cheery, colorful, vibrant.....can you be in love with a quilt shop?

I signed up to get the Gravity quilt kit from them and picked up the Super Sidekick that is needed for it. It's going to be a long month waiting....I'm so excited!

I told MM that it's a good thing it's 50 miles away! Good thing he has no clue what I do while he is sleeping during the day!

It's always good to have a road trip destination!

Nevermind. I just gooled and found pictures. It looks real pretty in there and I love the windows.

There are windows on three sides of it!!! I'm sure there are 3x more bolts of fabric in there than there is in the shop I normally go to. And oh so pretty!!!

Oh, I may have bought a new bag pattern.....oh, and some material too :D

Unfortunately my relatives out that way live in eastern Washington. But maybe I could persuade them to move ....

They will send it in the mail!!!! It's $179 and includes the book which I looked at today. It was really nice! That quilt has over 100 colors in it!!! I also picked up the needed ruler, I already had the other.
