That’s right folks. One week from today (actually one week from 12 hours ago) I will be boarding a bus in Madison, WI to travel down to Houston, Texas for the Quilt Festival! I can’t wait! I know many think I’m crazy for taking a bus – but seriously – this is going to be amazing! It’s a quilter bus! We’ll be stopping at quilt shops every day on our way down! The organizer, Cheryl, is fabulous and has done this MANY times … I just know it’s going to be fabulous.
The cherry on top – I just have to get on and off the bus whenever she tells me too – I don’t have to plan a thing, make a decision about anything, or do anything but sleep and relax. SO READY!
Below I’ve listed the shops we’ll be stopping at our way down. If this is your LQS please let me know if there’s something special there I should look for or collection on my way!
Our host shop – Quintessential Quilts in Madison and Reedsburg
- Monday: Peace & Applique Quilt Shop Rochester, IL
- Tuesday: Pinwheel Fabrics Alexander, AR
- Wednesday: It’s a Stitch Humble, TX and Preview Show at Quilt Festival
- Thursday: Quilt Festival
- Friday: Stitchin’ Heaven, Quitman, TX
- Saturday: Jackman’s Fabrics, St Louis, MO
And don’t worry – I’ll be blogging about my journey all week next week! It will be like you’re riding along right with me (well – perhaps I’ll be slightly edited).
Stop back tomorrow for a guest post from my friend and talented quilter, Trish Frankland of Quilt Chicken, who gives you some tips on what to pack for Festival!
