But that's not what you want to know, is it? You want to hear about Jane's Fabric Patch, the quilt shop we visited in Tillamook.
Here's how it looks as you approach the front door. (I'll bet you were considering these colors for your next paint job, weren't you?)
Of course, it had its own quilt block as a part of the Tillamook County Quilt Trail.
Here's how the place looks on the inside. Lots, and lots, and lots of fabric. Literally piled high with fabric.
There was something for everyone here.
I'm always won over by a good supply of stripes and polka dots.
This being a house, the displays were in different rooms. There may have been some things upstairs, even, but I didn't think to look until after I'd left. The stairs were not obvious.
In the back, there was a huge and brightly lit classroom.
There I found a nice display of fabrics and sewing machines all on sale.
Did I say there was something for everyone here? There was. Looking for flannels? Take your pick. These were all flannels. I don't know that I've ever seen such a nice variety.
The walls of this room were lined with beautiful quilts. Of course, I noticed this quilt in the Amish style right away.
There was a whole room with nothing but holiday fabrics.
And another room for yarns and knit cro-sheen. Sometimes it's hard to find such a nice variety of colors in knit cro-sheen...at least, I've had a hard time finding them.
Another whole room was filled with books...
...and patterns. This display turns like the pages of a book, and there were six "pages" with patterns on both sides. I think she had more patterns than I do at home, which is saying something.
I've been limiting my fabric buying because I'm running out of space in my fabric bins. Nevertheless, I did pick up a couple of yards of this one.
I was needing a border fabric for my July NewFO project, which is the table runner below. I have that red with black polka dots, but I didn't have a good floral for the border. I think the contrast of the two colors of polka dots will be very cute. I might add a narrow border of the red with black first. Or maybe just red. Or maybe...
This was my second visit to this quilt shop, the first being before I started blogging. On both occasions, I enjoyed my visit very much, but found the store uncomfortably crowded with fabric displays. (Yes, a quilter complaining about too much fabric.) Now ordinarily, I don't think it's possible to put too much fabric in a fabric store...until there is no room to back up and look at things. I was having a hard time on both visits standing back and looking at the fabrics on the interior displays. One finds oneself standing at the ends of the aisles and bending or stooping to see what's what, potentially even sitting on the floor to get a good look. Nevertheless, I would encourage you to stop in if you find yourself in Tillamook. I give them four rotary cutters out of five. This store will definitely delight the heart of any quilter.
