Heavenly Patchwork Quilt Shop - Waconia, Minnesota
This shop had to be our first stop because Kay (the owner) is truly an angel...in every way...not only does she have a terrific shop...she is the one we subscribed to the Cobblestone BOM with. The QBees and I had such a great time this winter, working on our blocks...all of which was documented here on Dilly-Dally Days! She built such a valuable relationship with us...even though we are nearly 4,000 miles away...that two QBees signed up for their current BOM! It is pictured on the right in the photo below. I can't wait to see the finished ones by our QBees in Cordova!
This is just a taste of all the goodness found at Heavenly Patchwork! While there, a woman came in to show Kay two of her completed quilts...
She had made this for her parents in celebration of their 50th Wedding Anniversary!
The blocks that appear white in the first photo are actually antique white handkerchiefs. It was a beautiful quilt. Stunning!
This was the second quilt brought in by the same customer! It was great to watch Kay and her staff encourage this quilter in her efforts. What a caring and supportive place!
The Heavenly Patchwork crew has already begun working on their Minnesota Shop Hop projects as well. What creativity!
QBee Diane and Kay with the next BOMAnd after we had visited ... shopped ... visited ... shopped and visited some more ... Diane and I signed up for Sherri's (did I mention the designer of This n' That fame, Sherri Falls is Kay's daughter?) club called "Sweet Pickins"! It will begin in September...each month we'll receive a new unreleased pattern and fabric! We can't wait to tell the other QBees about it and hope that many of them will join us!
Our time with Kay in her shop was soooo enjoyable...she really is an angel! Thank you Kay for a wonderful afternoon!
