There are quilts on the walls!

This week we got quilts on both of the walls as you enter the store.  It is so funny to watch people walk, or drive, by and then stop to get a better look.  It is like they have never seen quilts, or 5 totally awesome longarm quilting machines.  We have been the topic of discussion for the strip mall.  It is so much fun telling people how huge quilting really is!  


We have all the fun options to play with.  The light kit is terrific.  And I am now completely in love with the hydraulic lift.  The first quilt has been quilted on our Freedom.  It was done by my hubby, it is the first quilt he has ever quilted and he did a fabulous job.

The quilts on the walls were all quilted either by my friend Sheri, of Maxine and Me Quilting, or by myself.  A huge thanks to Sheri for all the support she has given me!   Janice, of Anything But Boring loaned me the Medallion Star BOM Quilt for the APQS booth at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo and it is safely hanging in the showroom.  It has been so much fun having it back in my world for a little while.  Thanks to Mom for giving me a long-time loan of her Feathered Baskets quilt.  And Thanks to Dad for helping me come up with a way to easily hang the quilts. (The poor guys at Home Depot and Lowes may never get over my not traditional use of building supplies.)  My hubby is the best quilt hanging elf in the world! Without all of you, my walls, and my world, would be empty!
