THIS is my idea of the perfect Quilt Shop ~
This picture is found in the Better Homes & Garden
(year 2000)
The name of the shop is
and is owned by Deb Coates...it's located in Battle Ground Washington...
Okay...the things( among MANY) that I LOVE LOVE about this shop,
(never being there personally,
but just drooling over the pictures
in this poor, dog-eared & bedraggled issue of mine)...
~the White-Washed wood floors
~Bright, Natural light
~Old-timey cupboards, displays
~Bolts & Bolts of Homespuns, Plaids & Checkered fabrics...
(my 2nd fav...repro 1800's are my passion)
...housed in a renovated Church, this could possibly be thee best place for a Quilt Shop...
i mean, what better building could house something that we hold SO close to our hearts, than
a building that was erected for the sole (or should I say "soul"?) purpose of bringing people together under one roof, to gather like-minded individuals & share our stories....
Not unlike lovers of Needlework
( fabrics, threads, wools, sewing items, etc...)
We gather together to create beautiful things that we just HAVE to share with our friends...
(don't quilt? I can show you how...can't stitch? please...look at how easy this is....)


I'm hoping to purchase some buttercream-colored paint...
the floors will be first, then onto the trim...
I'm hoping to keep my little shop here on our Farm
as a destination...
someplace that many will continue to want to come...
to gather, create & share...
I've been blessed these past (almost) 3 years to have Friends visit with me,
and tell me how fortunate I am to have a shop...
I know I am.
I am because you continue to come...
~May all of your best wishes & dreams come true for you in 2009~
Blessed be,

Oh, that picture is making me drool! I can just envision a shop with quilting and stitching together under one roof! Pure Heaven! You have made me want to pull out my sewing machine and get busy on several things!

I wish your shop was closer to me! I would be there everyday!

and I would love to see you everyday, my friend!!!!

Sherry said...

My Dear Dear Friend the pics of your shop draw me in as Pure Heaven more so than the ones you posted from the magazine!!!!!!
BUT I know,the OCD kicks in & change is on the way!!!! It STILL always ends up the place I want to be though!!!!!!

Oh wow! What a neat neat shop!! There's an old country church just recently closed, again, over near my folks...wish I could just pick it up and move it down here for my own little shop!
One of these days I'm gonna hop in my jeep & come visit your shop!!

I would sooo love to visit your shop someday!!!! Cottons was a wonderful shop-but she closed a couple years ago. So sad!!!! Another gal reopened it-now called The primitive Thimble. Nearly as wonderful-maybe even a bit more primitive. It's about 200miles from me ......I so yearn to get there more often.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh...I was in Battleground a couple of months ago and would have gone there if I'd known!
Someday I'll make it to your sweet little shop too.

Battle Ground? How did I never know? That is just a hop away from me. I think I'll have to plan me a trip soon...
