I just have to BRAG over my local quilt shop
Plain and Simple quilt shop in apex nc.
They got picked as top ten quilt store in the country with better homes and gardens magazine!
and it's such a fun unique little store, it's an old house, with a hallway and regular rooms, fabrics displayed in little antique furniture and shelves, and mostly sticking with reproductions/ civil war and victorian fabrics.
Sharon- the store owner has been so nice to me when I first showed her my quilts when I got my long arm and she has given me the most referrals and personal business.
So last week she called me that she had two quilts for me to do, and when I got there at the end of the week and saw what quilt it was! I was floored and honored, it's a duplicate of the quilt in the BH & G magazine, BH & G keep the quilt that's pictured in the magazine so the owner had to make another one to display at the store and she asked me to quilt it. I know she wanted to do it herself but she ran out of time. She gave me sketches and a photo copy of the original and I tried the best I could to copy that.... hope she likes it :-)
