Bound for Atlanta!

Piper1 Both this adorable Hunky Dory baby quilt and me!   I'm leaving next week with my brothers to attend my Dad's retirement party and will get to meet my newborn niece, Piper, and present this quilt to her while I am visiting.  My quilter said that every person should have a quilt with Minkee on the back - I think I agree.


I'm going to mail the quilt ahead of me so it won't take up room in my suitcase.   How does a gal from Seattle pack for HOTlanta?   Plus, I may need some extra room in my suitcase, as I've been promised a shopping trip to Little Quilts to spend my birthday gift certificate!

  2. Have fun in Atlanta...I've always wanted to visit the Little Quilts shop...their books are really the ones that got me quilting back in the mid-late 90's!

  6. Hi! I'm Becky and I live in a suburb just north of Atlanta. It has been really hot here this week. Hot and humid. With the heat index, it's been near 100 degrees. Pack cool clothing and sandals :) Enjoy Little Quilts! It's a fabulous quilt shop. We are truly blessed in the metro Atlanta area with great quilt shops.What part of the city will you be visiting?

  7. Gorgeous quilt! Do you want me to send you all my mosquito stuff? I didn't need it in Minnesota, maybe it will bring you a little luck!
    You'll love Little Quilts ~ it's absolutely wonderful. Have fun! And if you like more contemporary fabrics and have a chance to get to a second shop, I loved Intown Quilters. I loved this shop a lot. A LOT. (www.intownquilters.com/)
    Have fun and have a safe trip!

  8. Hope the Hunky Dory quilt was a big hit, I agree, everyone should own at least one quilt with Minkee as backing, all ages! Will be eager to hear what you bought at Little Quilts!
