Yes, I went Back Up North to Chestertown, NY to Country Girl Quilt Shop where the quilters made Back Up North! Sweet quilt shop! And in case you haven’t been there yet, I took some pictures of the shop to give you an idea of what you’re missing! First off, the original shop was located on a side street just off Main, but now Nanci (owner) bought an old Main street home, rebuild it from top to bottom, inside and out, AND it’s gorgeous! Take a look . . . .
We’ll start with the sign, then the front of the shop . . . .
and now, moving inside, all these great room, lots of light, and of course, lots of everything quilters love – fabrics, notions, patterns, etc., etc.
AND here are three of the quilters that were making Back Up North this weekend. (two of them were with us for only a one day class – I’ll have to get their photos another time!)
First up is Sue – who is now a believer in Free Motion Quilting! You go Sue!
Next up is Rosemary – first time making a “large” project, and did great! (She’s normally a “bag” lady)
And Rosemary’s friend – Kathie! Also a newbie to this type of quilting.
BTW – BOTH Rosemarie and Kathie CAN do free motion quilting now – they had doubts, but no longer, they’re believers AND did a great job!
So, I’m signing off – must get ready another weekend – so stay tuned, more to come!
