A Special Quilt In Florida

I have been really busy the last two weeks.  After New Year's, I helped my parents drive from Ohio down to Florida.  We had mostly dry roads all the way.  Once in Florida, Mom and I had lots of fun shopping at quilt shops.  It will take another post to tell you all about them.

I just picked out Rainbows End Quilt Shoppe  to tell you about first because a special lady, Nancy, shared her beautiful appliqued flower quilt with us.  It is all hand appliqued!  The stitching is just perfect.

Thank you so much Nancy for letting me share your wonderful quilt with us.

Please be sure to click on the pictures to see all the details.  The machine quilting is beautiful.  You could look at this quilt all day and see something different each time with all the different quilting techniques and different fabrics that are used.

I just love all the details and love that was put into making this quilt. 

Click on the picture above and check out the quilted snail above.  The snail just makes want to me smile!

 Now I have a rave review on this quilt shop.  Rainbows End Quilt Shoppe has 20,000 bolts of fabric.  Everything is beautifully displayed.  All the samples that are displayed are such an inspiration to quilters that are looking for a new project. If you're in Florida, this quilt shop is worth the drive to Dunedin--you will not be disappointed!

I just love visiting quilt shops and meeting new people.  In my next post I will share more quilt shops that are just as exciting to visit as Rainbows End.

Happy Quilting!

Rainbows End looks like an awesome quilt shop. Half the fun is just looking. Also, the detail in that quilt is amazing. Do you know what machine she used to quilt this? Love that little snail. How fun!

Sandi: I don't know what machine was used. Sorry I failed to say that Nancy had someone quilt it for her. It's sure is a beautiful quilt!
