I have quilt shops I love in my area. One is only 10 minutes away and the other is in the city. They are quaint and small and friendly. But in KY, quilt shops are HUGE. I couldn't believe the selection! I visited 2 shops while I was there. One was in a non-descript small little mall and I might have walked right past it - but I'm glad I stepped in. The other was a further drive and was having a fat quarter sale on thousands of fat quarters at $1.50 each!!! Too bad I wasn't in town for that one. I did manage to purchase some fabric for my applique sampler quilt and I had great fun doing it.
