I was in Missouri last week taking care of my 6 (yes I said "six") grandchildren. ( and that is only half of them). I had the opportunity to take a few hours respite. I drove to Eudora, KS to check out the LQS there called Quilting Bits and Pieces. It was a lovely shop, and oh the applique. They specialize in embroidery and applique. The owners have written several books and the quilts on displays were so fabulous. They have a great fabric collection, and lots of never seen before (by me that is) notions. I had a great time.
I bought the book that has the patterns for these Christmas quilts. Just gorgeous!
