Quilt Musings

Patriotic Duty!

After reading the column, right off the bolt,  by Alison Dea Bolt in the February/March 2009 issue of Quilter’s Newsletter, I think that it must be also be a “special form of patriotism” to  visit all the local quilt stores whenever we travel.  It not only provides us with more ideas and fabric that we can use in a lifetime.  It also serves as a “stimulus package” that might just lead us out of today’s economic woes.

I believe that as long as I have UFO’s, I will never die.   As of this date, I should have a lifespan of at least another 40 or 50 years.

So consider it your patriotic duty to visit as many quilt shops as you can while vacationing this year.  I certainly plan on doing my part!  On this trip I have visited Tomorrow’s Treasures Quilt Shop in Homosassa, FL and Sew Studio in Naples, FL.  Both were stores that I will definitely revisit when we come back here next year.

I’m sure our husbands will understand.

Lucia, Quilting from the Road!
