Do you have a bucket list?

If so, place Olde World Quilt Shoppe on won't be disappointed.

I spoke with one of blog readers today, my friend whom I just have not met yet.  She mentioned that this shop is on her list of places to visit.  She went on to mention that she thinks she like to make everything that I have posted.....I'm of like mind! I can picture this long pillow on my black bench.

Piecing and applique, a winning combination.

I was happy to visit my Tidings of Joy pillow, and a few of my other designs.

I love this bottom bird, investigating the red button.  This little quilt looks easy and is so sweet.



It would not be possible to leave empty handed......So many charming projects to choose from.


Simple, but so delightful!

Houses and stars......two of my favorite.

I fell in love with this snow banner hanging from the mantel.....

...and also this fall banner hung on a stick.

I purchased this pattern a few years ago at Country Threads......I have placed it as priority on my to do list.

I've admired this combination for quite some time......the chubby bird is so cute.

There were kits for this one which includes all of the heart buttons.

More inspiration tomorrow.


  1. I love that fat bird on the star. There are so many lovely designs here. I have a bucket list of dogs I want to adopt :-) a boston terrier, a corgi, yellow labs...

  2. We travel to AZ every year in the winter and have a place in Surprise, AZ. This shop is always on my list to visit every year as it is wonderful. Can't go back to WI without at least one visit and so much inspiration plus packages.

  3. I am in TOTAL agreement with you and your blog reader - I absolutely love every single picture you have posted and I'm sure my credit card would take a major hit if I was ever fortunate enough to visit them. Just lovely, wonderful goodies!!

  4. What a fabulous quilt shop, so much to choose from. The blackbird with the button is my favourite, although, there are a few others I would like.

  5. Yes! This is definitely a quilt shop for the bucket list! So many tempting projects! Thank you for sharing with us!

  6. I love your blog...and your patterns. Really enjoy all the photos you post. Such pretty quilts and accessories.
