Sunday Stash Report

My trip to Montana yielded quite a few adds to the stash. There are some great quilt shops up north!
Our first stop was Superior Threads in St. George Utah. I was hopping to pick up some cones of thread for my Longarm, but didn't realize the thread warehouse was closed on Saturdays. All was not lost, as the fabric store was open!

Our next stop was in Seeley Lake at Deer Country Quilts. This shop is huge and in a beautiful rustic building. The owner Pam Rose is in the process of selling the building and quilt shop and is hoping to find a quilter that wants to buy.

On to Kalispell and The Quilt Gallery, where I picked up the great National Parks Fabrics below. The Quilt Gallery not only has lots of fabric and notions, but they also have many finished quilts for sale.

I also picked up the pattern below called Big Sky Montana Memories- I love the feathered Star!

In search of the National Parks Quilt below, I also meet Gwen Carreon owner of
 Gwen Carreon Designs. She lives and works out of her home in Whitefish, Montana and has some beautiful applique designs. Check out her website above. She was also clearing out some great batik fabrics, so found a few below to take home with me.

Last stop on this trip was in downtown Whitefish at Whitefish Quilts. This is not only a quilt shop, but also a gift shop with all things Montana. It was fun to browse through and I picked up a kit below and a Glacier National Park Quilt block. This is a series of quilt blocks by Olde America Antiques to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks. I am hoping to collect a few more from all the parks that I have visited.

No finishes this week- only adds! This has put me in the red for the year, but a couple of finishes are on the horizon!

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD: 99 yards.
Purchased this week: 27.0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 77.0 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: -5.0 yards.

Check out more reports at Patchwork Times and have a great week!


  1. All your enhancements are great!

  2. Looks like a great trip you had, I too like the feathered star, good pattern, I bet you are already thinking of reds? The batiks are really nice, something different to have when needed. I guess you are ready for the next project with all the added fabrics you bought? lol

  3. Like all your purchases from the trip. Nice that you were able to visit so many new quilt shops. As I mentioned to you the batik on the furthermost right has my first vote. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the National Parks themed fabrics.
