Quilt Retreat in Milwaukee, WI

I have been sewing up a storm. I want to share with ya about a trip to Milwaukee, WI.

These are pictures were taken at the rest stop in Western PA. The tree leaves were changing their colors, very pretty!

I just thought the bear was so cute!

This was our hotel room in Milwaukee. I loved the warm colors, perfect for Fall!
You are probably thinking where is the quilt retreat? It was in the hotel room. I was sewing while hubby went to meetings. I got so much done! I borrowed Mom mom’s little Janome Gold. The machine worked great on the little coffee table. I had a cutting station set up on the desk.
I pieced a charity quilt I sign up for and two table runners. One of the runners is a surprise for my sister so I can’t show you yet. The charity quilt is for Quilts for kids they send me the kit very fast. The kit include everything but the bathing. I had so much fun piecing it! Now I have to quilt it!
I was lucky we stopped at few quilt shops. Inspired by nature I picked up these fall prints.
The first shop was “Quilts and Kreations”, OH.
On the way back to the high way my husband saw a sign for underground quilt shop. The shop was called “Olla Mae’s Drygoods ” and it was located in basement, we had to take an elevator to the underground level, under a bank. I found these treasures:
My favorite quilt shop on the trip was “Sew Little Time”,OH. It was a little shop with very friendly stuff.
Maybe it was my favorite because found these fabrics, aren’t they pretty?
I got my frame working so I will be posting about it! Stay tunned…
