Bluebonnet Trail Shop Hop

The picture above was taken in the Valli & Kim Quilt Shop in Dripping Springs, Texas. This was the only shop I took photos in because I forgot in the other shops. They were all wonderful! The shop above really thrilled me because it was in a large, spacious, sunny, fun filled building. Quilts hung from the rafters and every place you looked held bright, colorful fabrics, projects, and "props"! The tree you can see above has cloth flowers and birds. (I used my iPhone and didn't get great photos, but I'll show what I have!)This year was my first Bluebonnet Trails Shop Hop since I moved back to Texas. In the past, I have been in a quilt shop showing my patterns and demonstrating my applique method.
First up, my group of FUN ladies had our photos taken with mustaches! (That's me on the far right.) What you can't see is that to the left of the photo opportunity is chocolate and other goodies! (Tina, you held your mustache a little low and it just looks like you have NO TEETH!)


 This birdcage had cloth birds and the nesting material in the bottom are the very thin shreds of fabric left after they cut fat quarters! The stand was also covered in fabric.
 You can't really tell how large this light fixture is in this photo, but it was probably at least 36" across. The dandelion "puffs" around the perimeter are made of paper! I thought it was beautiful! It hung down low enough that I could touch one to tell. (I know, but there was no sign telling me I couldn't!)

This valance made of strips of cloth and hanging above the check out area really caught my eye. I might have to do this as a window treatment in my sewing room!

Be sure and come back next Thursday to see my contribution to the April Showers Blog Hop! I have some fun and different things to show you! (Be sure and check out each day's contributors. You're sure to come away with lots of ideas! Just click on the button on my sidebar to see the list and the day's top picks.)
Until then.....

  4. That valance is an interesting idea. I think it would look sweet in leftover pieces of lace. :-) And the dandelion puff light - WOW! That is so cool! Thanks for sharing.
