Somewhere, over the Rainbow.........

Rainbow's End is an endless maze of fabric. Enough to quench any quilters appetite. My sweet hubby gave me a GIFT CERTIFICATE for my quilting adventure :-) So of course I had to head over and see what fun things there were to explore!

When you walk in you are just overtaken by the beauty of color.....

And designs at every turn......

fabric, glorious fabric..............


Beautiful samples.......


Two walls and a center section full of sale fabric!!

And this quilt really caught my eye!

And YES I did find some goodies to bring home. The pattern for the above quilt, lots of Amy Butler fabrics, a piece of Ruby to go with the charm packs I have waiting in the wings, and some red and green for a Christmas quilt I've been saving fabric for.

Thank you sweet hubby, for making my Christmas so special.

All the LQS in this area are so small in comparison. We will be going to Jupiter at the end of March for our annual spring training trip. Wonder if I can talk DH into taking the long way home ... and pass through Dunedin on our way home.

I went to that wonderful quilt shop a few years ago now when I was on holiday with my quilting girlfriend in Florida from the UK -and we were speechless - we had never ever seen so much wonderful fabric and inspiration! I remember we bought YARDS and Yards! What a fab gift from your husband - lots of fabric to tempt you! The photos are great, brought it all back to me - thanks for sharing!
