If you are a Facebook fan then you may remember when Veronica stumbled upon a quaint little quilt shop on the way to All Dolls Are Art Conference a few weeks ago. She has been as antsy as a toddle since we decided to make them the Shop of the Month for August!
The Lost Pines Quilt Shop is a friendly little shop located in Bastrop, Texas. (Approximately 30 miles SE of Austin, Texas on Highway 71.)
When Veronica stopped in at the "best lil quilt shop" and called us back at the office, she went on and on about it. "I want to move in here and never leave!" she said! "It is just so wonderful and the owners, Mary and Linda are so sweet!"
The Lost Pines Quilt Shop opened its doors January 22, 2009 and was determined to provide its visitors and customers with the best fabrics and notions for both quilters and seamstresses. They are also supports of the Quilts of Valor Foundation and are ready to help you chose fabrics, patterns and more if you are looking for a project with patriotic pride!
Their fabric selection is varied, from geckos that will make you smile to flowers and veggies that is sure to make you want to start a garden, you could easily spend a whole day in this little store trying to decide which fabrics and notions are your favorites.
In their most recent newsletter, Linda says, "We have had some fun and exciting bolts of fabric delivered over the last couple of weeks. Colorful Maraca’s, playful geckos and lizards, bright and cheerful floral, under the sea and parrots in the jungle. We received the Northcott “Stars and Stripes” and made kits using the eagle panel. In fact, Mary made a sample and it is on display. It is gorgeous! Northcott was kind enough to send brochures regarding Quilts of Valor. For those of you who are interested in helping with that project, be sure to pick up your brochure here in the shop."
Now that sounds like a project to kick your shoes off and get to work on!
