just Shopping

Yep, just shopping... just shopping at Whipstitch!  My home away from home in Atlanta. 

The only time we left home over the sewing weekend was to journey in town to the Whipstitch store to peruse the fabricy goodness therein.  And, there is a bit more fabricy goodness at the physical store than living on the virtual Etsy shelves, which makes a visit there all the more fun. 

Come along with me?


There are Monsterz at the door!


And some pretty cool quilts on the walls...

wow. that. quilt.

And, if Deborah's there you can spot her friendly smile or silly banter from a mile away (if you have x-ray vision). 


Most everyone was pulling from Ellen Lucket Baker's Quilt Blocks.  I did!

The wall of hoops is guaranteed to make you smile.

These Ric Rac Rabbits informed me that a quilt is in my future.

Creative Thursday!

I think these bolts were in my hands within seconds of entering the door?  No joke.

um... me?

So, here's what a brought home, one way or another.

Summersville, Quilt Blocks, Lizzy, Alexander Henry

Summersville Brush Strokes - the scale is perfection, Flying Stripe, Jewels and Alexander Henry's new La Paloma.  After cutting so many neutrals for the Simply Stacked coin quilts, these seemed warranted.

Summersville, Half Moon, Melody Miller

More Summersville, some of which is already in quilt form and Half Moon and typewriters from miss Melody Miller!

Quilt Blocks, Monsterz, Zakka Style

And then, just for fun... more Quilt Blocks.  Bright lemon yellow Static from Monsterz and Zakka Style by Rashida Coleman-Hale

Yep, quite the loot.  New fabric is always inspiring.  Now, I'm really done writing about it and desperate to start sewing.  Like, I need to do it NOW.  I'll work on some things and show you a project tomorrow, fingers crossed!


  1. You stashed some lovely choices! Whipstitch is such a fun shop. I'm glad we got to visit!

    1. Hello Jacey! I made the happy discovery that I live in your area of the country. I'm new to the area and was wondering if there is any place as cool as Whipstitch in our town?

  3. Someday I'll have extra money and a good LQS nearby...but for now...I can only drool and try to contain my jealousy. :)

  4. Oh, that looks like so much fun! None of the quilt shops around here carry much in the way of modern fabric, so when I make it to one that does it's always a fight with myself not to buy everything in the store! It looks like you struck a pretty good balance there.

    1. Haha, yes,a balance. I definitely wasn't too shy about buying =)

  5. Those typewriters are gorgeous! I just spent all my money on yarn but I think if I visited Whipstitch I'd be tempted to spend the same on fabric! :D

  6. Hey now, that's mean taking us virtually to places we can't visit lol Enjoy your new loot anyway

  7. I am so jealous....I wish I could found such nice shop in Norway... lucky you.

  8. The shop looks so awesome, the layout of it seems very practical to actually see the fabric you're about to buy! Great choices on the fabric you brought =D

  9. I would be in so much trouble if I had a shop near me that sold so much pretty fabric!!! I have to do all my shopping online and that's bad enough =P

  10. I stopped by there a few weeks ago on my way through Atlanta. My kids embarrassed me so badly that I may never be able to show my face there again! Great fabric store though!

  11. Looks like a fun fun store in real life. I just found a great store in the Denver area called Fancy Tiger Crafts. Love it! And I love the Alexander Henry La Paloma. I'm gonna have to get me some of that.

  12. i can still hear Deborah's laugh! it was a very fun store!

  13. Oh lush, wish I had such a lovely store near me!!
    Then again maybe not lol!!

  14. Wasn't it hard to stop shopping? What a great trip. Fabric shops really feel like a little slice of Heaven! Always leaving you with a warm feeling when you leave.

  15. Whipstitch was such a fun shop! I must have been inspired, because I'm almost done re-organizing my studio!

  16. I love the yellow static! Looks like a rockin' store!
