New Gig Harbor quilt shop!

Harbor Quilts recently closed, but a new quilt store has opened in the same location. Yeah for Quilt Revolution at 7716-C Pioneer Way!

Grand opening 10/11/12/13
(10 a.m. Nov. 12, 2013)

Owners Diane and Nancy have been filling it with goodies in preparation for the official grand opening on Tuesday, at 10/11/12/13. That's 10 a.m., Nov. 12, 2013. Stop by and buy! Let's keep the store in business, quilters.

Nancy, by the way, just got back from Houston where she had a gorgeous quilt in the International Quilt Festival.

This cute bed layered with beautiful quilts greets you as you enter, and the rest of the shop is arranged nicely with seasonal displays and luscious, colorful fabric and threads.

The display above of the Grunge fabric line by Basic Grey for Moda caught my eye and I just had to buy a pile of quarter yards. This only shows a portion of the colors. Nancy and Diane pointed out that this line is perfect for blenders.

As I was checking out, I overheard Nancy talking with this quilter and I found out that this is only her second quilt ... what an amazing start! Her name is Rachael Odom, and I love her style with its modern look.

Great color, as usual! Rachael's quilt with zigzags is so cute - I love to see young faces quilting!
