Prescott quilt shop hop with Tie Dye Judy

Yesterday, I hit the road with blogger friend Tie Dye Judy for a day of fabric shopping in Prescott, Arizona. Can you tell by our clothes that we both like the same colors?

First stop was Cloth Plus, located in an inconspicious warehouse building.

Despite the plain exterior, it was bursting with color inside, the prices were right, and I went a little beserk.

After paying for my first pile of fat quarters and half yards, I noticed a bin of tie dye prints ... back to the cutting board! But I have a good excuse. My son is getting married in July and I'm making colorful table toppers for each table and the bride loves tie dye.

Next stop was the equally colorful Seams Sew Right quilt store. It was hard to contain myself, there was so much color!

They had great colorful bins throughout the store stuffed with more goodies.

By then we were famished and ready for lunch at the very colorful El Gato Azul (The Blue Cat). Good choice, Judy! The food was delicious, but we dove in so fast that I forgot to get a photo of my turkey/avocado/tomato/lettuce wrap.


This is the view when I looked up from our patio table. The trees were starting to bud out -- spring in the desert is wonderful.

Then it was time for one last fabric store, Love It Again! This was a resale shop for all things fabric, and I got some good books and yarn. It also had a nice selection of quilt and dressmaker fabric precuts at good prices.

Sated and happily tired, we headed back down the highway under a turquoise sky while the hills rolled by.

Have a colorful day

Boy are YOU easy! ;-) Table toppers, huh? Well, it will be such a nice change from the usual white linen.
