QBees Shop Hop Continues!

After we had lunch at Texas Roadhouse in Newark, the next quilt shop was in Columbus so we had about a 40 minute drive.  I had an idea as to where we were going but Gladys let us use her Garmin (who we named "Stella) and she never missed a turn. 

Quilt Trends is located off of SR 161 in Columbus.  I have not been to this shop since they moved to this location. 

When you walk in, you are wowed by the many samples they have on display.

 I love the Zig Zag quilt on the wall!  It was designed by a staff member of Quilt Trends.

We were all amazed by this Christmas Tree that was reversed appliqued.  Lucky for us, the maker of this wallhanging was in the shop and explained the technique. 

Of course, there has to be a quilt made with Scarlet & Grey!  GO BUCKS!!

The arrangement of this shop was very nice.  It was easy to see the samples, patterns, notions & fabrics
They even had work stations so you could try new rulers! 

I loved the colors radiating from this table of fat quarters.

They have a very nice classroom area.  We caught everyone eating lunch.

To the right of this area is a Handi-Quilter quilting machine.  It was being used by a patron while we were there.  The staff here were very friendly and helpful.  One of the staff wanted to join our group.  The more the merrier!

Next stop......The Glass Thimble.....where the incident be continued....
