Heading home in the AM

I’m ready to get home and back to work. I have a couple HeartStrings tops to get quilted but first I’m going to finally put the EdgeRider wheels on my Premier. I’ve had them for a month (or more) and it’s time to get them out of the box and on the machine.

I did a lot of walking around downtown today but can you guess how I spent a couple hours this afternoon? I had several people mention Rosie’s quilt shop but in my travels if I don’t stumble across one I don’t typically search out local quilt shops after all as a Stashbuster, I don’t need any additional temptation to buy.


  1. Sometimes, I do search out quilt shops in other towns ~ but NOT because I expect to find/purchase something fabulous. I go so that I can simply be there ~ surrounded by the colors, listening to the differences in “shop talk” and inhaling the atmosphere…

  2. I think I’d spend my time in that spot, too! Such a lovely view.I’m interested in knowing how the edgerider wheels are — I’m imagining that they will make the heavy machine heads a bit easier and smoother to move.

  3. I’ve read about the edgerider wheels but haven’t bought them. And also the zippers for the canvases. Still thinking that one over.

  4. Mary, your reading spot looks so inviting – gosh I haven’t laid on the grass and read since I was in college and it was “the thing to do” around campus. 🙂Have a safe trip home! ~Bonnie

  5. Such common sense and restraint when there are quilt shops nearby. VBG Such a great place to read a book or simply relax. Travel safely.

  6. Let me know how it goes with your edge rider wheels. I bought mine at MQS in June and they’re still in the box. Let me know if they’re complicated to put on. I think I’ll have to have my hubbie do it if I can’t figure it out.

  7. If you didn’t make it to Rosie’s, you sure missed out on an opportunity to be wowed!! That’s the only shop I’ve ever been to that I have to take a break after a while. LOL
