I was in Appleton WI on Monday and had a chance to visit Keep Me in Stitches, a colorful fun quilt shop, and my daughter Jordana spotted this cute hat with a ruffle on the band and a flower pin with a button in the middle. Jordana asked me if I would make her one in hot pink, black and white and I wanted mine in greens. I was pleased to discover the pattern was sized from infant to adult. There is fusible fleece for the brim and fusible interfacing for the body of the hat.
My quilting friend Jacqi Levy just opened a quilt store in Appleton WI called "Keep Me in Stitches". She wanted to fill a void and have a local shop that had contemporary fabrics. I was in Appleton yesterday and checked it out. I love brights and batiks and this shop has both-I saw beautiful fabrics I had only seen online!! It is very clean and pure with the white walls, tables and shelves. The brights look wonderful in this shop and there is nice lighting coming in through the windows. It is easy to find on Richmond St. (highway 47) riht off of Highway 41. She plans to be on Facebook and have e-mail updates as soon as she is more settled.I encourage everyone who quilts and is in Appleton to check it out!!
