outside the old German destination town of Cedarburg, Wisconsin,
is an adorable quilt shop.
Ye Olde Schoolhouse.
Blink and you'll miss it!
Once you pull up in the driveway, you can clearly see it is a former old time schoolhouse.
The schoolhouse was in operation from 1887 - 1958!
This was a little vignette outside the front entry door.
I just KNEW I was going to love this place!!
As you walk in,
the colors and warmth and textures welcomes everyone.
Every nook and cranny of the old schoolhouse is used for the passion of quilting.
Helloo pretty pastel-y bolts of fabric!
Second Disclaimer: I may be up for adoption if my Ma reads this. I'm pretty certain the adoption fee will be waived, in fact, Ima thinkin' Ma will PAY you.
Anyhoo, there's baskets and baskets of sewing items.
There was a room full of just
books and booklets.
The old schoolhouse Girls Bathroom
was still in place....
And oh my goodness gracious, it was a mother lode of all things quilting!!!
Rows and rows and rows of beautiful fabric...
were nestled on custom made
built onto benches that were left in the schoolhouse building.
These book cases are original to the schoolhouse.
Yards of fabric everywhere!!
Look up above the bookcases and there are adorable vintage displays like this one...
And this vintage stereo was playing the music loud and clear for shoppers...
I'm a sucker for anything bright and shiny and I loved
this embroidery thread display.
from this cute popcorn bowl?
A big part of the success of this super awesome quilt shop is the classes and quilt gatherings they host every week in the
lower level classroom.
We met the owner and one of the ladies who works there and those are happy people, lovin' what they're doing, let me tell ya!!!! This is a happy place!
As evidenced by the adorable painted chairs around the large work table...
And talk about hearts....be still my heart!!!!
LOOK AT THIS DOOR WITH THE ORIGINAL GLASS, WOULD YOU!!!
Okay. I admit I took a little peeky weeky down another set of stairs that led to someone's office.
But I didn't go DOWN them! Swear!
Cause that would have been rude. And trespassing. Even though I WANTED to.
Okay, last thing Ima show you is not related to sewing.
It was in the Quilt Shop kitchen.
DOUBLE OVEN RANGE!!!!!
AND IT STILL WORKED PERFECTLY!!!!!
Who wanted to take that range home???
I LOVED THAT STOVE!
Ultimately it occurred to me, if I did have that range in my own kitchen,
every one who enters my house would be so jealous, they wouldn't ever talk to me again, thinking I was a total showboat.
So I figured it was just less drama not to consider asking the ladies if I could buy it.
Okay, I'll go ahead and close for now but I would like to share a quilt from back in February that my Ma was working on.
I begged her to give me this quilt. I NEEDED this quilt. Look at those colors and textures, it's like a watercolor painting. Mom said she would give it to me.
Cause I don't have it.
Okay, so another riveting post wraps up.
Now I want y'all to promise me you won't go to that cute quilt shop up in Cedarburg, Wisconsin and buy that AWESOME HARVEST GOLD RANGE out from under me.
I KNOW you want it.
Talk at ya soon!!!
