Jeanine,

Glad you had a great vacation. Have you heard of "touch and feel" computers?  :-)  Would love to see pictures of your recent purchase. I can drool from here.  Glad to have you back safe and sound. Hugs

Jeanine, I love Glacier Quilts! Haven't been there in a couple of years tho....it's a great store with a wonderful selection and very friendly, helpful staff! I miss that store although Bear Paw Quilts is pretty close! :-)

Jeanine:
some fabric I purchased in Kalispell, MT.  I LOVED Glacier Quilt Shop.  Went there twice and spent about $300 in just that one shop.

Thanks for the tip.  We're driving to the Leavenworth retreat this year, so I might have to make a stop!  I know your DH is supportive of your quilting habits, but since my DH experiences sticker shock when the purchases are tallied, was there anything else interesting in that town that I can send him to see while I'm shopping?  :-)

Glacier Quilts is in a shopping area with several other stores but I really didn't pay attention to what they were.  Surely he could get distracted somewhere!

They were really friendly!  That is what really makes a great quilt shop for me.

MNNancy, right across the parking lot from Glacier Quilts is a huge sporting goods store...everything from bicycling to hunting equipment....kinda like Cabela's but not! LOL Surely your hubby will be able to keep himself occupied while you "shop" at Glacier Quils! :)

I finally quilted my Eclectic Fever scrap quilt.  I designed this to use up 3 1/2 " squares I had a ton of.  This is the original one and why I named it...  These African scraps were donated and I just loved them.  My group has been making these for the past two months and it is fun to see the different fabric choices.

Jeanine I love the quilting on this one.

Nancy, glacier quilt shop is on the way from kalispel to whitefish in a largish, for the area, new mall.   It'll be on your right as you head towards whitefish.  Big forks has a nice shop, too.

So. If you head up from I-90 towards Sealy lake. Sealy lake quilt shop has one of my favorite quilt shops and they recently moved to a big new log building.   Sealy lake takes you into big fork. Which also has a nice shop.   You have just driven up the swan valley and it is beautiful.   It is the only place I have seen a grizzly bear outside of a park.

From big fork it is about a half hou r to the glacier quilt shop, follow the signs to kalispel and then whitefish.  Whitefish has a ski area.   Whitefish also has a nice smaller quilt shop and is a cute little town.

 Oh, and deer lodge has a fun quilt shop right on the corner in an old bank building.  Deer lodge is on I90 between bozeman and Missoula maybe.    Deer lodge has a huge old brick prison that is a museum.  Everything is on the main road.    Is randy sick of quilt shopping yet?

Big fork is also a cute little town.
