The quilt shop we visited was just outside Avon.  It is called Mt. Pleasant Quilts.  We really did have fun!.  I agree with Marsha. We definitely need another "field trip" in the spring.

Brooke,

Are you closer to Syracuse?  Born there and grew up there and my in-laws still live there.  There are a number of nice quilt shops in the Syracuse area as well.  I would be willing to come to the Syracuse area, "play" all day and take my 91 year-old mother in law out to dinner afterword if that becomes the plan.

Marsha,

Love the blues.  I had a lot of similar ones in MQ 6.  Tessa and I are taking pics for all that I have finished later today.  Hopefully we will get them up.  If not I will just have to bring it with me when we next meet up.

Kendall,

Webster is just a few minutes from me.  I live in the city in the Kodak park area. We absolutely should plan on getting together after the holidays. I LOVE this big wonderful kinship of quilters here at QCA, but somehow meeting in person makes it even more real.

Last weekend, I went to the Mancuso quilt show here in West Palm Beach.  It blew me away!  All that gorgeous fiber art, from very traditional to very modern, with a level of craftsmanship that made me cry with frustration and envy. 

The last day, I took along a camera, but the batteries died on me overnight and I couldn't take pictures.  Alas! 

If you ever have a chance to take a class with Jennie Rayment, I'd suggest you do so; she's a good teacher, and very lively.  A hoot, to use one of her own Britishisms.

There are a good half-dozen or so excellent quilt shops, large and small, in the mid-Florida belt.  I have a good friend and fellow quilter (she's a QCA member, encouraged me to join) who moved to Kissimmee last year.  I visit her every few months, and we spend several days driving westward to the Tampa area, "locally" in Orlando, and eastward to the coast. 

I visited some friends last September in the Norfolk-Portsmouth area of Virginia, and was treated to a tour of several lqs there.  Amazing!  I'm told that when I return, there are more shops waiting for me :)

Balya, I went on the last day Sat. and you are so right the quilts were outstanding. This was my third visit there and I come away either wanting to come home and burn my stuff or learn to do some of the quilting that they do myself.

I went thinking I would only take a few pictures only of the ones that sang to me, but before I made it half way thru the whole darn chorus was singing to me. I have quite a few pictures. LOL Did you vote for your favorite red and white quilt? I voted for the red work, hand pieced and hand quilted one. Can't wait for next year.

Ahhhh Mt. Pleasant, very pleasant people...hence the name, 😊.  If anyone is interested.... How about Material Rewards in Dansville also a great shop. Actually I think you could make it to both shops in a one day trip.  I am brave enough for a "cabin fever" shopping day....... On a clear crisp winters day.
