What would your fantasy quilt shop look like? Mine would be bright and sunny with lots of natural lighting. But not in a way that would damage the fabric. It would be open and have lots of space to layout a project and audition the fabric choices.
It would have endless rooms, each dedicated to a specific type of fabric: brights, neutrals, batiks, 30’s, youthful, animals, etc… Fabrics would be repeated in each of the rooms as necessary so you wouldn’t have to travel from room to room (unless you wanted to). For instance, the neutral room would have reds. Did you know red was a neutral color? Alex Anderson taught me that. I would love a room full of manly fabrics. We seem to have a plethora of feminine fabrics, but I struggle to find something appropriate for the men in my life.
Best of all, in my fantasy quilt shop, all the fabric would be free and nothing would ever run out. This feature would allow me to finish that project I started 12 years ago without missing a block, or needing to mismatch colors.
I did ask what your fantasy quilt shop would look like…not expecting it to be practical or even possible.
