There is nothing like visiting a quilt shop to get a little inspiration. Recently, I took a lovely, inspiring field trip to Little Quilts quilt shop in Marietta. Little Quilts has always had a slightly different focus than other quilt shops. Like the name implies, it started out focusing on small quilts. Consequently, they carry a lot of small print fabrics.
The other thing I love about Little Quilts is their book selection. It may be the largest quilt book selection in metro Atlanta. Finally, they have a strong focus on appliqué, which I love.
When I made my first small quilt which turned into my Have a Cup of Teaseries, I learned that it is really harder to make a small quilt than a large quilt. However, small quilts are worth the effort because they make great gifts, and they offer the quilter the opportunity to try new techniques without a huge financial investment.
When you are in the Marietta area, make a point to visit Little Quilts for some inspiration.
